Intermicronational Olympics Teased by New Micronation

olympics

A proposal for a micronational version of the Olympics has been proposed on the Micronation.org forums. First post from our new contributor Ned Greiner.

Yesterday, on the Micronation.org Forum, Kryemmmeria, a new face on the micronational block, announced that they could be hosting a micronational equivalent of the Olympics.

They plan to found a Micronational Olympic Committee, with a host city. It is most likely that competing nations will be trusted to mail their untampered results to the Committee, like in previous micronational Olympic games.

This is of course mainly due to the inability of many micronationalists to attend such a competition due to their young age and financial constraints.

They posted some details:

Info about the IMOC
Motto: Citius, Altius, Fortius
Formation: May 18th, 2016
HQ: TBVO [to be voted on]
Membership: 0 active members, 1 honorary member
HP: To be elected
Presidents: To be elected
VP: To be elected

So far, nothing but support has been attributed to the new campaign, suggesting that this may indeed be the next Olympics that the community will see.

Updates to follow.

McCarthy Vanquishes Langford in Chess

The Micronational Chess Tournament Association has already completed the first game of the season, with Kit McCarthy duelling Dallin Langford.

The tournament, which is sponsored by the Micronational Dollar Institute, has a M$1 entry fee and the contestants have their eye on a M$10 prize.

Kit McCarthy defeated Langford after around 40 minutes, although some are calling for a rematch.

Horatio Eden and Thomas Merrell have also begun their first match.

McCarthy was black, and Langford white.

McCarthy will now play the winner of Eden v. Merrell.

The tournament is still looking to fill its last three places, and interested parties are to contact peregrine230@gmail.com
