16th World cup Ibiza bid

Postby Danny D » Tue Dec 15, 2015 2:43 pm

Just got this via email :

Hello, our name is Leo and Luis. We are two brothers who live in Spain. We want to offer Ibiza to celebrate the World KO tournament. We've been playing this game for many years, we have many Amiga computers available and a perfect place to celebrate the event. Visit the island can be a way to participate in the tournament while taking a vacation and enjoy its wonderful beaches and entertainment at night.

We are ready to offer our maximum effort and means to get it right, but if it is not possible to hold the world tournament, we offer to celebrate other event, such as a summer tournament. Any enthusiastic person play Kick Off 2 will be welcome to our city.

See you in the next world tournament. Thank you very much and greetings.

Leo & Luis Astorri.

As funny as it sounds, I would not vote for unknown people, with no experience. But try to convince them keep in touch, introduce themselves, etc.

Wow! Just wow!

I kind of agree with Rodolfo, but at the same time I'd be willing to look into it if they can show some proof of existence in addition to some credentials.

How about they organise a non World Cup tournament first, maybe March, April?

Danny can you direct them to come onto the forums and say hi?

Only problem is that March will conflict with the Amsterdam tournament.

I have asked them to post on the forum but they can't register for some technical reason.
I've asked Jorn to look into this earlier today.

Are there any details for the Amsterdam tournament? Sorry if I missed it. I'd be very interested.

Yes, Danny contacted me about their problems with signing up. I'm sorry, but I was dead tired and was focused on other matters of a more personal character, so haven't been able to do nothing. However, problems with signing up is an Administrator-thing, not?

The dates for the event? Logically I recommend it in summer, from May to September. Participants can take advantage of the stay in Ibiza to enjoy the island, visiting beaches, go clubbing, enjoy nature ... and when the tournament starts, playing our favorite game. In winter it would be possible but maybe would lose a bit of fun but it would win in quietness and the price would be more economical than in summer.
It is true that people do not know us, but we will participate in the next world tournament (wherever it is) and we would expect an opportunity for the future.
We will create a Facebook page go giving more information. In coming days will photos, videos and give help to those who wish to know more about us.
Of course, any fan of KO2 want to visit the island, invited to play a game with us, anyone interested has our support for what you need.

Thank you very much to all, especially the moderators and support for helping to solve problems and give us the opportunity to participate. Long live to the KO2!!! :)

Cheers Astorri.

The World Cup is usually held in the start of november (sometimes it's been late october). There are many reasons for this.
You, your bid and your interest is most welcome :)
