Sure I'll take a round. But it can't be the first few, and it can't be over later than 18th Sept, since I go on vacation then. Can I snag like Round 4?

Also, your dates are all off by a few days.

Actually 2nd Sep is really not a good day for me (anniversary), so can I take Round 3 for Saturday 30 Aug?

I'd like to host a round please, Tuesday the 9th? I'm pretty flexible though, if anyone particularly wants that date, then I can do any days except Saturdays from the 9th onwards. :)

Should we really do it this way? Choose our dates I mean? The Nunis can get away with it because she is the Queen, but I think I'll plug everyone else in randomly and if there's a conflict or people want to trade there will be time to resolve those issues. Travis, I'll make sure you get a date after the 9th that isn't a Saturday.


Sorry- It's probably my fault for putting all the dates in now. I was just trying to save myself a little work later. :oops:

Alright, I figured out my round and should easily have it ready in time. If some of you are worried that you'll be put first and it's holding you back from signing up... don't worry, I'll go first. Let's get a bunch of us in this. :D

Sign me up for a round. I'll try and make something during my deadtime this week so I'll be ready for any of them.
