    Please mark me as tentative on May 22. So, an alternate standby is appreciated.


  2. Jim O'Kelley

    Sam’s game on June 12 is full. We’re now looking for standbys.

  3. Matt Sundstrom

    If it helps to know, my house is not far from the Glenview Metra station. Trains leave from Union Station and stop at several points on the northwest side.

  4. Tony Prokes

    Please mark me as a second tentative for the 22nd.

  5. Samuel Bassett

    I’d be interested in the two May house games, if no one else hops in.

  6. Jim O'Kelley

    Looks like we’ve filled them all, although some are tentative and others may be willing to drop, so speak up if you want to stand by.

  7. Jim O'Kelley

    Amanda had to drop from the May 22 game due to a work conflict. Anyone want to step in?

  8. Jeffrey Wood

    I’ll step in for the May 22nd game in Glenview.

  9. Thom Comstock

    It looks unlikely that I can play on May 22 . . . can’t get the knife out of my back.

    Family comes first.

  10. Jim O'Kelley

    Peter had to bail on the June 12 game. Who wants in?
