OPTIONAL Sign-up for Games

We have a loyal base of players, so we will not be cancelling any games for lack of players.  Sign up for games is totally optional.

In the event of an emergency cancellation, we will send an E-mail to our members, but will personally contact all those who choose to sign up for the game.  We expect this to be a rare occurrence!
