Yahoo bounced this when I sent it from my tournament email, so here it is
from the one they know.
Apologies to those on all three lists.
You do not have to be in the tournament to volunteer your help.
>From: "Empire" <empiredeluxe@...>
>Subject: Tournament starts next week - help solicited
>Date: Sun, 1 Dec 2002 20:46:31 -0800
>I have 57 people signed up for the 2003 tournament. 28 who played in Sir
>Launcelot's completed tournaments, 5 who played in other tournaments
>(including last years incompleted tournament), and 34 who are new to
>tournament play. Looks like a good group, but there is room for more.
>If you are planning to play, but are not listed... let me know.
>I have decided I could use some help. I am going to use two scenarios per
>round. That way I can play and I can also have someone else play more than
>one game in a round if needed (for late starters or some mishap). I will
>produce one scenario and start those games for each round. I could use
>several volunteers - up to 12 to spread the work around. Someone to create
>the second scenario for each round, and someone to start those games for
>each round. Let me know if you want to help!
>I have created my first round scenario. It is a 60x80 map. For you
>potential cartographers out there: I used the mirror utility to make sure
>that is is balanced, but then altered it some so that the two sides are NOT
>identical. Player 1 is the Game Controller. Players 2 and 3 are the real
>players. Players 4 and 5 are computers with their efficiency set to 1%.
>I have posted tentative first round match-ups at
>http://home.attbi.com/~empiredeluxe/Round1.htm. It looks like there will
>an experienced player to give each of the newcomers a lesson on tournament
>play. This is NOT a knockout, so if you get blown away, you can look
>forward to putting the lesson to good use against another newcomer in the
>I have used first names for those who do not have a handle. If you want to
>be addressed in another way please let me know.
