    2012 ppo ff league - draft date/time set

    All - the 2012 PPO FF League drafts will be held NEXT WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 29th at 6:00PM CDT.

    My apologies if this does not work with your schedule, and my apologies to those overseas members. Just gotta pick a time and go with it.

    No, they are not - because the next weekend is Labor Day and lots of people can't make drafts then. Can't please everyone.

    Found and posting this link to world time zones. I noticed already that the closest one, clickable, for CDT is in Madison, Wisconson. Madison, I believe, is the same time zone, CDT, as would be Minnesota. For myself, it has a click link to NYC, USA, which works out to be one hour ahead of Madison/or/ Minnesota. NYC is EST Zone.
    For our dear friend the Purple Banana, who I believe is still in Spain and drafts with us, it's a cool 7 hour difference, ahead of us. if living in Madrid. So if Zeus was drafting at 6:00 PM CDT in Minny, the Purple Banana will be drafting at 1:00AM midnight,, because he is 7 hours ahead of CDT in the USA there in Madrid, Spain time zone.....

    Hope this time zone maps helps all involved, espeicaly our overseas brothers....

    Here's the Link: World Time Clock & Map - Check Current Local Time Around the World

    Enjoy,

    It is GMT-5! So for example 6pm CDT would be 11pm for the UK and everybody in the same timezone of the UK. For Belgium ( me ) it's gmt +1 so it's 6 hours difference meaning 12! But I can do next week anytime of any night!

    I put it at 6pm CDT so as to be as sensitive to as many people as possible. I've put drafts on Friday nights and got complaints. I've put drafts on Saturday afternoons and got complaints.

    Honestly - if you take the time to set up a pre-draft order - and set up your preferences on the draft orders - things will work out if you can't make the live draft. The waivers start at 3AM CDT following the drafts, so you can make changes almost immediately.
