WNL Fall 2001

	Fellow Netrek players, the roster submission form and players
seeking teams forms are now open for submission for the Fall 2001 season
of the World Netrek League.  The roster submission form will remain
open for approximately three weeks, closing at midnight on Sunday,
September 23rd.  The schedule will be announced by September 26th and
teams can expect to play their first game either Sunday, September 30th
or Tuesday, October 2nd.  The players seeking teams form will remain
active until midnight on November 11, 2001.
	Some issues which will be addressed by the captains prior to
starting the WNL will be:
  1) Type of scoring system used;
  2) Whether forfeits are applied to rating determination or playoff
rankings; and
  3) Who will replace Dave Ahn as an Organizer
	The WNL can be reached at <URL:http://www.netrek.org/wnl/>.
As we have done the last two seasons, players seeking teams can sign-up
at the above url and if there are enough players without teams, then we
will create a team so that everyone can enjoy the WNL experience.
	This season we are happy to announce the addition of Gerald Lim
as the official WNL sTaTbOy.  In addition to team ratings, which the
WNL has always provided, we will begin to rate individual players in a
number of ways based on game results.  As such, we encourage people to use
a single nickname throughout the season.  Look for the WNL page to begin
featuring extensive stats for player comparisons in the near future!
