Canada Day is July 1st, and the U.S. Independence Day is July 4th. Both of them are huge holidays for our respective countries, and for those of us living close to the border they often merge together. Here in Niagara, for instance, there is a "Friendship Festival" in Fort Erie that spans the gap and celebrates both holidays, and in other border towns there are similar events. This year we have what is known as a "perfect" Friendship Festival weekend, with July 1st being on Friday and July 4th being on Monday, and many of the younger and/or more adventurous souls will be partying the whole four days through!
In celebration of a perfect Friendship Festival weekend I've assembled this tournament.
This is a 32-player 1v1 elimination bracket tournament. 16 players will start on the Canadian side and 16 will start on the U.S.A. side. There will be multiple games played at once so it is premium-only.
Tournament is now FULL. Specify on signup if you wish to play on the Canada side or the U.S.A. side!

More important than those two insignificant holidays would be that July 1 and 4th are Independence Day and Liberation Day respectively, in Rwanda. I would join if there were a Rwandan division.
Jk, count me in
It’s not perhaps a sentiment one has too often in life, but it can be said without hesitation that the past year or so has been a good one for popular accounts of the lives of 17th-century English polymaths.
