I want a tournament in Geneva ffs

Postby karios » Tue Feb 12, 2008 10:04 am

Why do I always go to countries with very few or no KO players at all? :lol:
Anyone in Geneva CH? Hello?

I love Geneva. I prefer Basel as its nearer to Germany and has links to Zurich in about 25 mins and Geneva in about 30 etc

Actually I just Love Switzerland, been there many times, Lucerne, Lausanne, Geneva, Zurich, Basel, Interlaaken etc, love them all, people are nice too.

I therefore would love a 'big' event to be held in Switzerland, its pretty easy to get to (Basel and Geneva especially) from the UK on the cheap airlines and is a pretty central location for most of Europe (Germans could get there by train in no time, the Dutch aren't that far, Italians could probably get there by Train as well and the Greeks could travel via Trojan Horse or something)

So whilst I don't think there are enough 'players' in the country to enable a World Cup to be staged (you generally need a lot of backup to sort out a world cup - either 5 KO2 players willing to help organise, or 3 greeks, or 1 Rob Swift) I think a large event would be brilliant.

I never asked for the world cup tournament to to be held here, I support the Greece option ffs:) Not even a major competition. Maybe a couple of players so that we can have a couple of games every now and then. Btw, there is a direct flight from Athens to Geneva, and also flights to Milan and Paris which are closeby and cheap. So the trojan horse is not (absolutely) necessary. :-P
By the way, I think there is a major tournament that is being hosted here, it's called the Euro 2008? :)
Speaking of which, if any of you guys get hold of any extra tickets, I am buying:)
