    Hi all,

    Please select all options that you are available to draft. If you have a particular preference please leave a comment. Live drafts usually take no longer than 2 hours and last years was just over an hour from memory.

    The draft dates above will give everyone a couple of weeks before the season starts to check out their rosters and make use of the waiver wire if necessary.

    The draft will be a standard snake draft with the draft order being randomly determined just before the draft.

    If you have any feedback please post it.

    Have a show on Saturday and practice on Monday night.

    Sunday is the best shot for me!

    I like the earlier times on Saturday or Sunday best. The later in the day it is the longer I have to drive myself crazy doing too many mock drafts and further confusing myself for the real draft!:pound:

    The later on Sunday the better...The restaurant closes at 9, but am open all day so I may be able to sneak away here and there to participate if it's later. Thanks!

    IIRC it's along the beautifully wild shores of Lake Gitchigumi in God's Country...a place where pasty dough is still made with lard :)

    Yep, detteam has it right. Although we don't serve Pasty's, we are in the heart of Pasty country. He and I have had this conversation.

    I am part owner of a small restaurant in the Keweenaw. Only open in the summer, which gives me time for Fantasy Football in the winter, as well as basketball.

    [STRIKE]Sunday 28 August at 8pm ET[/STRIKE] it is! Thanks all for voting, hope to see you there.


    EDIT: Having just attempted to set the draft time in Yahoo, it seems there are no free draft slots for the Sunday (other than early morning).

    Therefore the next best time we can draft is Saturday 27 August at 8:30pm ET.

    Sorry if this causes any issues. I'm quite surprised by the lack of available draft slots from Yahoo considering it's nearly 2 weeks away. Ignore any messages about times in the league updates panel. Just click on 'My Team' and you'll see a countdown timer to the draft in your local time.

    Early Sunday morning would work better for me. No problem, I will make sure to have my draft order set up at the very least. I'll try and get a laptop going in the dining room so I can check back and fourth!

    Locstah showed interest in taking my spot. If he's still interested he can have it.

    I'm sorry guys. I'm miffed we couldn't choose the time we wanted. I've noted it for next year so we get in even earlier.


    Nemo, just log into the league and when the draft room is ready you will see a link to enter the draft. The draft room opens around 30 mins before the draft. I might put together a quick guide for the new guys.
