Where's the Appeal?

A couple of years ago, the ACF ran a highly successful Olympiad Appeal. I think it must have been the most successful ever. According to the Appeal website, the effort, in fact, raised a near unbelievable total of almost twenty grand!

But here we are again in yet another Olympiad year and so far the ACF hasn't asked for or announced anything about an appeal. I guess they must still have some pennies left from the last time.

Its sad that one of the most important sporting events in the World ever two years, doesnt have any state support.

Perhaps all pretend sports like rugby and cricket clubs should have there members arrested and there assets seized and handed over to the chess federation !?

The old Soviet System for all its faults correctly held Chess and Chess players as a most important part of society
