Re: [ETC 2019] 2019 Host Bids - Applications

I can't remember the exact prices but wasn't novi sad a lot cheaper than Athens/Salamanca?

If the increase in price for the potential to visit a new city, then I wouldn't mind paying a little more than I did for Salamanca.

More like, how many teams actually spend the time to read the bids or do they just look at the country :lol: :lol:

Re: ETC Salamanca 2017, general info, dates, Q&A, etc.

I made payment for the hotel 3 days ago but yet to get confirmation for it. Can an organiser chase up on this?

We have also been looking for rooms at the hotel. Assuming rooms will be limited and the hotel can't hold the entirety of ETC players, first come first serve! :lol:

Yeah I appreciate that, but even if the venue is somewhere "north" in england (im thinking mansfield/nottingham here), thats still a 5 hour+ trip for us. I've randomly fired portsmouth (as a southern) option into google maps to compare travel times - thats around 4 hours to nottingham. I ...

Re: notice to the captains regarding ETC finances

I'd like to know the estimated figure for 40k ETC teams and who actually gave this figure. Iirc the most 40k has ever had has never exceeded 30 teams and with 27+1 merc team, we were not far off so the estimated number of teams exceeded 30 then that must be reviewed.

Re: Charter update topic : Allowed teams

First, I would be surprised if most of the guys on the various Scottish teams are 'Scots.' So let's hold Wales and Scotland (the Nordies are pure Nordies, no doubt there) to the same standard we do other teams. This will be difficult but some sort of proof of residency should be required. Second of...
