Play Chicago Open for Free! - Need 17th Team

Post by No Rules Westbrook » Sun Jun 24, 2012 9:55 am

Now accepting applications from anyone who has always wanted to play Chicago Open, but found that roughly $30 entry fee hopelessly out of their price range.

Seriously, a 17th team would be helpful - so if anyone wants to be on it, let me know. Also, if any of the teams already signed up has any doubts about whether they'll make it - let me know, cause I don't want to add team 17 only to have a team drop.

If we can't find a team 17, I suppose people will just have to play empty chairs that round.

Dartmouth has been wanting to attend for a while; we've just been dealing with writing the packet. It's half done and we can pay the full entrance fee no problem.

You can't beat free. I would like to be on a free team.

It looks like that Dartmouth team signed up, so I don't think there's still a need for a free team to play unless a team drops.

A team consisting of some IMSA people would like to get on a waitlist.
