mpellegrini wrote:Delaware has 6 players for our two teams. So if there are any free agents or half-teams out there, contact me and we can work something out.
Also, none of my teammates want to do Eyes that Do Not See, so it looks like we won't be staying for it after all.
Lapego1 wrote:Actually, it'd be great format-wise if your two could join up with a team already out there because we won't be able to field house teams and are still stuck at 17 at the moment.

Lapego1 wrote: If we cut those two and have some of you join Nick (and Bruce?) and some Jerry + Trevor (if they're okay with it), I have no problem with it. We'd do a full round robin with 12 teams + finals if necessary (no byes).

Look, people should not be buzzing in halfway through Norse myth tossups and very reasonably guessing things from Hindu mythology; as a moderator, you should consider this a big red flag. I've actually noticed that almost every Penn tournament, while on the whole filled with competent moderators, has a small handful of atrocious rooms that everyone waits outside of and complains about. I think there are probably enough people in the area that moderators could be recruited to correct this (if we had been told, for instance, there was a moderator shortage, we could have brought one), so I'm hopefully a new strategy might produce the first ever pre-8pm finish for Penn Bowl next month.
