IFPA15 cut line?


#1

Any predictions?

I’m going with Alberto at 52. I think the lack of PAPA this spring will keep the cut line from going too deep.


#2

I just looked it over, and I get somewhere between Alberto and Adam. I figure there could be a few more Europeans who opt for Pinburgh rather than IFPA. I’m sure Adam will go, with Escher in the mix.

Points of reference (this is at the close of registration):

IFPA14 (Denmark) - Rank #69
IFPA13 (Pittsburgh) - Rank #52
IFPA12 (Sweden) - Rank #98
IFPA11 (Denver) - Rank #79
IFPA10 (Germany) - Rank #66

I’ve always assumed that the crazy IFPAPA week was about as low as the cutline will every get . . . the real question is how many Americans will forget that they need their passports to travel to Canada? :slight_smile:

… Or not allow enough time in advance to get one processed.


#5

I’ll just leave this here for those that’ll need a passport in a hurry: https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/passports/requirements/where-to-apply/passport-agencies.html

You can get one in three days if you need it. Costs about $200 when I had to do it.

Edit: I think the cut line will be around rank 47


#7

My initial reaction was the cut line would be low (high?) because for Europeans it’s basically a trip to US and for my friends to the South it’s almost like a trip to Europe since you need a passport.

As a result I was thinking the line would be somewhere closer to 100.

@BMU you declined???


#9

Maybe if I hype it up with some PAPA Style after party more people will come :smiley:


#10

I just got a text from Jorian. Based on that picture he says your Frontier is leaning just a bit to the right :slight_smile:


#11

I SEE SUPERBANDS! :angry:


#12

fuck no! Ironman has them, but they will be gone before IFPA, everything else is PBL Red Rubber.


#13

Would be interested to see what country exemptions decline to attended, similar to the world rankings spots that decline, instead of them disappearing from the page

#14

More declines than I was expecting. Looking like the cut may be more like mid 60s.


#15

I see rubber that isn’t broken-in! BOOOOO!!! :nauseated_face:


#16

Got you covered there too :smiley:
