This is the sign-up sheet for the first Novice round of the Online Skype Practice League (i.e. OSPL) for the 2012-2013 school year. The second Expert season will begin in October. OSPL September will run for 4 weeks beginning on either Tuesday or Wednesday, September 11-12. There are four time slots available for matches this season, with all times Eastern: 8 PM Tuesday, 9 PM Tuesday, 8 PM Wednesday, 9 PM Wednesday. If you have scheduling requests, please include that in your sign-up.

If you have not already, please read the OSPL General Announcement post to learn about rules changes, particularly those regarding substitutions and timeliness of playing your scheduled matches. Also per the general announcement, entries into the Novice league must be approved by either myself or David Madden. If either myself or David Madden deny your entry into this Novice league, you are welcome to play in the Expert league in October.

Teams will be constructed once all players have been confirmed. The winner of this season will not be eligible to play OSPL again until the OSPL Novice Champions League in May. The prize for winning this season, aside from Champions League entry, will be edited into this post at a later date.

I'll take a spot (unless the fact that I was a sub for the last Expert round disqualifies me from playing in this one).
I can't do Tuesdays at 8 pm, though.
Edit: I now can't do Tuesdays at either time.

Hi everyone --

Even though we're still a few people short of filling teams, we'll move ahead.

Please let me know which night is preferable - Tuesday or Wednesday - and if you haven't already, please add me on skype (greg.bossick). You can also email or pm me your preference.

I'll post teams tomorrow.

If you need to fill slots then I'll join. As for the fact whether I qualify, Matthew Powers can testify that I get about as many questions as he does when we've played on skype. If I am added, my preference on when to play will change on a week by week basis

If there's still time, I'll join. I'd prefer 8 or 9 PM EST on Wednesday.

Teams and this week's match schedule are now in the first post.

Also, the winning team's players will receive one free History Bee entry at a State or Regional level tournament. (This applies retroactively to the winners of the August Expert season, too.)

OMG, as a long lost indoor soccer fan, I completely and totally approve of these team names. Go KIDS (first to play a match in the new MISL vs the New York Arrows; sometime in early 1978 IIRC)!

Definitely thought I'd be emailed/contacted about this in some way/shape/form (HSQuizbowl does allow you to email people by clicking their names). Nonetheless, I just happened to come to this website today and find that not only had I been confirmed (since there had been a "pending" notice last time I stopped by here some weeks ago) but the matches had already started. I sincerely apologize for not being able to play last night, but this caught me more than a little off-guard.

it's fine. you're on my team and we lost pretty badly. i think it was 305 - 80 or something like that. one of my friends thought that he would be emailed as well, so he forgot to sign in

I probably can't make Wednesday next week, so I would prefer to have Cleveland's game on Tuesday. It's not a big deal about being notified as long as you know now when the games are.

I can't move the Wednesday game. There are three players on that team who specifically requested Wednesdays when signing up.

I did receive a request to start at 8:15 tonight which I will grant. Remember to contact me on skype; my name is greg.bossick there.

I won't be able to make the 4th round game because I'll be at a High Q taping. Is there already an established Cincinnati sub, or should I try to find one for me between now and October 3rd?

I don't think we have a sub, but I can find one for us.

I'm going to need one for tonight, too, unfortunately. I've got one now, though. His name is Matthew Chen, and he's a sophomore at my school (Norcross High).

EDIT: Chen had to cancel at the last minute, but I found another sub who will be able to make it to the last match. Her name is Erin Davenport, and she's a junior at Walton High.
