At this time, we have two drafts that didn’t run on schedule–I’m guessing traffic is bad in Florida too. The problem is that we don’t have any open slots, officially–Hawaii (tomorrow night, Bryce Paputa running at last word) took the last one when it moved from last Tuesday.
UNofficially, however, I anticipate the last week of drafts having some “open time” due to many of the lists for the districts only needing to be sent once.
So, here’s the proposal:
Hub City (12/15, draft runner stuck in traffic) moves to a date TBD. 3/night might be a bit much, but it wouldn’t be the first time. Or bump it to between Christmas and Kickoff.
Peachtree (12/17) is UP, but “inactive” as of this post. I propose that we treat that one as though it was opened early–pick if the slots ahead of you have picked, if James has a list he can put in the right teams–with a “run date” of 12/18. (As I was writing this, Ed did just that…)
Sorry about that I wish it was traffic, i can run a draft from my phone then, it was work not realizing you back up 6 months of work on a project on an external drive so that if your system goes down the night before the project is presented you still have everything available but yes I am running it as if tomorrow was the effective draft date
Couple of quick announcements, and then I’ll be putting up Ventura.
Tonight set a record for the MOST FF event drafts in one night, at 4 drafts. Drafts are still going, too, but we seem to be back on schedule. (James, if I catch you running a draft from your phone while driving, I’ll have to see if I can swipe a -infinity from Billfred for ya.)
We’ve got some waiver claims. I strongly suspect that there are more teams out there, but the policy is you see 'em, you claim 'em. If nobody wants a team, we’ll let them go.
Also to be noted with the waivers is that one of the teams is claimed to fill a hole. Filling a hole in the draft (either a team dropped out, or somehow was picked twice) is an automatic bump to the top of the waiver list if you make a claim to fill that hole, automatic award of the claim, and automatic drop to the bottom of the waiver list. (Or you can just claim a pool team, but sometimes those waiver teams are too good to pass up.)
The hole to be filled: The Daedalite InVAders inadvertently got 3959 twice in Bayou, and have claimed (and been awarded) 5778 to fill the hole in their third pick.

Oh, right, the deadline. I know it’s normally 5 days, but… I’m in a giving mood. Christmas Eve at end of drafts is the deadline(6 days), sneak one in before I manage to get around to cycling and it goes in the hopper too.
If something like this happens again, can we make it so that draft runners have to post this in their draft threads? I didn’t find this post til after the draft happened, and missed the draft. (I was hoping to live draft). That way it makes it more convenient and we don’t have to dig through posts of randomizings.
I don’t see it in the draft thread. If you did post it, I must’ve missed it. I just think that if we encounter a situation like that again, the draft runner should have a separate post in the thread saying that the draft will resume again tomorrow.
On further review–I didn’t notice that 5778 was already taken. Claim DENIED, InVAders will need to make another claim (or transfer an existing claim to that position). InVAders revert to slot #9 on the priority list–for now.

For reference, there will only be 3 regionals left after this one runs out, with a bunch of block drafts over the following week. And then… Kickoff.
Could use some lists–I’ve got Frog Farce and PureMI.
Speaking of lists/attendance, can I get an absentee report from the draft runners for the last 2-3 days, say back to the 18th, on who missed? Got one or two players that I think are cutting it a little close, just want to get some confirmation or denial.
Due to the game hint Live stream tomorrow I would really like to run as much of Silicon Valley Regional draft tonight as possible. Please send in your pick lists and make your picks when it is your turn. You still have until your time-slot tomorrow to make your pick but it would be nice to make them tonight
