Is it a tournament open to foreigners or not?
Is there any room for an old fat ex world champion? I could consider to make a trip in UK even without joystick, just to make a week end with kick off friends. it's long time I don't stand in UK, my English has got a bit rusty...

I don't think that the British passport will be necessary, I can show the UKC 2007 Trophy at the Birmingham airport! I became English there! As I am Greek, German... ah, yes, Italian too!
