Not too bad.

OK for the applicant cities you can start working on your submission - it will be a brochure style booklet that must be a minimum of 5 pages. It should include venue plans, a brief run down on your bid and whatever other info you feel we need to know. We'll negotiate a due date in due course.

The applicants to date are -


Halifax CANADA

Islamabad PAKISTAN


Toronto CANADA

Valetta MALTA (Maybe)

No South African, Indian or West Indies bid yet? Hmm.
