I would love to join. My dilemma is that my plane lands at 4:30....

think, think, think.

Ok. I'm going to try and figure out the hotel shuttle. Unless someone has a vehicle serving as a shuttle!

I want to, but my plane lands @ 4:30 (4:33pm, to be precise)!

How about I sign up, have a nominee draft for me, and I should be there in time to play the games? :P

I need a bye.
EDIT: Scratch this.

It would be helpful if people posting interest post if they need the bye or not (including people above, can go back and edit, or can make a new post).

If too many people need byes, and it only awards 2 (so that obviously a bunch of people playing in it will need to play in another event), I propose we start a second cube event one hour later, at 5:30 (or 6), running simultaneously. Tim and I can play in it then (since we get in right around the time of this event). If we don't have enough current cubes, it can be a legacy cube format!

If the people playing in this are playing for fun/to warm up and already have byes, then no need. But that data would be helpful.

Joe - see Schoenthal's post in the Q&A thread. Since you are living outside the states, you do not need a bye.

If you don't have enough for cube is there a chance to postpone the start time to 6 pm?

Walseth will be running this event, so its up to his discretion. I don't think there's anything wrong with waiting for a few others to arrive before starting though, especially if there are just 4 people. The important thing is to finish by 9 so people can play in sealed if they want.

Definitely off topic, but do you have opinions on Clockwerks Brewing and Northbound Smokehouse Brewpub?

I want to play in the sealed. My flight gets in at 8:45 so it would be nice if the sealed events started a little after 9.
