    Is he not playing with Bogey? I emailed Kropa a while ago, but never got a response. I'll hit him up again.

    Cool. Myself and Charles are going to play together. So, if anyone hears of a good player, looking to play, let us know.

    Hey guys,
    Shane from Dublin here. I'm currently looking for a team. Planning on going down to Florida anyway, but wanted to see if there were any others in a similar situation. I'm currently based in NYC, but would also like to play with euro folk. Let me know.

    I can see what you're saying, but having driven in a van from nyc to ottawa, it is neither easy, nor cheap. I think it worked out around $150 per person, and that's with 8 people in the van, splitting costs. In this example we had customs as we were going to canada.
    you should fill up a van of people and take the channel tunnel. it's arguably as easy.
    I'll be moving back to new york in three weeks, so trying to help organise a european body from a different continent seems a little odd.

    North America is substantially larger. So land travel isn't really a valid point. Even within region you could have 30 hours driving to your 'local' qualifier. Granted, they are contiguous for the most part, but if you remove ireland and the uk from the scenario, so is europe. At least the UK has trains connecting to the mainland. And let's not forget substantially cheaper airfare in europe. Language barrier is arguably the largest issue, but we all manage somehow. There's no reason that a proper organisational body couldn't be set-up. The excuses based on USA's apparent advantages are getting old.

    The bar end trick on the offiside bar works to protect it from spinning around and hitting the reservoir on the TT.

    hey b, just setting up a set of hydro's now. so would like to know more about this trick you speak of. don't want a shiny, new set of brakes to get smashed up straight away by my ignorance.

    the wildcard allocation scenario was a bit odd. two out of three players on the team i was planning on playing on for the qualifier couldn't attend, due to the chosen weekend. which was fine, that's how it works. but with a week before the tournament, and many teams dropping out of the wildcard, we were prepared to buy expensive flights last minute and compete. needless to say, our appeal did not get very far.

    stay away from surly hubs. bearings are useless, and will just bring problems.
