I will add you with an unnamed team and if others sign up without a team, I will put them with you on a first come first serve basis if this is ok.

If you happen to get a team, let me know.

Welcome!

Ok, you are all in.

blockhead15, let me know when you get your team together.

mobmaster, I added you to the other singles player that had joined up.

Also, I have cut the number of teams to 16 since it appears as if getting 32 teams will take too long.

Thanks for all that have joined so far.
