Great! you should know there's a special rule, people who have won Worlds 3x or more get a -6 TP penalty in qualifiers :-)

We'll probably round up sunday at 3 pm. From Heemskerk it's an hour trainride to Amsterdam Airport (4x per hour).

But, since anybody coming by car will be passing Amsterdam Airport upon returning home, I'm pretty sure you'll be able to hitch a ride, cutting that time down to half an hour.

but then the chance is even bigger that players like you and me end up being qualified for finals, who dont want to play and drop. as a result even the handicapped players will make it to the finals again ;-)
