We have about 4-5 different posts asking Americans, if they’ll come to Euro Worlds or not.
I will post this message in all these posts now, and hope to get the ball rolling.
Please enter your name in this list, if you’re not living in Europe, and are playing with the thought of coming to Euro Worlds:
I will proceed as follows:
1) Wait till the end of this month to see how many people are entering the list and are actually interested at all (regardless of date).
2) As a next step, I would ask those guys, if they prefer October or summer.
3) If it is a close call I might do a poll to include the already qualified Europeans.
There are currently only 5 guys on the list (Chris Gogolen, Jonny Chu, Cole Lepine, Mike Kessling, Jim Li), but I’m missing tons of other guys.
The following people had interest, but I’m still missing them on the list (thanks aermet69 for the help):
John Anderson, Michael Richards, Adam Howland, Brad Eier, and lots more.
We have talked to a lot more guys at Worlds who were at least interested in coming (Robbie Hendon, Jan and Chris Westergarde, Chris Schoenthal, Keith Brown, and others). Please let me know if I’m wrong, and also enter the list. There are more guys I remember talking to about Euro Worlds, but I’m not sure if they actually wanted to come or not.
I know some of you are reluctant to “commit” to write your name already, but you’re not committing to anything yet. If you have to win the lottery or rob a bank to make it, you’re probably really not right on the list. If it’s just mortal concerns (saving money, convincing ladies, getting free from work, summer or October), then we would love to hear from you.
