VtES EC 2010: Another Friendly Reminder

Fellow Methuselah,

this is a friendly reminder of the upcoming 2010 European Championship that will take place in Paris, France starting from October 25th with the Week of Nightmares, with the LCQ / EC day 1 / EC day 2 on October 29th-31st.

Pre-registration and all the information you need is at official EC 2010 website. I strongly encourage all participants to register both to the event ("I register to EC" on the site) and to the accommodation place (named RIP, "I register to RIP" on the site), as soon as possible and redirect the information to whoever would be interested in attending the EC.

Before including here information about the venue, schedule and fees, I have a request for the people who post on a regular basis on other VtES related forums: could you either post here the URL for your local forum (national or the like) so I can post the same kind of message, or (even better) translate it yourself in your language and post there ?

You may also pass the word using the Facebook event page.

For the record, we currently have 65 pre-registered players from the following countries: Belgium (1), UK (2), France (22), Germany (2), Hungary (2), Italy (1), Spain (5), Finland (20), Norway (1), Poland (3), Portugal (1), Slovakia (1), Switzerland (1), USA (3). We can and should certainly have more attendance, but any boost in advertising from anyone would be welcome.
