If so, here's a first draft:
Call for Intention to Bid wrote:Greetings, MECCGers!
Yes, it's still winter, but it's already time to start thinking about the summer of 2007! World Championships is scheduled to be in North America this time around, so this call for intention to bid is specifically addressed to all (potential) tournament organizers in the United States, Mexico, and Canada.
All we want NOW is notification of your intention to bid, not the actual details of the bid itself.
Here is the timetable of what we'll be asking for:
Intention to bid: October 21
Bid, complete with details: November 25
CoE's awarding of the right to host worlds: 22 December
Worlds 2007: Summer
What do you think?
Also, what is your opinion of the fact that South America and Japan never get a chance to host worlds? Is that fine, since their communities are not very strong, or should we encourage them to bid? If so, when?...
