    2022 Crystal Ball Predictions

    It's time again. Copypasted from last year:

    5 predictions per person (please exercise some self-discipline in sticking to just 5)
    Maximum 1 prediction related to Covid event cancellations/postponements/substitutions
    Predictions need to be specific/measurable
    Award for most of 5 predictions correct
    Honour for the most extreme prediction that turns out to be correct

    Deadline is 19th January, the last day to put predictions is the day before Monte starts.
