Copa Rushmori XXXVII - Sign-Up Thread (ONLY Rushmore)

Postby Rushmore » Sat Feb 27, 2021 5:57 pm

[OOC: This thread is intended to be used exclusively by nations in Rushmore, so if you are not a nation in Rushmore or a moderator performing his/her duties, please refrain from posting here.]

Another World Cup cycle is about to end, and this means it's time for a new Copa Rushmori edition, the thirty-seventh one! With Nephara claiming victory in the thirty-sixth and most recent Copa Rushmori, held in Græntfjall & Tikariot, now we move on to a new edition in which a new winner could potentially claim a piece of silverware and inscribe its name in the Roll of Honour, and that winner could be YOU!

Sign up in this thread, and if you wish to submit a host bid, you can do so here as well.

The Askari, not the home of the World Cup, are also going to rock up if it makes a prettier, more rounded number. As per the norm, there will be a roster but no RP, so use your judgement re: whether to boot them.

Here to... collect our fourth final loss?

The adjective is Savojar; Savojarnan is not a word!
I am a student of (European) politics, ice hockey fan, left-wing communist bordering on anarchy, and European federalist. Enjoy!
