Sorry, I'm not participating actively to this forum, mainly to the moya.net chatboard, but just wanted to say my opinion about the messages.
I think that if we want to have a lot of messages, we should wait maybe until his birthday (in August) to deliver him the messages. We don't know if he'll be physically good to play in Bastad or in Umag, but I hope so of course.
I think as birthday present, each fan could send from his/her country a postcard, to let Carlos know from which countries he has fans. A real postcard would be better than just printed messages. If you can't send a postcard, you'll send a message by email, it's not a problem.
On this postcard or birthday card, you could write whatever you want to Carlos. For those you want, you can send a picture of you with Carlos with some nice words.
I think it would be great to collect those messages and to deliver him as a booklet.
I have a lot of experience cause through my website dedicated to the Swedish player, Thomas Enqvist, we often send him messages. Last time, was for his birthday in March, we gave the messages to the swedish captain, Mats Wilander and he gave the messages to Thomas, who got the messages for this birthday. Last year, in STockholm, we also give him beautiful pics I took of him, with messages, and a few years ago, when he was injured, I made a booklet with messages. He always appreciated our support and I'm sure that Carlos will appreciate as well.
Well, if we want to have many messages, we have to wait, personnally, I think Umag is too short, or maybe we could just deliver messages through the net (for Umag) just to tell him that we are still here and maybe for his birthday making something better (the postcards and birthday cards) ?
What do U think ?
Personally, the next tournament, I'll attend will be Stockholm and BNP Paribas in Paris.
So, I could organise the whole thing, to arrange the postcards, birthday cards, messages and if someone goes on a tournament during his birthday (don't know which tournament it will be at that time, I haven't checked), I could send him/her the whole thing and this person will deliver Carlos the gift.
I'm going to send the whole project to the webmaster of Moya.net, hope she'll accept to put it on her website and all the informations, if you wish to participate.
Thanks in advance for the fans who would participate to his campain !! Carlos deserves it
For me, the greatest Spanish player ever !!
