What's all this talk about zetlag? Mabey because to Greece over the summer and i have to overcome a 7hr time difference my definition of jetlag has a differnt meaning than yours. The One hour difference between NY and IL is nothing to me. I"m sure you are going to be fine. Now the West coast and especially hawaii and alaska are going to have a bigger problem.

i would agree a one hour time differental will do absolutely nothing
yeah trust me. You will be perfectly normal.
Oh yeah. There are far worse jetlags than a one-hour difference. (Trust me... Minnesota to the Philippines. Think going to bed at 8 in the morning.)

That would be really fun. But I don't know how good my team is- we've never really played but I don't think we are very good.

Also, if we did do east vs. west, where would we divide it??? texas is smack dab in the middle so....

Ultimate frisbee is the most amazing sport ever, I destroy at it. How would east and west be defined?

For me, one hour can throw you off a little bit, but it doesn't really matter. It's like Daylight Savings Time, no different than that.
East and West of the Mississippi? We could also just say everyone in the Central and Eastern timzones vs Western, Mountain, Hawaii, and Alaskan Timezones.

That would be good to divide up by time zones- but there's a lot of people in the central time zone...

Little lopsided, lots of people in Central and Eastern but few in the other 4. Maybe Coasts vs. Mountain and Central or West+Central Vs East+Mountain

Champaign is...2.5 hours from Chicago, IL
actually, it took me about three hours (on low traffic and no stops) and where i live is closer than chicago is, so from chicago i'd say around 3.5 hours, varying with traffic.

No, I don't think it would take 3.5 hours. I've been down there quite a few times as we have family friends, and from Grand Rapids it takes like 3 hours. I think 2.5, maybe 2.75 hours is what it'll take.

Ya know, we could have a Student Forum Ultimate Open. Just pick like 8 captains who are going to nats and then have them choose their teams in Illinois. Then we could call people by their usernames instead of real names...haha I'm awful at real names.
Call me coach.
