Final UK Teams for 2011 WPC/WSC

Post by PuzzleScot » Tue 11 Oct, 2011 12:05 pm

With a few people unavailable, and reserves agreeing to stand in, the lists below represent the teams travelling to Eger in November to represent the UK at the World Championships. Congratulations to them all on qualifying against tough opposition!
I am deeply grateful to all for agreeing to self-fund their trip, and looking forward to meeting everyone in Hungary!

World Puzzle Championship A-team:
David McNeill
Tom Collyer
Gareth Moore
Neil Zussman
Alan O'Donnell (Captain)

World Sudoku Championship A-team:
David McNeill
Tom Collyer
Michael Collins
David Collison
Mike Colloby (Captain)

We are also entitled to enter a B-team for each event. The team and individual's scores for these teams (apart from 2 nominated WSC B-team members) will not feature on the official results, but performances will be scored and eagerly compared to the field nonetheless.

WPC B-team:
Liane Robinson
Alan O'Donnell
Emma McCaughan
Nick Gardner

WSC B-team:
Mike Colloby
Gareth Moore
Nick Gardner


If you are eligible to represent the UK internationally, and are interested in attending the event as a B-team member for either or both disciplines, or as a guest, you should contact me as soon as possible. It may be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity (as we do not usually have B-teams), and will certainly be an enjoyable experience with memories to last a lifetime. You should check the official website for costs and schedule.

Sponsor appeal: The UK teams are expected to do very well this year, with at least one of the teams expecting their first podium position! If you wish your organisation to be associated with the best of British, and the positive media coverage we are expecting, please contact me to discuss. We are only looking for a modest contribution, that could provide great returns.

Emma & Nick have stepped up to the plate, to join in the biggest ever puzzle party, and complete the WPC B-team, and leave ONE place available on the WSC B-team. Any offers???
