RoboCup Iran Open

Next week I was planning to travel to Iran with the UBC RoboCup team to compete in the Iran Open. After the competition I was planning on doing some travelling in Thailand. Unfortunately, the trip got cancelled. Since UBC is one of the team sponsors, they have a policy which requires that we get permission to travel to DFAIT level 3 regions. The official response was that the faculty would not give approval for the trip (due to the current threat level and the fact that the trip is not academically essential). Since we had already purchased plane tickets, the cancellation cost the team quite a bit of money. In July our team will be travelling to Turkey to compete in RoboCup 2011.
