In the past, the location of the next World Tournament was made available to competitors upon receiving their competitor’s package. However, this year the staff at Worlds kept the location for the 2013 tournament a big secret until the closing ceremony. Proving the rumors of a non-US location to be true, Worlds 2013 has been confirmed for Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada! See you all in Canada next year for Worlds 2013!
