Re: Mike Fowler

I had read this long ago but just never replied. I enjoyed meeting Mike, as well as the rest of the Brits. He taught me the difference in British mustard and American mustard. He is also the reason Martyn and Dave P thought they had been stranded at the Grapevine Mills mall waiting for us. I couldn'...

Re: VEGAS IN MARCH

Check Google maps to make sure you are as close as you think. MGM and Tropicana are about a mile from the Flamingo. Not that bad a walk, but not across the street either.

Re: Ranking in US

Dave, this is exactly what needs to be done. We have a limited window to view the UK players and I'm sure it would be appreciated. It's important that a fair minded individual check these with an eye for protecting the true amateurs. If you can provide any insight for any of the European players, I'...

Re: VEGAS IN MARCH

Best one is £700 approx for a direct flight with BA staying at the tropicana which has just been refurbished and is next to the flamingo wher ethe event is. Dave, it's a pretty good walk from Tropicana to the Flamingo. (unless they've moved them) You won't be able to run to the room between matches.

Re: Anyone with a youtube account...

OK Hamster, you've had your fun. Now step back and look at the bigger picture. Here's a kid who obviously likes to play that you may have shamed into quitting. I hope not, because we need all the players we can get. I would be willing to bet he's catching hell from some of his locals too. Here's a s...

Re: Tornado WCS - Dallas, USA

Yes, unless you are willing to write the tournament director and ask to be made an amateur.

We have new rope and gallows are being constructed as we speak.

By the way, Z, the invite extends to you also. As for Cath, I'm not sure our little burg is prepared... or ever could be.

Re: Tornado WCS - Dallas, USA

Is it going to be held downtown now? Martyn, I believe it will be at the Grapevine Hilton. Walking distance from the mall where I abandoned you and Dave P. :lol: Most importantly, It's NOT on the airport grounds so you're not a captive audience. And if you want to come a little early or stay a few ...

OK, Brits. I found a job for one of you in case you're unemployed or just have a need for additional income. Sounds like the perfect job for Rob D.

I wouldn't send in a deposit or give them your credit card number if they ask.

Re: Tornado Hall of Fame Classic - Vegas - 11-15 March

Alex, don't take it so hard. I think most understood why you took the stance you did. Tornado was too slow in getting the info out in a timely manner for international players. The one I'm disappointed in is Mase. Here we get the crowd worked into a frenzy...ropes looped over branches...bonfires and...

Dave, glad to hear you're coming.  But, if you had intentions of taking over Martyn and Rob's appointments, it's too late.  I've already canceled them and the owner has loaded the girls on the trailer and returned them to the barn. I am looking forward to having a beer with you and meeting/corruptin...

Gathering from the various posts, am I to assume neither of you are coming to Vegas this year?

Should I cancel your appointments with the "dancing" :roll:  girls?
