Hi ,
I am not for a restriction. The number of participants does not call into question the quality of the contents of the tests.
For an occasional player :
- to take part at least once can be a beautiful experiment which could not have existed with restrictions
- will not come to disturb the ranking of the best players.
To find sponsors, to make come the press for this event, it is mainly and nevertheless the role of the WPF to make known the championships, it seems that for Senec the topic "Press Kit" is empty, while waiting for that this day arrives or that the sponsors impose their conditions for coming , maintain the rate of participation "without restrictions" is already not so badly .

Poll conclusion

We, the organizers, acknowledge the opinion of the majority here and are officially going ahead with the option of placing limits on participation only if the venue restrictions dictate the necessity of this. Currently, we estimate the hall capacity to be 200 participants, our main hotel accommodation capacity to be 170 attendants, and additional hotels to cover up to 90 more attendants. We will consider whether the numbers are greater than these estimates before imposing any restrictions. Thanks again to everyone who voted.
