Well, since there's 3 or 4 current Drafts about to end, I figured it was a good time to start this one. We'll go 15 Rounds with a drafting order of 1-8, 8-1. Naturally, I'll be choosing first. That leaves 7 open spots, so sign up if your interested!

I'd like to, but 120 westerns is quite a few too many, imho.

Erik - I agree with John. I'm having problems coming up with a master list of 120 Westerns. I'm afraid I'll run out of gas before I can list 15 films.

It is your draft, of course, Posted Image but I would suggest dropping the rounds to 10 to keep the quality of the films up in this draft.

John, 15 rounds isn't set in stone. We can drop it down to 12 easily. It's up to you guys. 12 or 15? Please specify your preference and I'll make a decision once there's enough feedback....

In the meantime, there are a few spots open, so sign up folks!

That's an excellent point Walter, and now that I look at it from that perspective, 10 rounds is perfect. If no one objects, I'll make it official once the remaing spots are filled.

Okay the remaining spots went to Scott, Jim, John, and Rand. Angelo you missed the last spot by one minute, sorry man. If you start a Kung-Fu Draft, I'll definitely participate.

The Draft will be 10 Rounds with a 12 hr time limit for selections. If you know your not going to be around when your turn is near, feel free to email me your selection(s). The Draft order is as follows:


ErikG
Walter Kittel
Justin Doring
george kaplan
Scott Weinberg
Jim_K
John Dhein
Rand


Alright, lets get started...

With my first selection, I'll take:


For Three Men The Civil War Wasn't Hell. It Was Practice!....



The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly

Yeah, I sort of thought that The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly might go first in this draft. Fortunately my selection is tied with that film as my all time favorite Western -

Once Upon A Time In The West a.k.a. C'era una volta il West

I tend to flip flop back and forth on these two Westerns.
