In other news, Waynie has confirmed via Facebook.

Get Mark there too, and Haydn, whilst you're at it, Stainy too!!

7th is a possibility.
Not 21st... 2 days before that is my BIG birthday!! :clown:

Sid Is Bounty Bob not on Facebook? Can't find him now, though I think I had him 'back in the days' but he may have turned his back on Mr Zuckerburg's exclusive society. I think he retired after his one and only win against me in Athens 2008 (after about 50 attempts!)

Haydn is likewise non detectable - are you in contact?

Stainy, I think is in the USA again. I miss the old clacker but I am not sure he is within commuting distance. Stainy if you're reading, we love you!

Anyway Sid, Andy and I will bear in mind your preference for the 7th. We still have some flexibility over the date.

HI all

I saw the message but don't use FB much and have been crazy busy in the run up to christmas.

I may be able to make one of the dates but won't know until later. Did we ever settle on some official tourney rules for the trap/slide settings?

I'll speak to Haydn and let him know.

Great to hear from you again Mark!

I will put you down as provisional (everyone is provisional this far in advance). About trap/slide settings, it's still a bone of contention (to say the least) but the rule we adopted is that as long as both players agree you can use whatever settings you like. No agreement, however, means the trapfix is turned off. We are trying to keep the game as unchanged as possible from 1990 to avoid disadvantaging new members (or indeed lapsed ones) who have never experienced any ko2 gameplay modifications.

One such example is former UK champion MARTIN JEFFREY who I am delighted to say has responded to my Facebook invite and confirmed his interest in attending. If he is back anywhere near his best (and he was always very consistent) then this could give Andy a run for his money!

Also adding Noodlebug to attendees as he has got back to me with a provisional yes. Good to have him reactivated after Dublin, and he seemed on good form there.

Quality work Robert!

Funnily enough, Facebook has been trying to tell me lately, that I should add this Martin Jeffrey fella as a friend...

Thanks for the reply Robert, this seems good. What was the consensus on auto-slides? The trap fix was always a deal breaker for me, so good to see that ruling. Auto slides not such an issue though.

I'm definitely a provisional yes. If the date stays at the 14th, then that actually fits well with me as things stand today. Not too fussed about location although Hemel or Luton are obviously much more convenient for me than a more northernly venue.
