Results will go up on the main page late afternoon, with full stats early evening. They will be seen in the comments section at the bottom of the main page.

Harriet Tubman has ties to the Niagara region in Canada; herself and many of her family members, after being freed from slavery, spent significant time in the St. Catharines, Ontario area. In fact, the Government of Canada declared her a Person of National Significance in 2005.

Among the things named for her in St. Catharines include Harriet Tubman Public School, which opened in September 2015.

The Salem Chapel, British Methodist Episcopal Church Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad National Historic Sites are less than 15 minutes from Niagara Falls.

      Lani was a good champion, and I hope George can make it to the ToC.

      • Well, considering that after Seth’s performance, things will be uneasy to find ToC competitors. You’ve seen how Arthur Chu, Julia Collins, and Matt Jackson did. Their performances impacted the games, resulting in a lot of 1-time, 2-time or 3-time champs. It takes time until we find a good potential candidate for the ToC, depending how the champ performs. After all, if a 3-time champ show signs of fatigue or having trouble with the buzzer, then that could be the difference between a ToC candidate or a dethroned champ. It’s a coin toss, if you ask me.

        • Frank Smith | October 26, 2016 at 9:47 pm |

          If George wins about $25,000 in 3 games, that’ll be enough to get around $75,000. That would put him between Susan Cole and Laurie Macdougall, and will eliminate Alex Maggio from being a candidate.

  2. George Stuart did not get to watch his first winning game due to the senatorial debate.
