STIMPY Skype Mirror (4/11)

Post by Gonzagapuma1 » Sat Mar 21, 2015 11:30 am

Hello!

I'm looking to gauge interest in a STIMPY Skype mirror. Right now, I think the easiest date for this is on 4/11. We didn't receive that many packets from teams, so it's possible this could be an open mirror. HOWEVER, if there is any way you can attend a mirror in person/have signed up to play an in person mirror, you cannot play this mirror. Anyway, if you are interested in either a non-open mirror OR an open mirror please indicate so by posting here or emailing me at danjpuma at gmail.com. Thanks!

EDIT: More info in fourth post. It is an open mirror with a fee of $15 per person and a minimum fee of $30 per team.

Field:
J&J
Sethlene
Stanford (1)
UCLA-ish(1)
Washington (2)
WUSTL (2)

I think there's enough interest for a McGill current + alumni team. Will confirm when I can.

Stanford is interested (we are unable to attend the Caltech mirror on 4/25 because we'll be helping out with Admit Weekend as part of the stewardship we're required to do in exchange for club funding). I will edit this post when I have specifics. EDIT: A Stanford team consisting of Stephen Liu, Dennis Sun, Kyle Sutherlin, and myself will be playing this tournament.

There will definitely be 1 team of UW-associated people, possibly 2. Will confirm the 2nd team soon.

Hey, I'd like to get a clear idea of the number of teams, so, if you haven't already, please email me at danjpuma at gmail.com to confirm your number of teams. Also, I don't know how many free agents there are, but you guys should find teams.

I think we could use 1-2 extra teammates for the second UW team, so if you're interested please shoot me an e-mail.

Still an available free agent. Let me know if you want to play.

If I'm running the UK mirror of this in late May but haven't received the packets yet then I'm still eligible for this right?
If so, I'd like to play. I can do chemistry and fraud other science and myth, and owing to time difference I'll be basically useless after round 7.

When do you plan on starting? We'd appreciate a 9:30 eastern start time rather than 8:30 or 9:00 but can deal if necessary.

Actually, I would have to miss a few rounds of this (no more than 90 minutes at most) for my jazz band's practice. I'd still love to play but if Dan or my teammates veto it i won't object.

EDIT: This is no longer an issue. I should be able to make the whole shebang.

We'll start at 10 est. since so many of the teams are on central/pacific.

Thanks to Naveed, Saajid, Evan, and the not-quite-namesake-of-minor-apoptotic-pathway Dan PUMA for reading!

And for the editors of the set for putting it together! I enjoyed it.

As much as I would like those 3 powers, our team's individual stats for R3 (vs UW A) seem to have been switched.

Thanks again for putting this on, Dan. I really appreciate the chance to play.
