This group break will be conducted using a draft. That means, once we get five people wanting to be on this break, I will enter all names into a randomizer and it will pick the draft order. First name gets pick 1, 6, 11 and second name gets pick 2, 7, 12, and so forth...

Once the list is created, members can then trade their spot to another member over the next 24 hours. After that time has passed, all members are locked into their pick position. Once you post interest in the break, you cannot back out because you are not happy with the pick you end up.

Once the picks are locked, I will proceed with the break after the box has arrived. Hopefully, I can do it via video break. I will post the break here, along with scans if necessary.

To get in on this group break, you just need to reply to this thread stating that you are in.

Here's the random order:


09-24-2008, 12:37 PM
not too shabby, so is it set that i owe $60, or is that determined at the end of the day by who has 1...2....3..etc

09-24-2008, 01:42 PM
Oh trucker we got hosed! Go figure! Anyone intersted in trading spots?

09-24-2008, 02:45 PM
i think i am going to stand pat at #2...but i am willing to listen to offers... forte stuff helps :)

09-24-2008, 08:32 PM
I knew it, I notice a pattern that if you are one of the first to respond and you get copy/pasted in that order, 95% of the time you're not making top 2 in the randomizer.

Oh well, take it like a man. Good luck to all.

09-24-2008, 08:40 PM
Actually...I don't copy and paste the list all the time...I mix up how I enter the names into the randomizer to avoid patterns...

09-24-2008, 08:42 PM
Not a big deal, I'm not the one to complain too much, I take good with bad :)
