im doing no assigment and we are doing no draft pick. So players reach out for captain and captain ask for players.

Wyman and MickyB are captains now. Wyman has his team already filled I think. PS captain we need to share our emails.

I dont think Europeans are going to have a problem with scheduling. Worst case scenario is West coast at -8 and Germany at +1.

so the start can be at 9-to 11 am on the West Coast and start at 18H-20H in Germany.

I don't understand why people are making pairs when we should be looking for players, scheduling will be hard, and even when you will play more often with some when avaible, you will most likelly end up playing with whoever on your team.

Hanoi5 is my captain, and we wellcome anyone on board, if could pick I pick players without partners: gwnn Codo and anyone who wants to enter.


EDIT: I see Tomi2 wants to try a german team, that's fine, if you find ennouh players, if yo don't join us! :)

I can partner you if you want. I'd like to play and have no partner either.

I would join in, but only if it would be the entirely B/I team (B/I of course in the terms of forums, not the MBC)

Is the number of players on a team going to be capped at 8?

I'm happy to be a sub but am quite busy and have a severe time zone problem (i.e. it is around midnight EST when I get home from work).

Me and my partner would be happy to find a team. We have pretty open schedule if that's a plus.

We'd especially love to play first couple of matches as a training before White House.

Teams of 6 or 8 doesnt matters. I dont suggest making a team of only 4, but if you do make sure to be very available on the weekends. Last chance for becoming a captain. We can also allow 2or4 "wildcards" (any player may play=1wildcard, a outside pair=2 wildcard) so that way some players that do not fit in teams might have the chance to play after all.

Team 1 Mgoetze-jschafer
hrothgar-Jillybean
tomi2-400 Volt

Team 2 Csgibson-Atul


Team 3 benlessard-Zayats (benoitlessard@hotmail.com)
Shaztaz-Jllachan
Flameous-teemuhy
We might accept 1 more pair if all others teams are filled.

Team 4 wyman-bunnygo
kfay-jchiu
jjbrr-gwnn

Team 5 MickeyB
Sasioc, Simplicity

Team 6
Hanoi5-Fluffy
Phil_20286+Wank


artK78 + guymath
Inquiry+Barmar
Codo+ ??
Valardent + his partner
Han + Mikeh ?
jmcw + ?
diana_eva+ dwar0123
P_Marlowe+ partner



I dont have problems with team of more than 8 but ill be sending the money to the captain and he will do the sharing. With team of 6 i can send individual checks or 20 euro banknotes.
