I'll sign up as a newbie if there's still room. What the hey, YOLO and all.

So I cannot sign up for the league as I can’t commit to any playing time early in the year. However, I will be following the league (both divisions this time) and with any luck you will see me volunteering as a reserve later this year.

Like jay, I'm thinking I'll also volunteer as a sub later in the year. I sadly don't have time to start another game now, plus committing to 4 games in advance is a lot for me. Once again Custer will laugh, however I nearly burnt out last year!

:lol: now! I have 4 games going.

I hope its not due to some physical ailment. I'm trying to be kinder and gentler this year.

But, I couldn't help notice you're from California.

I'd be happy to have you as a sub as well. It's my intention to set a baseline Standard Game Rating for subs to be placed in Division 1 vs Division 2. I'm not going to hold up games from starting to do it but I think this is better for the quality of the league over first come first serve substitutes. The rough estimate is >1200 rating for D1 subs. (You can earn your way into D1 with a lower ranking of course)

Haha, my ailment is a very demanding full time job plus two very young kids. I take it you’re probably retired and without toddlers in the house? But even if it wasn’t for that, I find that keeping the number of concurrent games to 2-3 means you can do much better in the games that you play, as it allows you to really focus. I may not play many games at the same time, but I put a ton of effort in the few games that I have going. You should try playing fewer games at some point to see if it’d improve your performance at all! It’s not about quantity, but quality!

The other challenge with the PDL is the lack of breaks. Occasionally after a tough game I like taking a couple of weeks off to clear my mind. That’s not an option in PDL, except from the one rather long break that everyone gets. I prefer many smaller breaks than a single long one.

I’m not from California btw, but I live here. From Greece originally, been in the states for over a decade, about half in Boston and another half in LA. I do think LA is the coolest city in the US however :D

That’s a pretty high bar! But yeah, if you don’t have enough players over the bar, you can always just sort the players you have by rank and assign to the D1 games the top ones.
