Hey all--I'm "TDing" Mike's set Chomping Down at Shoney's via Skype/Discord. It's eight packets of all tossups, so the plan is to do a shootout over a group call. To accommodate all time zones, I'm planning on starting at or a little after 11 Central on 8/18. I'm also unopposed to a second reading given conflict or an overflow, possibly the following weekend.

Cost is $4 a head, message Mike about details.

I'd love to play, but would super vote for this to be done on Discord.

You might want to set up a signup sheet.

I'll play this if only so I can complain about Mike's taste in film.

Sorry--too busy watching Speed 2: Cruise Control right now to think of a comeback.

Due to a sudden personal conflict, this will now be on the 19th.

If you want to pay me, you can use PayPal (paypal.me/MichaelCheyne) or message me for my address. I don't have Venmo.

Is this event still starting around 11 CST on the 19th, then? If possible, I might ask to be moved back slightly later as while I can't stick around probably for all the packets, I'd like to listen in to some.

Sure, as it's Sunday I'll start it at noon CST.

Sorry to do this last-minute, but some work stuff came up and I have to drop from this event.

This happened and went fairly smoothly barring a few technical difficulties.

Chip Horton powered the final tossup of an eight-packet shootout to beat Alex Schmidt in a very strong comeback, with Rein Otason taking third.

Final scores:

Chip: 20/14/19, 345
Alex: 19/8/6, 335
Rein: 10/10/8, 210
Trevor Davis: 185
Lawrence Simon: 8/7/2, 180
Benji Nguyen: 5/10/3, 160
Stephen Eltinge: 6/3/0, 120
Raynor Kuang: 6/6/7, 115
Sam Braunfeld: 3/4/5, 60
Gabe Guedes: 3/3/3, 60

Obligatory thanks to Mike for writing an excellent set as usual.

To be fair, Alex did miss about a quarter or half of a packet at some point.
