    It looks like it will require about $20,000 to send the Canadian Teams to: The 43rd Chess Olympiad, Batumi 2018 Georgia

    The CFC would probably be able to handle this without our help, but I have always believed that members should do what they can to make a difference.

    Jun-17 Aurora Chess Club Club simul with Michael Song $175.00

    Jun-18 David Cohen $50.00

    I have donated in some (not all) of the previous years.

    For the 2018 event, I would like to donate $500 (this is a personal donation and it has nothing to do with the Chess'n Math Association) , and I encourage everyone else to make an effort. This is a good cause!

    Bob Gillanders, please contact me for my credit card info if you do not have it on file.

        Looking at the options from an internet search yielded lots of options for flight tickets in the $1200 to $2000 range. Today there didn't seem to be anything under $3000. Try separate searches for Toronto to Paris and then Paris to Batumi and then we are back in a more reasonable range. My suspicion is that we are probably looking at $25k or more when all is said and done.
