Happy new year everyone!

Just like Alkis I have always enjoyed those world cups in small towns. Besides the fun we had in Voitsberg in our night out after the tournament, the overall expenses have also been within reasonable limits. After all I would come to any place in the world to join the world cup anyway :) .

I am looking forward to november already.

Landskrona is very safe. Personally I'd stay away from parts of Malmö, much as I stay away from areas of downtown Copenhagen and the greater Copenhagen area. But Landskrona is very nice, and as you can see, a 1 hour trainride from Malmö, where most of this kind of gang-action is taking place.

Jorn thanks for taking my safety concerns seriously. However can you really deny this area is a murder hot spot against the overwhelming evidence?

Indeed I can. All these links you're providing concerns the areas south of Landskrona. Mostly the Malmö-Copenhagen area.

- The Killing = Copenhagen.
- The Bridge = Copenhagen and Malmö.
- Wallander = Ystad, Malmö and a bit Copenhagen.
- Martin Beck = Stockholm (far away).

The only way Landskrona would be a part of popular ficiton, would be in comics or a book-series like Swedish Shades of Grey.

That's... disconcerting. The Swedes are not going to beat us up, are they?

Considering the positive reception and as there are no opposing proposals, I assume we're set with Landskrona as the home of the 2017 KO2 World Cup.

A bit of information:

The Organizers are:
1 - Torgny

2 - Me

3 - Jacob

4 - Dennis.

The Gameroom is secured. The event will take place at Landskrona Idrottsplats (the football stadium), with a view overlooking the football field. Free of charge. Yay!

We're hoping to be able to provide Real Football at the football field. Artificial grass. Flood Lights.

Torgny will work on securing fair prices at a good hotel in town.

We have a pretty good idea on where to hold the Friday Night Dinner & Draw (Tm).

You're gonna love this years event!

Dates are 11-12 november.

Way to go Thor!

I'll soon open a new, and official, thread about the 2017 World Cup. As soon as Torgny has a hotel-deal fixed we'll open that thread as well.

We'll most likely need hardware, so we'll also open a thread regarding that.
