Registration is turned off in advance of the start of Homerathon. We will have the signup sheet at the event.

Date: Thursday, April 24, 2014.
Same place: The U.C. Mall area.
Same Time: 7 am - 10:30 pm (approx.)

This is a list of the parts of the Homerathon. Each part is about a fifteen minute reading. We will provide you with a script, which you can pick up before the Homerathon in the Philosophy and Humanities Office, 305 Carlisle Hall. The line numbers below are taken from the translation. You are encouraged to show up for Homerathon before your time to read in case we are ahead of schedule or if you would like some pointers on pronunciation (mostly, be consistent). Because the Homerathon runs on a tight schedule, if you are late, someone will go ahead and start reading at the scheduled time.

REGISTRATION STEPS:

  1. Click the box next to the part or parts that you want to read.
  2. Fill out your name, initials and a phone number at which we may reach you at the bottom of the page
  3. Click the Sign Me Up! button to finish the process.
  4. NOTE: If two people sign up for the same part at the same time, the person whose request is handled first will be awarded the part. Check the signup page to make sure that you received the parts that you wanted.
  5. If you would like to subsequently free up one or more parts, please contact Jim Perry (perry@uta.edu) for assistance.

Be aware: If you are signing up for a part towards the end of the final block (7:00 - 10:30 pm), please try to arrive early. In the years past, we have completed the Homerathon by a little after 10 pm so try to arrive at least twenty minutes early.
