I would just like to announce that all places at Cork Worlds 2009 up to our extended team cap of 308 have now been offered! All offers have been sent to the email account of the institution rep for each institution and each institution has 72 hours to accept the offer of a place(s).
As a result it is highly unlikely that many places will become available from now on, rather they will just become available as teams pull out, of which I must note we do not expect many! Also given the length of the waiting list I wish to make clear that we will be adopting a zero tolerance policy with regard to payment in stage 2. Payment will need to be *received* in our account by the close of stage 2 on October 9th 6pm (BST/GMT+1), and as such we would recommend that all transactions are initiated at least 10 business days in advance of stage 2 closing.
We would also like to encourage anyone that missed out on a place at Cork Worlds 2009 who would like to be an adjudicator at the Championships to apply to be an independent adjudicator. Applications can be sent to our Adjudication Team by emailing email@example.com
We would like to thank everyone for their interest in Cork Worlds 2009, and look forward to working with you all over the coming months in the run up tothe Championships. As always if anyone has any questions or queries pleasedo not hesitate to contact me and I will give you every assistance possible.
