Here are the schedules for the Spring 2001 WNL Season.  We
appologize for the delay, but assure you that the subsequent seasons will
benefit from the time devoted to automate the entire procedure!
	Note that all games are at *FIXED* times, dates and servers, but
that captains have the flexibility of moving game times or servers if
agreed to by *both* captains.  This season, two weeks are being given for
each game to be played, so hopefully this flexibility will cut down on
missed games.
	While there is no "Players Seeking Team" team, as was formed last
year, we still encourage people who have NOT joined up to sign up at since players may be added up until the middle of
the season (i.e. trade deadline).
	The trade deadline for this season will be midnight eastern 
time, 6/9/01.
	The server information are:

twink -> -p 4566 (4000) / 4577 (5000)
netrek -> -p 4566 (4000) / 4577 (5000)

  The WNL rulebook is available at :
  See the WNL rulebook for starting times of games based on whether a team
has a designation of European, Pacific, or Eastern.
  See the WNL rulebook for altnerative servers in case of network or
server problems.
  Games can be played at any time during the 13 day bi-week.  The games
are auto-scheduled for the first Sunday or Tuesday of the bi-week and one
should make every attempt to play on that date.
  Captains can agree to any server as long as it is running the latest WNL
source.  This is available from: which includes
directions on installing and running the server.
  Captains are reminded that games should start by 15 minutes after the
designated game time to avoid forfiets.  Captains can ask for an
additional 15 minutes, but the opposing captain must agree.  Please be
polite about these requests, both in asking and granting.  See the
rulebook section on delayed games and the procedure required to obtain a
forfiet in such a case ( see rule 6f)
