Thanks for putting this together, Kev. Much appreciated.

Chandel spent a bunch of time on Sunday in Milwaukee quizzing players. We want to make sure N.A. is well represented, but also sends the best teams possible. Luckily flights haven't started going up too much, so it's not too late to make plans, and hopefully everyone will have plans sorted out at the end of next week.

BTW if your team is listed as qualified and is definitely not going, it would be helpful to let us know in a comment here so that we'll have a sense of how many extra teams can come ASAP.

I'm also a free agent. Not officially qualified, but I could do the wildcard if more than one of us aren't.

ps. I already have a ticket. I'll def be there.

Unless stuff changed, and I know it's controversial but You're qualified as a winner of Ladies army.

The only reason anyone does anything.
For the lulz.

Regretfully, I will not be making it to Worlds. Good luck to everyone going!

Ticket purchased, ready to represent NA at Worlds!

I'm a free Agent too !
Coming from France, playing all weeks with Hugo, Greg and lefty will...
I booked my tickets to geneva and will be there from the 11th to the 19th, so i'm available for the wildcard.

Yup, bought tickets about a month ago. I'll be in Geneva (Aug. 13-20) for the wild card if my team needed to play in it.

not interested in going

clear eyes, full hearts, can't lose.

Going. Just looking for the right polo chemistry to upset the norm.

My Team commitment is back 1/3 of court with bulldozer breakaways. Allow me to screen your game with 222lbs of polo and agility.

Machine plays in SF every once in a while. I think I can translate:

"HEY PASSET TOOME IM OPEN PASSET TOO MEEE."

Ah Joel , i didnt think the word "pass" was in your vocabulary.
Now you just have to convert that verb into an action and BOOM you are immediately involved in a team sport.

I am arriving Tuesday August 14. I am ready, willing, and able to stop many shots on goal.
