I'm probably going to this site and am currently a free agent. Shoot me a message if you want to team up.

EDIT: Looks like I'm teaming up with Jakob Myers and Andrew Wang for this. We tentatively have a fourth as well but I'll wait for them to confirm that they can actually go before I let the cat out of the bag.

I'd like to go to this, if I can get the time off. Will you be mirroring side events?

I am looking for a team, but there's a big IF if I can make this (my mom's having surgery around this time, but the date isn't finalized yet).

Seems perfectly possible to run at least Scattegories 2!

First side event announced: viewtopic.php?f=19&t=20791

We'll also likely be running at least two more (Scattergories 2, Aidan's architecture tournament).

I've just announced a visual geography tournament, and I'd love to run it Saturday night either before or after Scattergories 2 for anyone who's interested.

Andrew the Hart and I are looking for teammates for the main event.

Update: Our teammates are both named R.R.

Michigan can only bring 6 people, so me and Kazuma Shimanaka are looking for two teammates to join "Michigan B", preferably who know literature/arts but whatever. PM or email me if you're interested.

Edit: We're playing with Conner Reynolds and Harris Bunker.

I'm still available, in case anyone is looking for another player.
I play science.
