Somewhere around an hour and 40 minutes for men. There are still open spots available for women.

Probably harder this year, there are fewer spots available! Be ready to race :)

I literally clicked register at 11:30am, checked the box to stat keep, and it told me it was already full. It was still 11:30am hahaha.

I clicked a few seconds after 11:30, got in. Don't know what happened at 11:00.

At 10:59 the site was getting really slow - 15+ second page load times. I got in at 11(!), hit the checkout page before 11:01, by the time my payment went through, I saw that the description and signup time had been changed to 11:30. But the system says I'm registered! :shock:

I doubt I'm the only one who had this experience (ps please don't cancel my signup)

I was pressing refresh contantly from 10:55 all the way to 11:30
I signed up as soon as the the register link appeared and not 5 seconds went by before I was told it was full and I'm on the waiting list.

Is there any way that there can be a sub list instead of a waiting list.
I know a lot of players play 2-3 games every week filling up spots and I think having a sub would be a better compromise in my opinion.

Ridiculous. I was in on the register page at 11:00:01 and then it kicked me out. Tried again at 11:30 on the nose and system said already full and on the wait list.

At least make the sign up in the evenings so I don't miss meetings just to be wait-listed.

When do they decide whether there will be enough women to keep the league at 3:3?

I think that TUC's heart was in the right place when they thought they might even it up, but given that the men's registration didn't last a minute and there aren't enough women, it seems logical to switch back to 4:2.

Yeah, something definitely sounds out of whack here. I registered at 11:30 on the dot and was waitlisted, like several of the people here. How could it have taken 1 hour and 40 mins to fill up for men?

I get that there's no perfect way of handling registration when the demand outstrips the supply by so much, but given that this was supposed to be 'first come first served' is it possible to review the registration/waitlist time stamps to ensure that this actually happened?

Also, is there any way to find out where we are on the waitlist?

There are more than enough women. The female spots filled up in under 3 days, and there are now some on the waiting list. Admittedly, more demand from men, but given that we've historically taken longer (sometimes, much longer) to fill less female spots, it seems that the women are loving the idea of 3:3.

The 1 hour and 40 minutes time was *last* fall's time. The registrations and waitlist have been checked, and first come first served did work here.
