Heyas, Fellas!  In uncharacteristic fashion, I will keep it short here...  What do we want to do for this year's draft?  Early, like mid-August, or late, like around Labor Day weekend, or somewhere in between?  Feel free to just start throwing out dates!  Barring anything unforeseen and unlikely happening, pretty much any weekend as well as Labor Day Monday works for me.  How about you???

I am dropping off my oldest at college for her first year August 23/24/25. I could draft on Aug 25 on the drive back, but Saturday 24 would be pretty tough for me. Sorry to be the one throwing wrenches!

Labor Day weekend is good.

Hey guys,
 
The weekends of August 3 and 10th are bad for me.
 
Also, later the better.  
 
I could probably make Labor Day weekend work, just let me know which day.

If we roll Labor Day weekend, which seems to be the way things are trending (again), I would prefer to avoid Labor Day, Monday, and roll on either Saturday or Sunday, or since you all back on the east coast are looking at a start time of no earlier than 5:00 p.m. (11:00 a.m. my time) anyway, even Friday.  Bottom line, I would like to have at least one full day after the meeting and draft to get everything with the website updated and ready heading into Week 1.

Again, coming in here to apologize. Forgot I am out Fri Aug 30 and Sat Sept 1 due to 20th wedding anniversary. She will flay me so no way I can modify.  
 
Sunday is open for sure but if you draft Friday or Sat, I will write down multiple picks early and make sure I’m not a detriment to the draft. Sorry to be the headache.

Well, the chiming in has seemed to die down...  SO, I think it is time to get the date for our 2019 "conference-call/online" Summer Meeting & Draft set in accordance with what was trending...
 
The 2019 GBRFL Summer Meeting & Draft will be held via conference call and then here on "the Gridiron" on Sunday, September 1st starting at 5:00-ish (ET)!!!
 
That means that protections will be due by 11:59 p.m. (ET) on Sunday, August 25th.  Here is the thread to do that on: http://www.fantasyfootballer.com/cgi-bin/theGridiron/YaBB.cgi?board=53;a ction=display;num=1564348785.
 
Assuming there are no major, legitimate objections, that leaves just one pending matter: the scheduling of the Draft Lottery.  It really does not matter when we do it.  I know people have their "strategic" preferences and of course people's schedules are a consideration, but in theory it could be conducted anytime between now and draft day.  That said, the lottery conference call allows us to at least kick off discussion of matters that we want to take up on draft day, so we should try to schedule the lottery for a time that maximizes the chances of full participation.  So, does anybody want to express any preference as to when we conduct the Draft Lottery?  Let's get to it!

No hidden agenda, I have a vested interest in conducting the draft as soon as possible.  I could make myself available any evening except July 31st, August 7th, and August 8th.   I am vacation the week of Aug 10-17 but I could probably call in for a quick call.  (I am at the mercy of my family)

You meant to say "draft lottery", right, Steve?  (Just do not want the discussion to backslide...)

Draft Lottery: I could do this coming weekend sometime, I'm flexible.
 
I'm also available pretty much any evening moving forward except the week of 8/10-17/2019, as I will be on vacation also.

Since the response has been paltry to this point, let's give the guys a couple more days heading into the weekend here to chime in.  We will get this scheduled by the end of the weekend.

I am free most any time for the draft lottery.
 
I, too, prefer having several weeks between the lottery and the draft.

These conflict...
 
Frank, are you ONLY good any evening the weekend RIGHT BEFORE the draft?  Or, are you good in the evening any weekend before the draft?  Do you, indeed, have a preference, opposite the usual, for having it LATE, closer to Draft Day???
