Hi guys,
below the proposal for the Agenda of worlds 2017 in Cologne:

UPDATE from 07.08

List of Players (number of positive responses = 14):

Patrick L.
Heiner V.
Thorsten G.
Mario M.
Andreas W.

Marc R. (probably)
Antonio (probably)
Augustin L. (probably)
Oscar (probably)

Wolfgang P.
Bernd B.

Marc A.

Pawel Z.

I hope this list will grow steadily ;-)

I will update that list on regular basis. Keep in mind the room is limited to 24 Players.
The rooms (6 * 4 bed bedrooms) will be blocked for the players until 2 month before the event (means 20.08), after that the Youth Hostel will give the beds again into the open sale. Cold Alcoholic and Non Alcoholic Drinks as well as snacks will be available 24 hours at the reception, it is not allowed by the hostel to bring own drinks or food into the conference room.



Friday 20.10 nonofficial start of the Worlds
6 p.m. until open end:
Meeting at the Youth Hostel; I offer to guide you for a Cologne Brauhaus Pub Tour (if enough players already arrive on Friday we can in addition already play a little tournament, in this case let me know because I need to look for pub we can play, the tournament room is only booked and available for Sun.)

Saturday 21.10.2017
10 a.m. - 11 a.m.: Saying Hello & Sign in for the tournament
11 a.m. - 3 p.m.: Official start of the WC tournament: Round 1 & 2 of the semifinal
3 p.m. - 4 p.m.: Lunch break (there are several restaurants near by, e.g. Vapiano (Italian Food) or fast food restaurants like Mac Donalds or Subway)
4 p.m. - 8 p.m.: Rounds 3 & 4 of the semifinal
8 p.m. - 9 p.m.: Dinner break
9p.m. - open end: Drinking Game WC tournament (probably 3 rounds)

Sunday 22.10.2017
10 a.m. - 4 p.m. Final 4 of the Worldcup Tournament
10 a.m. - 4 p.m. Side events e.g. Hero Sealed, ARDA, ...
4 p.m - 5 p.m. Award ceremony and saying good bye

Feedback welcome!!!



P.S.: It would be great to see very soon posts from you in the forum if you will attend the Worlds, would make me the planning and negotiation with the youth hostel much easier (regarding the blocking of sleeping rooms and the tournament room, which is not possible with costs!!!) Thanks Heiner
