The competition takes place in the Burridge Gym in the Ivor Wynne
Centre. Doors open at 6 p.m. and the competition begins at 7:30 p.m. (Tickets will be available at the door for $6.)

The team from McMaster, which placed third last year, will be a top contender again this season.

The competition format is as follows: each team will perform their
