Updated on my life - please read

Hey everyone - FWTT is going to be weird for the next month or so here. I figured I would be open and tell everybody what's going on, so there is no confusion.

On July 23rd I will be leaving to take a cruise of the Western Caribbean (YAY!). I won't be back until July 31st. During that time I will not have any internet (as it is overpriced on the cruise ship) and my iPhone and iPad will be charged out the wazoo if I used an international signal.

Right now, SamR03A and CucumberCony are also very busy with their personal life and will not be able to run the Stanford/Elkridge events for that week. I will publish the singles draw. However, I need somebody else to run it after that - publishing doubles draw, collecting points, and publishing results.

This person will also need to publish the San Diego draw on Thursday, July 28th. Any takers? Please respond below if you are interested in doing this. I will make my decision based on that. If you are not chosen, please don't be offended. It's nothing personal - I promise.



Now - for further news.

As most of you know, I am a teacher. I have decided to accept a position to teach in an American international school in Kazakhstan. I leave for that position on August 10th. I have no clue when I will have internet access after that, but I am in talks with Sam03RA right now to run the tour until I can establish myself there. Hopefully I will be able to get everything settled very quickly (I need my internet!).

Just wanted to keep everyone updated. Thanks for your dedication and support of this game. The players make it so fun and successful. I'm so glad you have the commitment and dedication to FWTT. I to each of you!

I will be around to assist whoever that takes up the post (if they need it) but I don't think I can put my hand up unfortunately.

Thanks Josh. Hope you have a great time on the cruise!!

Re: Updated on my life - please read

I am available to help with Stanford/Elkridge and could also help out going forward if needed whilst you get settled. I know Martine's been a bit scatty with sending points this year but I had a lot going on earlier this year but things have calmed down now and I have more free time.

Josh, I wish you all the best in Kazakhstan - it should be an amazing experience.

Re: Updated on my life - please read

Josh! I'm so stoked that you are taking some time for yourself (the cruise! - very jealous ) and also going to experience such a life changing event such as going to Kazakhstan!! Great that you are doing some thigns for yourself.

You spend so much time on the game, that it's nice to see you putting yourself first.

I am also happy to help out for the week of Stanford etc if needed. Can easily do one week for you - after all you've done so much for us, one week is probably the least i could do. If for some reason it takes a while for you to get your internet up and running while in Kazakhstan, I'd be more than happy to help out Sam03RA in running the game also.

Let me know how I can help

Best of luck with everything!!!!!

I think I have published every draw and compiled the results for every event since January of 2010.

Best of luck and enjoy Josh! If your participation in this game is anything to go by, you most certainly deserve it I am free to help out if needed and am on holiday for the next two weeks.
All the best and enjoy!

Exciting times ahead for you, Joshua!

Enjoy your time off!

I know I've been a liar
And I know I've been a fool
I hope we didn't break it
But I'm glad we broke the rules
My cave is deep now
Yet your light is shining through
I cover my eyes
Still all I see is you
