Ok, sorry, guys, but willieroe pm'ed me last night and he gets the last spot. I'll stick you guys on the alternates list though, and if a few folks drop out, some of you might still get in.
Anyway, I'll petition Menyak for a forum for our usage. Once that gets going we can hammer out the exact rules. In addition to the positional changes, I envisioned a somewhat faster-paced bidding than our first-rate counterparts. But I'll certainly take input on any decisions like that before making major changes.
If anyone wants to take the blue pill, now would be time.
