Manchester UK CHAMPIONSHIP 2017 - 6/7 May

Hi all,

As I mentioned during the 2016 Hemel event, I'd be interested in organising a tournament in my adopted home town of Manchester. I'm thinking May 2017, as advised by others), but need some indication of numbers, sooner, rather than later, so I can find a venue.

I know that people have "real life" commitments, so I'd like to give everyone the opportunity, over the next few days, to let me know what dates are suitable, to get the maximum number of participants. If you could let me know when you'd be able to attend, I can find and book a venue.

I'll let you know the cost once I have a better idea of attendee numbers, but it will be more or less the same as the last one.

Everyone is welcome! Yes... everyone!

Provisional attendees, so far: (I'm using forum names for now, while i get an idea of how many - we'll change it later)

01. JohnVella
02. iankay
03. Lee W
04. Fiery Pheonix
05. Logos
06. Steve Camber
07. chrisad
08. Mark V
09. Mick C
10. Robert Swift (Thought, I'd added this, as advised by Andy...) :?
11. Olly Dearden.
12. Gary
13. Steve
14 Simon (Maybe)

I removed the other names, as I don't know who is still around, but please do post and I'll add you to the list.

Hey John,
great to see this, I'm keen, see if you can beat me again!

Have you been to www.nationalfootballmuseum.com/whatson/ ... all-gaming - outrageously it doesn't have Kick Off 2 on display, but I emailed the curator a few months back and he's happy to put leaflets up advertising KO2 tournaments. Exhibition closes in 10 days though.

I've put your name down as a provisional, and I'll try and get over to the NFM for a look. Thanks for the heads up. :D

Hi mate, would have been perfect for me except two of my daughters birthdays are early december so hard to commit, especially as it will be so soon after the world
Cup in milan which is mid november :(

I had kept the date vague simply because I knew it was your daughters' birthdays, and figured that I'd be able to find out when you'll be available.

What i didn't know was that world cup is in November. Would it be an idea to put this back until the new year?

Opinions, everyone...?
