The 2nd Annual VETO Escapes to Toronto Ontatio (VETO mirror)
- This is a supplement to Peter's previous post about VETO 2004 and
expands on the details of the mirror in Toronto.
U of T Trivia Club's 2nd Annual VETO Escapes to Toronto Ontario
(VETO) will be held on Saturday, July 17, 2004 at the University of
Toronto, St. George Campus, Downtown Toronto, Ontario from 9am to
Since the university is very strict about room bookings (we were
able to book 3 rooms), the number of teams is limited to eight (8).
The tourney will take place at Hart House near Queen's Park.
As before, the title of Nerd Of The East (NOTE) will be presented to
the tournament's leading scorer. Players are encouraged to sponsor a
prize of their own.
For those coming from out of town, Toronto is easily accessible by
airplane, train, bus, and car. There is plenty of affordable
accommodation located in the downtown core near the university
within walking distance (or you can take the subway).
