    Yes that is correct. You may however choose anything that is scheduled to open in the 2012 season. :-)

    One more day to go.

    UPDATED RULES. #11 is new
    Coaster Draft 2012 rules.
    1. All players will have 24 hours from the start of their pick. For example the player before you in the draft posts at 3:15pm on a Tuesday. You have until 3:15pm on Wednesday or your pick is forfeited. The first player can still pick after their expired time as long as the second player has not made their pick.
    2. You must post the name of the coaster you are choosing as well as the park it is located in. There are multiple coasters with the same name and we don’t want you to have a problem when picking. Please make sure you bold the coaster name and the park it is located in.
    3. If you are unable to make your upcoming draft pick due to vacation, sick, etc, please private message the draft coordinators (either Leo C or Antoine). With your number one pick and two other alternatives in case your first pick was chosen.
    4. The draft will begin on March 1st, 2012 at NOON EST.
    5. The draft order is determined by the outcome of the NFL Super bowl. If you do NOT send in your picks for the Super bowl halftime score and final score with winner, you will be automatically moved to the bottom of the list of participants.
    6. At the end of the draft, each participant must ADVERTISE their park via their blog on ThrillNetwork. We will make a thread where you can advertise your park. You may also create a link in your signature to advertise your park
    7. All participants in the draft MUST vote on the draft. If you do not vote, you may not win. You will have 1 week after the draft ends to advertise and vote on your parks.
    8. Draft trades may happen at any time. Both participants must post in the draft thread that they are trading and what they are trading. All trade proposals will done via PM and then announced in the draft thread.
    9. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask we will be glad to help. Leo, Antoine, and many of the senior staff have played in the draft before.
    10. You may choose ANY operating or under construction coaster in North America (USA, Canada, and Mexico) unless specified by the draft coordinators. This means anything scheduled to open in 2012 may be chosen for the lists.
    11. When a player misses two turns during the draft the player will be dismissed. A replacement player will inherit the coasters previously picked and will be able to make up the missed picks upon entering the draft based on the availability of rides at that moment.

    From now on comments, observations, and questions about this draft will move to another thread. http://www.thrillnetwork.com/pub-7/9...ns-thread.html
    This thread is closed off and now reserved for official game picks and announcements.

    Below this post it is expected the players of the draft are to post their pick when it is their turn. Trades could be announced on this board.

    Thank you Jeff!

    The St. Louis Rams, errrr, Vince has traded the 2nd overall pick, as well as the 30th overall pick, in the 2012 Coaster Draft to Daniel Barto in exchange for the 8th overall pick and the 22nd overall pick.

    Daniel, you can confirm, and you are now on the clock.

    Dearly beloved, we are gathered here on this wonderful day to wish this man and this coaster a happy marriage. They have been together for 11 years now and finally on this lovely March morning they are joined hand in hand. They have had their ups and downs but still they come out on top as number one. There were some close calls, but no one could shatter them. So today I announce you man and Nitro at Six Flags Great Adventure!

    The Kid (aka Shawn) is now on the clock.

    Announcement: Joe R. has requested to play. We have not concluded the first round and therefore lock out the field. After discussion he will be added to the last spot #15. Good luck. Guys please bold your selection and park. Thank You. The way I read the trade Vince should be up. Now back to the action in progress.

    It's okay, it's okay. El Toro has a great steel compliment.

    Lift hill soundtrack playing:

    ""Doesn't anyone notice this? It feels like I'm taking crazy pills!"

    "Didn't your dad ever teach you to LOOK! BEFORE! YOU LEAP!"

    "Say hello to my little friend!"

    "That just happened."

    "Bizarro, Bizarro, Bizarro #1!!!"

    I select the proven multi Golden Ticket winning Bizarro from Six Flags New England.

    Bizarro, Bizarro, Bizarro #1!!!

    It is my pleasure once again to announce the best SFOG tour guide is next. Racer take it away.

    Coasterkid_2006 time is currently up. Knottsnetwork now has until 1:15 AM EST March 8 to make their selection before Joe R. is up. Coasterkid_2006 can still make their pick if it is done before Knottsnetwork makes their own. Otherwise they forfeit a pick for this round.

    Knottsnetwork is on the clock.

    It has to be a North American coaster, unless Leo or Antoine approved it.

    I don't know what coaster was selected because the post was already edited, but only North American coasters. No exceptions. Tornbretto is still on the clock, but must choose something in North America.
