I just registered a team of three players, so we'll need at least one free agent, possibly two if one of our players drops.

The first person who posts in here saying they will be willing to write our science will get our last spot. Right now nobody on our team has a prayer of even producing those questions. If you also aren't going to CO and just want to donate some science questions you have sitting around, we'll take those too. Email me at charlie16@gmail.com.

Just wanted to mention that we're definitely looking for someone with science and/or music knowledge who would like to help us write something like 3/3 science & 1/1 music. In fact, if said person does that, I think we'd be fine with taking the remaining 2/2 that person would normally have to write out of sheer gratitude.

I am late getting on this but I am interested in playing and looking for a team if there are any with open slots still remaining.

Hey is anyone planning on driving back near the O'Hare area on Sunday evening? My return flight is at 8:25 PM on Sunday. This should give me enough time to play the trash tournament, but I'd need to leave after that ends. Ahmad, my ride for the rest of the events, will be playing the Fine Arts tournament so he won't be able to give me a ride.

If anyone who lives near the Gurnee/Libertyville area needs a ride and is participating in some shape or form at CO and CO Lit on Saturday and CO Trash on Sunday, let me know via email and I can probably provide a ride. I will likely leave my house at 7:00 AM both days and hope that I don't see the traffic I usually do every time I go into the city.
