Next year we'll have a Montreal get-together at the same time at my place. HWC will provide the LN2 and we'll get to a-benchin'.

Plane ticket to TO is cheap...

Come join us :P I'll supply the beverages :P

The question I had though, is would using Dice/LN2 for the Country Cup knock a user out of the Enthusiast's league and into the OC league?

Looks like we may have benching parties in all the major urban centres across Canada for next year's CC! That's exciting to think about - I think we'll collectively be much better prepared for next year.

And yes Slaughter - as far as I know that is, in fact the case. As soon as you submit one sub-zero score, you're in the OC League, and there is no way around it. Having said that, are you familiar with the literary works of Richard Bachman?

Actually, who needs LN2? I have a huge deck. If the next country cup is held in winter, all computers outside!

Coordinated benching sessions across the country streaming live? Might be a stretch but would be damn cool if you ask me :P LoL

And yes, I am quite familiar with Bachman ;)

Edit: And is it a bad thing that I started saving up for next year already?

Would be nice if it started a month sooner in my opinion as it can be quite tough that close to the holidays. :P

...or a month later; we are, after all, blessed with a Canadian winter!

Aye, Aye, I'm in for this. Already starting to contemplate a hotel room in Montreal if the LN2 is flowing over there! HMMM..... yep we have to get this going for next year.
