That's why we have started so early in the past at times. If we have no one deployed we do a live online draft after the 3rd preseason game like every other league, but that's only happened three times. The other five times we have done a E-mail draft which can take up to a month with a 12 hour clock for those stateside and an unlimited (though in the past we have made a pick for a guy after waiting four days) clock for anyone deployed.
This will be our first live in person draft since the original one in 2003.
We actually haven't decided completely on the venue for the draft. Five of us are staying downtown and have talked about just doing it in my suite (the Mrs is going with) and a few of the guys are staying on the strip (Cosmopolatin), while yet a few others are staying at the camp ground on Nellis AFB.
