I notice no replies to this. I knew about China next year. I was under the impression that there would be no WCCC this year am I the only one surprised by this still unconfirmed announcement so late?

Well, I guess it is too early to give it lots of notice, as it seems it is not really decided yet. So in fact we should be happy to get even this premature scrap of information.

But Amsterdam sounds a lot better to me than Beijing! There is no excuse for me now not to enter Joker. :lol:

Hi,

I think Beijing is confirmed for 2008 and Hiarcs is hoping to be there. Yes I think you have no excuse not to enter Joker if its in Amsterdam. Also Joker will get a free entry which is nice unlike the $500 commercials have to pay.
At this short notice I know there is no chance I can get the time off work - we will see what other members of the Hiarcs team are able to do if/when the dates are confirmed.

However I do have my leave confirmed from work for Leiden in May which I am looking forward to!!

Best Wishes,

Harvey
