New Zealander fund donation

Posted by GilaChess

NZCF Olympiad Funds Appeal
In November 2008 the prestigious FIDE (World Chess Federation) Olympiad will take place in Dresden, Germany. The massive chess Olympiads are staged at two year intervals. For this coming event, New Zealand has an historic opportunity to send what may well be our strongest ever men's and women's teams. The New Zealand Chess Federation is now launching an Olympiad Appeal fund, to raise essential travel funds to assist the 10 team members and accompanying managers.


Looks like New Zealand is similiar to Australia where their Chess Olympic team have to go out to the public to ask for donations. Sad to see both Australian and New Zealand government is like Malaysia. They get ZERO support!
