For anyone wishing to attend, the United States team is captained by Seabrig. His contact information can be found in this AA thread. I am not attending; this is simply a public service announcement. Now back to your regularly scheduled programming...

Serge Lavigueur is in charge of forming the National Team of Quebec (they insist that they are from Quebec, not Canada, though we have no right to call them as they like as long as Quebec is not a country)
Serge's e-mail is sergelavigueur@sympatico.ca
His profile is http://www.facebook.com/?ref=logo#!/profile.p...eTheater=1

Rather than starting a conversation about this topic, which has been mulled over considerably, I suggest going to the Armour Archive and searching "Battle of Nations" and you will find debate about the inherent dangers of this sport to your heart's content. I think it would be against the wishes of the original poster to have this become a thread about that particular perspective on the game. Just a thought.
