Same.
I, too, can staff this.

Also, unless you guys want me working on this rather than ICT, I won't be able to do much, if anything, in the writing department.
If you want to just sleep at the hotel on Friday night we will likely have room for you in our room.

Also, since it looks like we'll only have 5 teams, I'm going to push this back to 9:30 PM on Friday in order to give people some more time to get to the hotel. If you're playing in this tournament and that start time is still too early for you, let me know and maybe we can arrange it so that your team has the first bye.

To make things simple, we'll all meet in the lobby starting at 9:15 PM and figure out the rooms and schedule. If there's enough interest amongst peole who didn't write packets we will have a second bracket, although you will have to pay a small fee to play.
Thanks, but my brother wound up switching his day and night weeks, so I won't be heading out for this.

Agh, read that is "my brother wound up having stitches" and was super confused.

Regarding packets: Just send them to me at [email protected]. If you can't get them to me by 11:00 AM Pacific tomorrow make sure you have them with you on a flash drive. Make sure your packet has been randomized and has super powers and powers marked.

By the way, I've given Jerry's team the first bye so that he'll have some more time to get to the hotel.

One more thing: If your packet has a theme that you care to mention before the packet is read, make sure to put that explanation at the top of the packet.

How should we mark powers and superpowers?

Everything in power should be bolded. Put some symbol (I think the standard is an arrow, but it doesn't really matter so long as you're consistent) where the super power ends.

I would be delighted to be the fourth player on any almost complete team; otherwise, I would be happy to read. Any extra fees would be no problem for me as usual.

Good riddance to my CPS 3rd quarter tomorrow,

As a reminder, if you're playing, staffing or thinking of playing, meet in the lobby of the Hyatt Regency at 9:15 PM tonight.

Hey, is the group of pay-to-play people definitely going to be allowed in the tournament?

Is there anyway the packets can be put in a zip file. I mean I am having an extremely hard time with opening the file they are currently in.

This was the most genial, fun bunch of qb matches I've ever attended, and just want to thank everyone who put in time on it.
