Malay Mail Online:23RD Manila Sea Games Focus: Where are our associations?

Posted by GilaChess
Malay Mail Online: "Out of the 36 associations whose teams will compete in Manila, only 16 turned up. “I’m sure the associations will have reasons for missing the meeting,” said chef-de-mission Low Beng Choo. She said the associations were only informed of the meeting on Friday after the National Sports Council (NSC) management board meeting in Bukit Jalil. A check with two sports associations who are serious about their sport – Malaysian Tenpin Bowling Congress (MTBC) and Squash Racket Association of Malaysia (SRAM) – revealed they did not receive any notification."
My Thoughts: Looks like a failure of communication. I assume letters were sent but never received. Probably other forms of communication medium like a phone call confirmation would have been logical if the meeting was important enough. Not a good start to the coming SEA games.

yes... if RSVP doesn't work, a simple phone call is all it takes...
