Yes, the only exception is if players were on the Fracas from Caracas. They're on standby until OSCL (Online Skype Champions' League) in the spring.

Bump since more than 3 people should be playing free quiz bowl in a semi-organized way at a time of the week when nothing else QB wise is going on.

Yup - at least for now. OSPL is going to get promoted at a number of tournaments in the next few weeks, so hold your horses just a little bit.

Bump, because we still have plenty of space in OSPL and Round 3 begins next Tuesday! This is open at this point to anyone who played in Round 1 or Round 2, except if you were on one of the two champion teams. Free quizbowl midweek! Play against great competition from around the country! Send me a private message or email at director at historybowl dot com if you want in!

Since I probably can't make the 8:15 slots, could you have every game that I participate in be in one of the last two?

Yes. We'll now be starting a week from this Tuesday (i.e. on Nov. 1). Please sign up! I am literally going to be contacting over a thousand schools this week to let them know about upcoming NHBB tournaments, and will mention OSPL in my emails.

Ben's on two teams :shock:

Also, is it possible to change the schedule so I have games in the 9:45 slot? (except the last one, there 7:15 is optimal)

Missed an Andrew Hart Grail today by the margin of bat guano.

edit: There's a mistake in the stats--we should have 350 bonus points this round, not 355.

Uh, any chance the mata-utu game could be moved to 9:45? I won't be able to make 9:00 due to band practice.

While we're on the topic of, I guess, 'rescheduling', would there be anyone opposed to perhaps putting the Peppers vs Spy Planes game to 8:45 on 11/29 (week 5)? I think Fisher has a taping that night in Columbus at 7pm, and I won't be able to get home by 8pm. I'll be able to confirm sooner, just putting it out there in advance in the event of.

Turns out I am not free for the rest of the evening after 6:30 PM EST. Is anyone on the Mutineers team and my team (Peppers) willing to reschedule this week's match from 8:15 EST to some earlier time than that?
