Does accommodation have to be paid for in the initial booking payment?

I'll defer that one to fnord (Wombat Capn) for full answer.

But I do not believe it does. It is just a service being offered by the organisers.

Ok so lets say for the sake of argument that

Team wombat is gtg

We can make a team from-

Easykicker
Sumbloke
Devilsreject
Brunificus
Grumpsh
Smeborg

We have 1 confirmed leftover
Gumbi (this is all for example but i chose gumbi as he's based in UK and could more easily play with a UK team)

So we have a big list of maybe's. In answer to Rabid's question i'm allowing 3k including beer and pretzels if i just go and back (although i think 2.5 could be doable)
I think its clear we're going to have 2-4 in the leftover pile to combine with a european team. Now if we start talking to the likes of DS now im sure thats not a problem but we should do that this week.

So do we want to have a deadline of say Next Wednesday or 18/2 for people to say "yup i'm in" or take me off the maybe list cos i think the maybe list is confusing people

Please don't read this with any tone other than slightly exasperated:

How is it confusing grumpsh?

The maybe list was there to indicate people that other keen coaches could contact and see if they were keen to form a team.

Other than Gunnar, Rabid, and Gumbi none of the interested parties has posted in here for some time. If they haven't contacted sum bloke, easykicker, or smeborg (the 3 proactive people trying to organanise a team) by now than we can pretty much scratch them based on time available to register, yes? I was leaving them as a last chance contact for people to sort amongst themselves, not to "confuse" the issue.

The "interested/maybe" list is a tool for people to reach out to each other. It is in no way official and thus i cannot see how it is confusing th issue. At no point did i do other than encourage others to sort out who they would like to go Blood Bowling with and provide a handy list so people could sort themselves out.

As per the last post and lack of certainty from Rabid and Gunnar and Gumbi maybe give a day or two for them to confirm or get someone to register for team you proposed...assuming everyone in it has been at least PMed by you and agrees?

TL:DR - PM the people on your list and confirm their details and commitment to pay. THen register the team. :)

Grumpsh's suggested team sounds good to me.

I have PMed the short list of 8 people to confirm they can talk amongst themselves and lock in a team (or two and ask for some Euros/ Expats to join).

Hope to hear positive news as I would love to see 2-3 OZ/ NZ teams again!! :)

Whilst I have some other big plans this year and would have loved more time to know I've planned well, I think I will still be in a good position later in the year to still make the trip. So I'll confirm now. My preference is to be on team ANZAC rather than team Wombat (I have a military background)

my soul is sad now.

Yup some quick pm's are what i was going to do tonight.

So rabids out :( (although reduced risk of wrestling related injury), gumbi's out, Gunnar is IN (which makes 2 WA's just saying) which currently gives us the number of 7. I'll send a pm to everyone else that was on the "interested" list.

whoops i didnt send it to the people on the NZ interested list... maybe smeborg can do that as he might know them better than i

Devil is in and sent a pm to say so. I am waiting on a reply from Brunificus.

If by some chance we end up with seven people I can go as an individual player in a mixed team. It is same offer I made for WC2.

At this stage Brunificus has confirmed. Still waiting on Shadow and 3 Kiwi's to confirm.

Quite possible we will be short in one team still. If anybody is still a possible they will need to let us know before we have to enlist from the Europeans.

Here is the current status of kiwi participation:

smeborg (Paul Deacon, myself) - definite
Claymore (James Hills) - definite

ciderboy (Dan Norman) - probable, awaiting confirmation
speedingbullet (Jim McMahon) - probable, awaiting confirmation

Sandune (Nick Blackwood) - possible, awaiting confirmation

That's a possible 5 at the moment. If we add the 7 from Oz (Colonial Boys + stragglers), i.e.:

Gunnar-Balvi - definite
Easykicker - definite
Grumpsh - definite
Brunificus - definite
Stratford (Devilsreject) - definite
Sumbloke - definite

shadow (Andrew Vulling) - probable, awaiting confirmation

That would make exactly 12, I know I am being a bit optimistic, but why not? There is also the possiblity of other expats popping out of the woodwork, but I'm not aware of any at the moment.

Please bear with me while I close out the remaining probables and possibles. Please also feel free to correct the above if I have made any mistakes or left anybody out.

All the best

Paul
