Well, no one has stepped up yet to organize the event this year. From the signups for the warm up event, it seems there is interest in playing a tournament, but no one can make the commitment to organize it. Unfortunately we might not have a WC this year. As a last resort I would be willing to organize the event this year, but it would have to be just a single elimination tournament. I know some people like to play in the tournament to get several high quality tournament games, and this format for the WC won't be able to provide that, except for the really strong players. But perhaps if we keep things going at a bare minimum this year, maybe in future years, someone will be able to organize a longer tournament.

Oops, it's a pitty there will be no WC this year. I would have no time personally to schedule (and play) or even organize, but it's always fun to watch and comment.
 
What about postal mixer this year?

Well, I can run a simple single elimination tournament. I've set it up now.

It's not ideal, but it's what I can do to keep things going.

Thanks Omar.  I just registered myself (which is effectively a donation to the prize fund).
 
I see the wiki page hasn't been edited: http://arimaa.com/arimaa/mwiki/index.php/2017_World_Championship_Rules
 
What method will be used to determine seeding, pairing, and byes?
 
Do we still need Tournament Coordinators?  (If yes I volunteer to be a Tournament Coordinator.)  
 
Does this still apply?
"All players who complete the tournament without forfeiting a game, including by graceful withdrawal, will be refunded half of the entry fee (500 Arimaa points)."
