Chicago Open Matchmaking...for Those that Suck

Post by Cheynem » Fri Mar 09, 2018 10:42 pm

I'm looking for a team for CO. I know all the good players have formed teams, but I see a lot of people still need teams. I'm going to start work on a packet next week. Let me know if you want to team up.

I also think I don't have a team (I can't remember if I do??). Anyway I sometimes suck and sometimes don't suck, but you really won't know until it's too late for everyone.

Me and Benji are still looking for 2 fun teammates. We are not elite.

UPDATE: Aidan Mehigan has joined us. We would like someone who knows some science, ideally.

Jonathan Magin and I could use two more players, especially someone who knows science.

Am happy to contribute tiny bits of literature and philosophy as well as the lowest-level generalism that could even be discussed as such.

I'm definitely a fourth scorer at this level, but I can contribute bits of lit/American history/SS.

Team Formation spreadsheet is here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/ ... edit#gid=0

Caleb Kendrick (and Itamar) and I need two one more players. We'd like to write a quality packet for the first deadline on May 13th. We don't plan on doing well, so no pressure. Bonus points if you know science (chemistry in particular). Message one of us if interested.

I'm thinking this might finally be the year I convert to staffing... but if anyone wants my useless old self, I'll throw my hat in.

Be warned: my submission will probably be late (I'll pay for it, though!) and I neg and am unlikely to stop.

Are any high schoolers here interested in a high schoolers team?

(I’m still not quite sure if I’m personally going yet though)

I'm on the fence about playing or staffing this year, but if you want me on your team, drop me a line.

So obviously high schooler co team isn't happening, but I have confirmed that I am able to attend, so I am now looking for a team.

I play (and will be able to write) science and nothing else. I will be able to get 6/6 science done by June 10th and possibly May 27th.

After a change of plans, it turns out I can be at CO this year after all. So, if any partially-formed teams need a science player (mainly bio/chem) who can also get the occasional visual art or thought question, let me know. I'll gladly help write whatever's left for the packet as well.
