I'm really sorry but I won't be attending this year.  I have too much to sort out with my PhD and not enough money.

I'm gutted I can't make it... :cry:

HOLY CRAP.  5O.

Be sure and bring your walking cane 'cause I'm not holding your hand while you walk around the place. :lol:

Seriously, if you do come, first round is on me.

And Mark, Cotty, What's up?

Jim and Brad will be so upset to hear you can't make it Cotty. Who will be your replacement in the Cotty Cup?

Hope to see all you guys and gals at the World Championships. I need more goofy pictures. :P

My self, Happs and Rob Atha are all definitely going to Vegas. 100%

Dave Oates you have to go, you were the one to convince me. Martyn wants to go and Rob Davey might just lift that thumb off his head and squeeze out.

Even though I've been to 4 of the last 5, I am unsure this year Mase...................... but haven't totally ruled it out.

For those who are going, approx how much is it costing?
I know that I suck, but I might want to give it a go anyway.

Are you kidding me? Your money is now worth about 20 times the American dollar.

Once you convert your money, you guys will be rich.

Vegas

This was sent to me by Valley does it pursuade anyone else to make the pilgrimage?

Foosball Players,

       As you know the next 2008 Foosball World Championships is around the corner and it is time to start preparing now.    

       It will be held at the Riviera Hotel and Casino, from Sept. 24-28 and for all non North American players, they will NOT have to pay any membership

       fees at this year's tour events!

       For all ITSF Team Event members, outside of North America, the following are your package deal prices:

                               Master:          $300
                               Pro:                 $200
                               Semi-Pro:         $125
                               Amateur:         $100

       Please let me know if you will be coming to play in this year's tournament and if you will need me to send you an invitational letter for your visa.  I can

       also assist with any hotel reservations that you may need to make for this event.  All payment in full will be due, time of arrival at the hotel.

       The World Championship Series is a sanctioined ITSF points race event and the top three players in Open Singles and the winners of Women's

       Singles and 18 & Under Singles will get an expense paid trip to the ITSF Champinships again this year.  This event is a true test of one's foosball

       skills, as you have to compete on at least three different tables against players from all over the world.    

       
       Corona Light along with Tornado will be sponsoring this event again this year, so come by for all the excitement and let's play FOOS!
