Looks like we're going to Ipoh for the first time this year. When we were driving up to Penang last year and passing Perak I was thinking would be nice to play in Ipoh.
Its good thing they scrapped the idea of playing in Perlis. There are 2 legs in KL/PJ which is ok for us to travel I guess but its basically the same place. I hope the KL leg is not at bloody Xtion because that place is a shit hole when it rains. The PJ leg will most probably be where the World Cup was which was ok because Amcorp Mall and the Putra train station was nearby.
Penang is nice to play in- good food and friendly people. The Penang teams are really friendly and it'll be nice to play there.
By far the best venue is in JB. The last JB MLOC leg they threw a gala dinner for us before the tournament and the field was good and the team tables were on hard ground. They were very smart- all the walking air tent and team tents were on hard ground. So min damage to the field and min mud even though it did rain. I like playing at the JB field and we get to sleep in our one beds at home in Singapore. So JB is like our 'home' tournament.
And the JB finals will be on my birthday- we're going to have a BBQ at our tent.
The World Cup Asia is going to be in Terengganu- I think Paul is too ambitious with this venue. Its too far to travel even for some teams in Malaysia and for us in Singapore and I highly doubt that the foreign teams will want to travel all the way there which is even futher from KL.
Well I hope with the arrival of our bunkers next week and etc we'll get time to train and do well.
Next week - practice guys - after we figure out how to air and secure the sup'air bunkers.
