To tell you the truth, my way to the World Championships wasn't really straightforward. Actually I finished 3rd at the qualification tournament but the two finalists couldn't afford the trip to Essen...
As Dan already said, you deserved it in any way! Congratulations! See you there! ;)
In many countries (including Baltic States) organizing company pays all the trip costs for representing player. It's not the case in Hungary?
Thank you. Yes, see you there. :) By the way, where and when exactly?

Unfortunately the Hungarian publisher pays neither the travel cost nor the accomodation. But under these conditions it maybe wasn't the best idea to arrange the qualification tournament only one month before the WC final. It's not an easy task to find anything for cheap now. In the end I decided to book a room in Düsseldorf, so I'll need to travel ca. 1 hour by train to reach the event each day. I can live with that, but others may have found it too complicated.

Thanks, Alexander. We'll meet at the competition on Saturday at the latest. :)

I hope to arrive at 1:00 PM of Thursday at the stand of CundCo, at the latest at 3:00 PM, if the public transport of Germany is not very complex for me  :o

I'll try to arrive there around 3 p.m. That's the time when I can receive my ticket at the entrance.

There is a CarcF meet up at 1pm on Thursday, it seems no one wants to move that.

Given most of the CarcC members cannot make this time, how about meeting at the Cundco booth at around 4:30pm?
That should avoid any traffic problems!
Or perhaps later and get some dinner?
Mr Numbers your friends would be welcome too if you need a ride back home, I'll have my car too (back at the hotel), if necessary I'll drive you back :)

I'm in. Though my apartment is in Düsseldorf, so I should leave around 7 p.m I'm afraid.
It would be great to play some Carc games with fellow CarcC members as a preparation for the tournament on Saturday.

Hi all,
I am at the Carcassonne Tournament booth or CundCo booth at around 1 pm with all the members from the CarcF Forum.
I am not long at the exhibition. To meet at 4 pm - that would be almost the time when I have to leave the halls.

Booth 2B110 Hall 2 - CundCo Shop

For the members who are earlier at the "Spiel" in Essen tomorrow, please let us see. I am really interested to meet Jeré and also the rest of you.

Sorry, that I am not talking much in the last time. More will follow.
