(* Excluding team members already selected via alternate route)
The UK Puzzle Association wishes them all the very best of luck at the WPC, and our congratulations on qualifying against very stiff opposition!
The 2011 World Puzzle Championship, now in its 20th year, is being held in Eger, Hungary, 8-13 November 2011.
More information on the WPC and WSC is available in an earlier news item.
Details on how the 2011 UK WPC/WSC teams were selected is on the main website's qualification page.
If you are interested in qualifying for either of the 2012 teams, please check back to the qualification page in January, or register on these forums. (why?)
In the event that one or more of the above are unable to attend the WPC, team places will be offered down the finishing order of each qualifying route, as described in the 2011 qualification procedure. The final team, actually travelling to the WPC will be confirmed nearer the time.
SPONSOR APPEAL: The UK team does not currently have a sponsor. For less than the price of a part-time office junior, your organisation could be contributing to the UK's international representation, being exposed (even just on this site) to thousands of intelligent, wealthy and influential people in over 100 countries. For more information, please contact Alan O'Donnell on 01313390028, or email firstname.lastname@example.org Thank-you.
