I'm thinking about going to Nationals this year. They have a 40K Nationals and a 30K super doubles

Fights from Calgary are $380.00 return tax in.

Anyone else thinking about it?

Author: Will Reply #1 Posted: Mar 27 2012 4:28PM

Wow... that isn't bad for flights.

Author: Sniff Reply #2 Posted: Mar 27 2012 5:30PM

I am thinking about it from Van, but, will likely decide closer to the date.

Author: Darcy Reply #3 Posted: Mar 27 2012 7:17PM

Was looking at that one too, will have to see about my work schedule

Author: Linda Reply #4 Posted: Mar 27 2012 8:41PM

Thinking about it. But it's likely going to be either Nationals or Worlds and not both. As of right now, I'm leaning more towards Worlds.

Author: Cam. Reply #5 Posted: Mar 28 2012 8:48AM

I am interested too, it depends on how many from here decide to go!

Author: wilkins Reply #6 Posted: Apr 3 2012 9:19PM

K I just decided to go to this. Just waiting on confirmation that I got the Wednesday Thursday off.
Should know next week for sure.

Alright Team Alberta!

Author: wilkins Reply #11 Posted: Apr 3 2012 9:41PM

What time would you be flying out/driving to Calgary?

Author: S. Edwards Reply #12 Posted: Apr 3 2012 9:49PM

I think the flight is at 11:15am. I have to check.

Author: S. Edwards Reply #13 Posted: Apr 4 2012 10:27AM

Ben, you need to be there by 3:00 PM on Thursday for Am doubles. There is a flight leaving at 6:00 AM calgary time and gets to STL at 1:45pm. Its a 15 min cab ride to the hotel. My flight is flexible and I can change it. I don't neeed to be there until Friday at 1:00pm

Author: Will Reply #14 Posted: Apr 4 2012 2:05PM

I'm pretty much in for this one for sure too, which means I'm not going to Worlds. I'm on record several times saying I love team events, and having that makes this really enticing!

Superdoubles with those payouts, $8000 for first and super deep payouts.

4th of July in St. Louis... can't beat that.

$380 flights...

Lets get a team together for this.. It isn't first come first serve, our best 6 players represent the team. We could in theory put more than one team in, but I'm guessing that having 6 players would be everything. We can put in an Expert and an Open team.

Simon, Ben, Will... who else is thinking about coming? I don't see why people wouldn't want to go to this one.

Author: Cam. Reply #15 Posted: Apr 4 2012 3:49PM

Let me know if you fill the team up, if not I am interested, 380 is more than reasonable!

Author: Darcy Reply #16 Posted: Apr 4 2012 6:48PM

how does the team event work anyway, do all 6 play?

Author: Will Reply #17 Posted: Apr 4 2012 11:08PM

Doubles, Singles, Doubles, Singles, Doubles...

all 6 play, two people play singles also.

Author: Darcy Reply #18 Posted: Apr 5 2012 12:12AM

i'd be down for that

Author: domi nate Reply #19 Posted: Apr 5 2012 11:59AM

"4th of July in St. Louis... can't beat that."
I am fairly certain this statement isn't made too often...

Author: Will Reply #20 Posted: Apr 5 2012 3:37PM

The reason they have the tournament in St. Louis over the Independance Day week is because they have one of the top Fireworks celebration and a world class fair during that time. Not many cities take is as seriously as St. Louis...

Also pretty much everyone just wont stop saying "4th of July in St. Louis... can't beat that." I heard it like 127 times this week

Author: domi nate Reply #21 Posted: Apr 9 2012 10:25AM

lol I had no idea St. Louis was so passionate. I was thinking "4th of July in New York, Washington DC", or, being Canadian, "4th of July in the States" would be uttered more often.

Author: RezaREX Reply #22 Posted: Apr 9 2012 6:19PM

I am strongly considering going to this as well. Team event plus super doubles is intriguing.

Author: S. Edwards Reply #23 Posted: Apr 9 2012 10:50PM

Awesome !

Author: RezaREX Reply #24 Posted: Apr 9 2012 11:51PM

I'm booked. Leave Thursday Jul. 5 at 6am from Calgary $380 all in. Get there at 1PM.

I'm also interested in participating in the NA cup.

Author: S. Edwards Reply #25 Posted: Apr 10 2012 12:14AM

Looks like I'm not going

Author: Linda Reply #26 Posted: Apr 11 2012 9:42AM

What dates/times is everyone flying in to/out of St. Louis?

I'm giving this a hard thought...will make my decision in the next week or two.

Author: F.Q. Reply #27 Posted: Apr 11 2012 11:24AM

I'm considering this, is anyone looking for Doubles partners?

Author: Darcy Reply #28 Posted: Apr 11 2012 11:37AM

I am!

Author: Sniff Reply #29 Posted: Apr 13 2012 6:17PM

I'm thinking of doing this one if I end up finding a partner. How do we choose the members of the team? Looks like lots of canadian peeps might be going.

Author: Will Reply #30 Posted: Apr 13 2012 6:19PM

The team is based on province, not country. You can however play for a neighboring state/province if your local area doesn't have a foosball scene.

Author: Barry Reply #31 Posted: Apr 16 2012 11:48AM

I'm in.

Author: Linda Reply #32 Posted: Apr 16 2012 12:24PM

Arighty...count me in! I will be booking my plane ticket tonight (assuming the prices don't jump by the time i get home from work).

Probably head down July 4th and come back July 9th.

Need a person or two to split hotel costs with....anyone need a roommate??

Author: S. Edwards Reply #33 Posted: Apr 16 2012 12:26PM

I might need one if I go. Hopefully I can make up my mind sooner than later

Author: moyatielens Reply #34 Posted: Apr 16 2012 1:42PM

I'm going.

Leaving 5:40 am outta Sea on Thurs
Arriving 12:30 am back in Seattle on Monday night.

incase anyone wants to tag along. Was like $330 when I booked, but regardless, is a couple hun less than outta Van.

Author: Linda Reply #35 Posted: Apr 16 2012 3:13PM

Cool....keep me posted!

Author: Linda Reply #36 Posted: Apr 16 2012 3:13PM

Cool....keep me posted!

Author: Linda Reply #37 Posted: Apr 18 2012 11:07AM

I'm confirmed...plane ticket is booked! Go Team Alberta!!

Author: Nick in Denver Reply #38 Posted: Apr 22 2012 12:11PM

Crap, it costs us more than $700 to fly from Denver to Calgary, and you guys get to fly to St. Louis for $380??? That's cool that some of you will be going. I'm driving out there, and I'm looking forward to seeing you. I'm originally from St. Louis, and it's true about the 4th there. Huge fireworks shows at the Arch on the 4th, 6th and 7th. Free concerts include Heart (sort-of Canadian band) on the 4th, Third Eye Blind on the 6th, and Dierks Bentley on the 7th.

Good to hear you guys are going, let's set-up an ALL-CANADIAN finals in the team event :)
