We have an update on yesterday's post about the Australian Chess Championships 2007-08. In the ACF's latest newsletter we can read the following line: "There have also been other indications of some interest in the event but none of these has yet led to a formal bid."
Yet Victorian inside man, Trevor Stanning (treasurer of the Box Hill CC), assures me that Chess Victoria did submit such a bid - that is, a formal bid. You can read some postings on the Australian Chess Club Forum about this here.
That just kinda leaves me with a big, "Huh?"
