World Championships!!

Well, I was just invited to the Women's World Championships in Tapai, Taiwan. It will be held April 29-May 3. I am really excited since this will be my first time playing in this event and my first time to leave North America! I have been invited in years past and I turned it down because I felt like I wasn't ready for that task. Finally, I think it is my time!

The only catch with all of this is the struggling economy. Because of this the BCA cannot give the players any type of stipend to get to the event. Therefore, I am looking for a little help. If you would like to make a donation you can do so on my blog.. I offer signed pictures and cueballs in return. I am also going to have a patch that each person that donates or has donated will receive. I will wear the same patch to give recognition to everyone while I play. Soon I will also have T-shirts, hats and other merchandise. If you make a donation and specify what you might be interested in I will send it to you when they are available. I am guessing the trip will cost around $2500. I'm not asking for that full amount from one person (though it would be very generous). This is a group effort. Any little bit helps!

Thank you all in advance...even if you just say congrats!

Post a link and I will make donation.

You need to get started on your passport immediately (like today).

When I got my passport a few years ago, I had to pay the expedited serivce fee ($60) and it still took a month to get there. Ken is right.

Thanks guys. Sarah's blog There is a donation link on the right side. It goes directly to my paypal. Be sure that your mailing address is correct on your paypal account so I can send you things in return. I really appreciate the help!

Ken, I have to passport ready to go. I went through all of that last summer when I visited Canada. An expensive, expedited service!

Ross, I have something for you. Want me to send it or do you have room in your suitcase at VF for something that weighs about 2 pounds? No, it's not a cue, obviously.

It would be a heavy cue or I get to take you home!!!! :D

I'll see you at VF in 2 weeks, so we'll hold off until then.....

So the $ 10 I donated about a month ago wasn't enough? I knew it... Guess I will have to log in to paypal once again... :)

Good luck Sarah!

I wish you all the best and hope you do very well, but if you happen to play either Line Kjorsvik or Jasmin Ouschan I just can't root for you. Then you are "on your own" ;) (And if you beat one of them, or both, I will have to kill you, just as you know)

I haven't been in Taiwan myself, but based on my experiences from the country just southeast, you will have a wonderful time there. You will be treated like a pop-star. Don't be surprised when you walk around and notice that people in restaurants, bars etc. are watching the World Pool Championship on TV, and be prepared to sign autographs!

Enjoy the trip and keep us updated on the blog!

Thanks Roy. By the way, did you ever get that picture I sent. That was my first time mailing to Europe.

Please, if you have to kill me at least make it quick and painless!

Thanks for the advice. I'm going to need it! And as always, the blog will be updated!

Haven't got any picture yet, but I wouldn't sweat it yet ;)

When will you sell t-shirts? I want one of those, unless they will be in some really feminime colors like pink... :eek:

FYI, I won't make any promises regarding any reactions of your possible victories...

Roy, I will definitely get you a shirt...in hot pink! Just kidding. I'll get you manly shirt. They will be ready in about a month.

Send me a PM with your real mailing address, not the one on your paypal. I'll have some other stuff to send you too and I'd like to make sure it actually gets there!

Johnny, I'm not sure who else will accept the spot. I know it is quite a financial burden. I had to accept it though! I will let you know soon. We have one week to fill the spots.

I knew I did a mistake posting in this thread...

But I haven't gone completely mad!

Sarah is the only American player I will ever root for, as long as she doesn't beat the Europeans, especially Line and Jasmin ;)
