Just wanted to say thank you to the organizing team in Portugal. From my point of view a flawless performance!

Also great to meet friends and BB-colleagues from near and far. Cheers, guys!

Thank you all.
Indeed the crew was incredible.
They succeed to manage at 9 organisers two tournaments : 144 + 126 players.
No delay, in addition with always 3 organisers had to play (not always the same) due to some drop out.

What a journey since 2007 when i ask if there was a Portuguese Team registered for first WorldCup, the Organizers said : for the moment no, but now yes, you manage it.
At start, only two Portuguese players, Oon and I, with two french players, Lord M and Buck's, and 2 italian players, Nerostinto and Hippie.
When we arrived at the Nottingham, we had only a word : incredible, 276 players, and we were thankful to be there.Oon and i have said, one day we will do the same.
We work hard to have an Eurobowl team. In 2008 we failed, but we participated with the Spanish pirates, but in 2009 we succeed in Italia.
Each years, we tried to improve, and finally in 2014 in Belgim we win the organisation of 2017 with the 8th place. When we saw the Belgium Eurobowl, we said, that is the model we have to follow.
And we have just succeed to make an event similar at the World Cup, even organisers of the Belgium Eurobowl thank us.
Buck's, LordM and Hippie have played, even Hippie win the Eur'Open (only Nerostinto was not here).
Oon and i 10 years after, we succeed our dream together with a faboulus team and fabulous players.
One conclusion, never drop your dreams, go on even if the wind and the storms are against you, keep the faith and it becomes reality.

I want to transfert here also a message from the hotel :
"Thank you so much for your stay and last days with wonderful guests! Everyone in the hotel talks about the kindness and how polite they are!"
