    I would like to sign up for (wait for it) every single game!

  2. Peter Yeargin

    add me to Ted’s game, but I’m more than happy to step aside on that one. There is a chance I won’t be able to play, so get a standby at least.

  3. John G

    Tip off at Dan’s, and Lokken of the Irish. And if we see the other two fill up, I would be willing to host.

  4. Ted McClelland

    At the host’s insistence, I will sign up for the March 5 game.

  5. Aashirwad Viswanathan Anand

    I’m going to have to withdraw from the March 5 game. I just got an all-expenses paid trip to San Francisco and I think I’ll take it, and also escape the wrath of John Gramila for the stab from our last game together! Lol

  6. Tony Prokes

    I’ll take Aash’s place for the March 5th game at Dan’s house. Hopefully I won’t have to take John’s wrath though. -Tony

  7. Jim O'Kelley

    Whoops. I meant to give Tony a thumb’s up, not a thumb’s down, for stepping in for Aash.

  8. Peter Yeargin

    I’m out for Ted’s. Looks like I’ll still be out of town. I removed myself from the game.

  9. Nate Cockerill

    My brother’s 30th Birthday and Grandmother’s 81st are the weekend of the 13th and I’ll be travelling to Ohio for the collective party. So I will miss Ted’s game on the 12th.

  10. Matt Sundstrom

    I might be able to make Dan’s this Saturday. Need to tweak a couple things. Dan-if you wanted to play, let me know and I won’t try to rearrange my schedule. Otherwise, I should know tomorrow.

  11. Aashirwad Viswanathan Anand

    Three Peters on Saturday’s game – let the chaos begin.
