Intercontinental Exchange 2007 : European vs North American

This year, the European players must show to the American players that we are a continent of travelers. Welcome in the First Intercontinental Exchange!
It's very simple. Each player, from a continent who goes to another continent to play, earn one point for his own continent.
MonthEuropeNorth America
January3 pts (WAC=>Lester, Clouet, Sevin)
February1 pt (Prezcon=>Joly)
April1 pt (CODCon=>Joly)
So European player, I invite you to go to the WorldDipCon, in Vancouver. American, I invite you to go to the EuroDipCon, in Marseilles!

For example, the last year, the North American players would have won 9-5.

Players from Chicago in Marseilles?

It would be great if our group sent a representative or two to the EDC, but let's not forget that the biggest Diplomacy event of the year is right here in North America. No, I'm not talking about Weasel Moot (June 9-10 at the Elks Veterans Memorial in Chicago!). I'm referring to the World Diplomacy Championships in Vancouver in August.

We will be happy to see YOU in Marseilles!
