Yes, it's a 14-unit superskirmish. BECAUSE THIS SUPERSKIRMISH GOES TO 14!!! (Like the FAWM t-shirt. See what I did there?)
It is NOT recommended to do all 14 SS sections in one go without sleep or meals. Pick and choose. It should work out fairly for most time zones.

Please sign up to host a slot or two-- without hosts, it won't happen!
(you don't have to use this format)

*When you have finished your song, share the link in this thread.
It is part of the fun and the etiquette to listen to other participants songs.
Although the skirmish is set for an hour, if you are late or run over you
can still join in, there are no skirmish police! Smile

Have fun!

Thanks for doin' this. I'll take E please.

I'll host F! (I think that CDT should be 10pm and not 6pm)

H i or j. Whatever suits.

I can take C and N which will make Cripps Nadia Smile

I can take G and/or K.

If you get near the time and you are short a host i will take another as long as its not a silly time AEST.

Doing well so far! I'll keep your suggestions in mind, yam and coolparadiso. Smile

I'm going to try participating in all of them, though some will be late due to scheduling conflicts. Alas, this means committing to listening and commenting to the whole skirmish, but that's part of the fun! Smile

D: ss092818d?

I look forward to trying to do as many as possible- i will come in late for the first two! It often means Yam and I end up as as duo but we still have fun! Smile

One week to go! Still need a handful of hosts. @Jibbidy34-- you in?

I just got a great price on weekend passes to the local Roots N Blues N BBQ festival next weekend. I'll participate as I can and if there is an open slot that will work with my new schedule I'll be more than happy to host. But it'll be a wait and see thing for at least a few more days.

Oops... just realised it is midnight in the U.K., and I’ll be in bed for a 4.30 in the morning start!

@marvsmooth Can I move you to a different timeslot?

How about H - 8am in the UK?


I should be able to do B - Is that Friday at 2pm Central? I'm scheduled off that day, so....

Also a maybe for L - 10am central Saturday. But if someone fills it up I'm cool with that.

Alex, it looks like M and N should be 29 not 28. Ie M: ss092918m instead of M: ss092818m

Can I have F?

B is Friday, 2 pm. It's yours, TC.
Thanks for corrections.
F is John's already, Cindy. You can have D or G or J or L or M...

Will be home all weekend with company including extensive team toddler sitting. I can be on standby to host on short notice if there are still any remaining empty slots on Friday.

@AndyGetch can I call on you for D?
@yam655 You get G as well!
@coolparadiso I'll give you J as well!

I've assigned myself 2 slots on Saturday am but if anyone wants them, I'll gladly hand off.

@metalfoot thanks for organizing! The 'D' thread is posted. I'm also happy to host 'M' if it is helpful.

Sure, Andy. You can take M.

Dear British friends,
I realize now that my initial terminology was incorrect. GMT is not during Daylight Savings. You're during British Summer Time at the moment. All times have been updated to read BST now. Because I'm an idiot, but I do learn from my mistakes.

THANKS EVERYONE for making this superskirmish a success!

Thanks for organising Mate! Im pretty tired - but when i sift through i will have a few good songs! glad i could do all 14. Thx to all the other prompters as well!

It was lots of fun!! Smile
