Botswana Worlds 2011 Update : Payment Status Update : Dropping teams who have not paid, Waitlist to Open

Greetings - this is on behalf of the Registration Director of Botswana Worlds 2011. Email registration or grahamsowa if you have questions about registration.

Dear Worlds Participants and Aspiring Worlds Participants:

Here is the list for all verified deposit and final payments we have to date. You should check your online account for more detailed information. Now, after looking at this list you might have one little question: "WHERE IS MY MONEY!!!" This is a good question, and one that has two potential answers with easy solutions:

  1. If you are missing 5 USD – 25 USD from your payment this is because the bank charged the transfer fee to our account. We need you to pay this deficit with your final payment. If you have already paid your final payment please wait to pay by cash or check upon physical registration in Botswana (no need to send a wire transfer for 20 bucks).

  2. If you are missing a lot more money than that it is probably because we have your payment proof but have not been able to match it up with your University because of lack of identifying information in the sender details. No problem. Just email/forward your proof of payment to right away and you will be all fixed up in under 24 hours. You could also just email us the tracking number and amount and senders name if that is easier and we can match it this side.

I tried contacting all of you through the email addresses you registered with but some of those accounts are no longer in service. So if this is the first time you are hearing about this I'm sorry, but we really did try to email everyone a few times each in the past days. If you would like to update your email address please feel to do so. If you need to write me an angry email you are also free to do that, just keep it short. But please check your online account before emailing me – we've written comments where appropriate and you might find the answer there.

Institutions who have not paid deposits and not contacted us will be dropped in 48 hours. 5 days after the deadline to pay in full (2nd of September), teams who have paid deposits but not paid in full will also be dropped. Deposits will not be refunded or transferred between teams/institutions or pooled together to become full payment for a team. Teams on the waiting list should prepare to get ready to pay.

The full list can be viewed at
