2018 Olympiad AppealFrom Organiser Ian Murray:

Hi all,

Again ACF has asked me to manage the Olympiad Appeal, to help our teams get to Georgia for the 43rd Olympiad in September.

We have a very promising line-up of eligible players - an all-Grandmaster open team plus three WGMs eligible for the women's team. This could be our best-ever performance.

I'm seeking your support by way of promoting the appeal. ACF is matching donations dollar-for-dollar, until the total costs are covered.

More information about the appeal can be found here: http://acfappeal.aunz.org

Many thanks

Ian Murray - Olympiad Appeal Coordinator
