If you volunteer to play 3 times during the season, the total commitment would be approximately 6 hours or fewer.  
 
There is a scheduler that allows you to pick your most convenient times of the week.  So you can influence your scheduled game time but you won't always get your preferred times (if, for example, your opponent is in a distant time zone).  I can't find the link to the scheduler but I'll provide that as soon as possible.

 
Adanac said it correctly, but it's hard to imagine how difficult is it to be available on 60 two hour slots out of 119. So be prepared to plan corresponding weeks to allow (one) dynamic replanning.
 
... sorry to step into another's team discussion Smiley

Probably I wont be able to arrive to my game on Monday but most of my weekend is available, I already have sent a message to my opponent to see if we can reschedule.

Did you also get scheduled for a low-preference slot?  Nombril and I are both in the U.S. and somehow I got scheduled for a 4th-best preference!  I think the scheduler is malfunctioning, because I had lots of 1st-preference slots available, and because the 8:00pm Sunday slot used to be a high preference for me (e.g. in the World Championship) before I started going to bed a bit earlier.  That is to say, I expect the wrong set of preferences for me was used to pick my slot.

I'm on vacation this week, so had some very odd times in for my schedule.  8:00 was the first evening slot on the weekend I even had marked as available.
 
(It is a 4 for me as well, hopefully I'll be back in time! I'll be 2-1/2 hours from home, and will be getting on the road between 3 and 6 depending on how the wind is...)
 
I can play Monday night at 7:00 PM (central) if that is a better time and we are allowed to play a few hours after the scheduler window closes.

Welcome aboard, you're on the team!  The next games will be the week of August 24-28 and if you'd like to play you can let me know by personal message.  I'll be sending out an invitation to everyone on the team later this week.

I'm sending a message to the whole team this morning regarding our next match versus Europa.  For the people that are new to Arimaa, simply check the message hyperlink at the top of the screen.

We have 2 volunteers so far for next week's match against Europa.  There's about 2 days left to volunteer if you'd like to be the 3rd player.  Smiley

I could (re?)join and play next week. No guarantees of ability to play at live time control.

Yeah, I've been pretty rusty playing at real time instead of postal speeds.  Simon (or anyone else), let me know if you want to arrange for a warm up game!
