A reminder to all managers: Rosters must be submitted to me (megajester) either by email or forum message before 00:00 GMT tonight.
 
Please bear in mind that failing to field a player for a table results in immediate forfeit, whereas a fielded player can be substituted, provided the substitute ranks no more than 100 points above the original player. Also note that the ratings of the players who actually play, and not the players originally rostered, is deducted from your ratings budget.
 
All players who have been selected to play need to click here to register, and enter the times they are available on the scheduler.

    I thought it might be helpful to just remind everybody how rescheduling works this season:
     
    From the Rules, with important bits emphasized:
     
    7.1 If a player wishes to reschedule, he must contact his opponent. The opponent is under no obligation to agree to a rescheduling. A game must be played within 96 hours (4 days) of its originally-scheduled time.
     
    7.1.1 After players have privately agreed to reschedule the game, one of them must open a new thread in the "2011 Arimaa World League" section of the forum, stating that he and his opponent are rescheduling their official League game, providing the exact time. Once both players have clearly signalled their agreement in the thread, this game is considered the official game. The game advertised by the system in the gameroom is invalidated and is allowed to lapse.
     
    7.1.2 Players may repeat the procedure in 7.1.1 as many times as they wish if necessary. In every instance both players have the right to refuse a rescheduling.
     
    7.1.3 At the game time, the players must sign into the chatroom to prove they are present. One must issue a challenge to the other as the exact same color and with the exact same time controls as the scheduled game. He must state in the challenge that this is the official game.
     
    7.1.4 If the conditions under 7.1.3 are met the opponent is obligated to accept or else forfeit. However if these conditions are not met the opponent should not accept.
     
    7.1.5 Before clicking Start, both players must enter the chatroom and state the game number and that they accept it as the official game.
     
    7.1.6 If any of steps 7.1.1 to 7.1.5 are not carried out as required, the game may be disallowed subject to the discretion of the Director, resulting in a forfeit by either or both players depending on who is at fault.  
     
    (I'd just like to clarify that the purpose of 7.1.6 is as a way to solve problems if anybody is disadvantaged. The important thing is that the result is fair.)

    URGENT ANNOUNCEMENT
     
    The following players who have been rostered for this round were not registered, and therefore need to enter their preferred times into the scheduler within the next few hours:
     
    aerzinger
     
    arimaaphile
     
    cvic
     
    Hirocon
     
    knarl

     
    Here is the link: http://arimaa.com/arimaa/events/reg.cgi?e=2011awl
     
    It's also vitally important that each of these players contacts me to let me know they have entered their times, either by sending me a forum message or emailing me.
     
    It seems the registration link is somehow missing from the gameroom page. Please could somebody who can add the link to the Announcements section.
     
    Thank you for your help. Apologies for the oversight.

    Round 3 results are posted here.
     
    The Rockies are back in the game with a respectable 2-1 win over Europa, but the Ring of Fire have managed another hat-trick against the Atlantics, putting them 6 whole points clear of the nearest opposition.  
     
    Also I would like to announce (better late than never) that Nombril is our Player of the Round for Round 2! Anybody who can make a camel sacrifice like that and get away with it deserves a round of applause.
     
    So, who do you think deserves the prize in Round 3? Or did you spot anything worthy of the other trophies? Check out the Awards Discussion thread for more...
