WAO II@ The Internet

Postby Sit Room Guy » Sat Nov 25, 2017 9:59 pm

This thread, for now, is to assess interest for a skype mirror of WAO II to be held probably in February after the Stanford mirror happens. For now, we're looking at doing this two weeks after Regs but are not married to the date. HS teams would be allowed, as would open teams (with an increased fee to account for the fact that the deadline on packet submission elapsed a long time ago). Would anyone be interested in this?

I would be interested in this. I'd prefer for it to be on a Sunday.

Here's a signup sheet solely to gauge interest. Fees will be $100 per team; $60 if the team is 1 or 2 people.
Date will most likely be Jan 28 or Feb 4, but could be later if people want it to.

I'd be interested, time and cost permitting.

Edit: If time permits but cost doesn't I'd also be open to reading instead :P

Just a quick note about this: since Jakob and I are reading for this, and we don't anticipate a ton of teams, I do not think we need any additional staffers at this time. We appreciate those who have graciously volunteered, but I believe firmly in compensating those who read for Skype tournaments, and we don't want to ask people to give their time for free or if they are not needed.

Also, please sign up for this if you are interested ASAP. We would like to pick a date soon.

This will be happening February 4 if we get enough people for four teams; otherwise this'll just be doubles.
