European Championship 2019

Recommended Posts

Hi all, last year at that time I was able to open this topic with a link to the event.

I didnt find any info for 2019, but since we know its in Poland, not UKGC anymore,  I am hopeful that some Polish members know something about potential date and venue! 

Anyone with info, pls let us know here!

Still no official info on this? 

German Nationals have been announced now (15.-18.8), so NOT on the weekend we think EUROs could take place. Even if back to back weekends is not really fortunate.

Please, FFG OP people, at least confirming a date would fall under the promised improvement and new OP push. I dont need specifics, but I bet a date would not only help myself!

At this point its almost insulting. If they want a tournament with all the people that can travel around europe for a weekend with a months notice, fine, but most people cannot just take off as soons as ffg yells jump.

I for one would need to plan such a trip as I have a job and family, but hey, they dont care. So why bother.

its really not asking much, Gink. We talking a date, not registration details or prices. US Nationals managed, German Nationals managed, all in August.

And people book summer holidays in February or March, they really do.

 

Edit: Not that I ever placed well, but Id hate to miss meeting you all again 🙂

So I guess five games on Friday, top 2 Friday?

Was hoping for more rounds and more a full two days, personally, but a one day event probably incentivizes more players. Which is also understandable.

no prices just for showing up and playing, looks like, if I interprete „based on performance“ correctly.

What about a top 72 prize out of the 68 at last years Euros though?

not exactly sure what you mean, but I guess that everyone gets a participation card, right?

Think thats the minimum standard, but my hope was more towards Worlds double sided cards and acrylic shield dials and other tokens. That was just for playing, that was what I meant.

I could be totally misinterpreting the phrase, and I understand that Worlds is one step above Euros.

Witaj,
Twoje zamówienie biletów zostało przyjęte i opłacone, dziękujemy.

That's what my friend got on an e-mail. He's not that good in Polish, so he's no idea what it means.

Then it seems my friend has booked a ticket to Euros!

I just wonder if he can make it in time, or if he will be held up by another FFG delay...
