BTW, the restriction of 2 kids per school is still in effect for now, but sign ups are currently open to everyone who is not in the Champions League already. In other words, this includes all OSPLites from earlier this year, including those in Rd. 5.

I will try to give this another go, though the 8pm games might be a bit too early for me, I could almost definitely do this if all/most my games are at the later times.

Is there any way that there could be a session in the summer? I can't do it during the school year because of homework and such. I realize that the summer is probably really inconvenient/a break time for quizbowl, but I would definitely do OSPL if it was offered during the summer.

Signatures are particularly useful when I otherwise have no way of knowing who you are.

OSPL 2012-2013 will start in early August after the final ACE camp. You can probably get in on Round 1, but look for an announcement in July. I have just a few things to do between now and then...

Eh, I go to Chapel Hill, not East Chapel Hill, though I must say that their quiz bowl team is a lot better than ours. You can keep the East Chapel Hill, NC part on there though. The zoning line is a couple of streets away from my house.

Myself and a few DCC kids do frequent skype quizbowl sessions over the summer. You'd be more that welcome to join.

For rankings purposes Kiev was missing several key players and thus should be considered "Kiev B+".

Try to find a team that needs a sub, or just get the packet after the games are played.
