I agree that the decision to start was probably late, and not fair as there probably wasn't enough time for some people to enter. However I think starting today was the correct decision had it been made earlier.

Suicide Tennis isn't all that organized, there is a suicide tennis board but we are never used for any decisions because there are rarely any but we need to make our minds up about this always a monday start crap, and it needs to be done earlier than the day before an event starts.

I started a thread in the Suicide Tennis with a poll about which events should not start on Monday. Hopefully we can get this sorted out

I would also like to add that there's not much we can do about this now, we can't really just forget today for a couple people who missed, most of us picked anyway, but yeah it's unfortunate if some didn't pick because they though it would start Monday

i agree. starting on monday regardless of the circumstances isn't very sensible, and i'd agree that olympics suicide should start on the friday. its just the late notice that i find rather strange.
