Tour Announcement - Game Over

Hey guys,

I can't believe we have managed to play 8 whole seasons of OWTT - an incredible achievement!!

I am going travelling for 5 months next week and then when I return I start start my job as a solicitor in London so I won't have any time to run the game and so the Bali & YEC finals tomorrow will be my last matches as tour director.

I would like to thank everyone who played and contributed to the game throughout the years.

I am more than happy if there anybody who would possibly be willing to continue the game for Season 9 - just let me know!

Chris

Re: Tour Announcement - Game Over

Awww!
You did an amazing job Chris!

And congrats on your new job! It's cool to finally know that you are done with university. I hope for the best in your futur career as a lawyer!

The thing is, about the one that got away, if he was meant to be in your life, then he would’ve found his way back to you.
So, you moved on; you chose a different road. Good. Keep your eyes on that.
If you’re always looking in the rear-view mirror, you’re going to miss the turn you need to make in the road ahead of you.
And believe me, there’s always plenty of road ahead of you. Focus on that.

Thanks Joey

Shame Anna won't get to improve on her 1 week at #1 - you had better hope someone takes over the tour though I doubt it - participation has not been so good lately (due to me taking lengthy breaks this season I am sure!)

Re: Tour Announcement - Game Over

Really a GREAT game! Thanks for all of the work that went into it.
My odd work schedule prevented me from changing my points as much as I would have liked....especially near the end...when my player actually got some decnet results. Otherwise...MJMS would have been #1!!

Thanks for the game...I'm sorry to see it go ;-)

Re: Tour Announcement - Game Over

ohmy so many good and bad memories about this game - 3 GS titles, #1 ranking and many other achievements such a shame that Venus was never champion88 favorite here - then she'd be far more succesful

Thank you Chris for all your hard work I'll miss this game so much

Re: Tour Announcement - Game Over

Oh my god!
You are doing such a nice trip!!

My friends went there this summer : Singapore-Thailand-Laos-Vietnam

They said Thailand was too touristic and they prefered Laos! :P

The thing is, about the one that got away, if he was meant to be in your life, then he would’ve found his way back to you.
So, you moved on; you chose a different road. Good. Keep your eyes on that.

Awesome.

I went to Thailand last year. It's amazing - as long as you steer clear of Bangkok!
