Hi, Gary. I think you'll have to sign up for Tournament #5, Carlos Cetina already won #4. 

Do we have any interest in a tournament? I wouldn't mind playing in one, if the time controls aren't too tight. We could, if there weren't a very large number of entrants, use the simple control of giving several months of reserve time, and no other time at all, then start all games at once. This would guarantee an end to the tourney in the set time of twice the number of months given as reserve. I gave 5 months for the last little one I ran, and it was completed in 10 months, even though one game had to time out before it was over. I completed all my games, although I took almost 2 months off at the beginning of the tourney because all the rest of life intervened then, and I did not really feel time pressure. 

That's just one suggestion. Any time controls that are flexible enough would be fine for me. I really would not like to drop out of another tournament because I couldn't manage the time controls.
