worlds 2013 proposal

Post by marcos » Tue Jun 26, 2012 4:33 pm

I know worlds 2012 has been decided upon yet, but i got a very nice propossal for next year. Alejandro Velazquez (majagua in GCCG and forums) is willing to host worlds in medellin-colombia next year. They have a nice players-base of 20 people and a store willing to sponsor the event. Once again is a nice chance for non-european people to attend a "big" event. Also, i have seen photos of colombia and looks like a very nice place to spend some vacations :)

Thoughts?

Sounds good to me!
there seems to be new interest in the game from Columbia indeed.
Do not expect too many people from elswhere, but it could also offer a de facto solution to the question of organizing worlds once every two year, to have a Worlds alternatingly in Europe and America (north or south, though north seems dormant).
With the propper long-term planning others might also join.

I hope they can wait till 2013. :wink:
If Spain is not forthcoming this year, they could have it this year also, but that would be a pity for those who'd want to come from far.
So what would be a good time/season?

they have no problem waiting as far as i know, as for the dates, Alejandro told me a few potential dates:

- august-september
- late december

if some more people agrees with the idea, it would be nice to make a subforum and let him moderate it.

I agree with the proposal that Worlds take place one year in Europe and one year in (North/South)America (as long as the Japanese don't make their word heard)

Thank you Marcos for posting in our behalf. We've been playing the game for a long time, although very few of us are online gamers so that's probably why many of you aren't' familiar of many Colombian players. However, like Marcos says, we do have a still large local community (used to be dozens more but those days have passed). Medellin is a beautiful city, has excellent weather and there's a lot of tourism to do and at a relative low cost for americans and europeans (currency exchange rate). My interest is not to only host a world tourney with local players (we play often still) but have many of this community to be able to participate. Thus, I would like to know what are the best times for everyone to come and play and visit. I am willing to hear any suggestions and if needed we can make a poll to see which would be the best date. Zarathrusta mentioned me that the best time for him to go would be around august-september.
Thanks everyone and hope that we can make this happen!

Sure! no problem. From Argentina we will be 2 people able to go (1 is 100% sure, that would be me). And for me the best time would be august-Septemeber too, i guess.
