New Bid Book Competition


Recommended Posts

I would prefer a Summer Games too. But I never thought of a WC bid. That sounds good, maybe we could do both but im not sure how many people on this site have the time/skills to be bothered to try and put something together. One is probably enough :lol:

My bias is showing but maybe an Australian Olympic Bid - Brisbane V Melbourne V Perth V Hobart V Adelaide V Gold Coast.....

Funny you should say that, recent comments by Mike Rann suggest to me Adelaide might be going down the path of IAAF World Championships bid soon...which would make an Adelaide fantasy book a little more interesting.

Yeah I would prefer a summer bid book too. It just has more of an opportunity to be more wide ranging on some sport venues.

So would the idea of an Australian bid book competition go down well?

I wouldn't mind doing Melbourne or Perth...

Yes/No???

If a bid book competition, whatever sort of bid book it is, is organised, I want to take part. I already have ideas about Lyon,France Melbourne,Australia and Boston,USA. So, australian domestic competition or an international one ?

Don't know if I really could put too much time into it, but I have pondered lately the notion of a Moore Park-oriented Sydney bid.

The idea of a domestic bid comp is a bit different, could be a good twist. Here's a suggestion - why not two (or more) concurrent domestic comps - say, Australia and USA (Brazil, Canada, Germany, France?), with voting for winners in each (the semifinals) who then square off against each other in a Final?

It is a good idea but I dont think this forum has the numbers and time commitment of people to get enough entries (and quality ones of that). Looking back at past competitions they have struggled to get anymore than 3 on numerous occasions.

I propose that we should do a rotating continent/country summer bid competition, starting with Australia of course :P

Then go through Asia, Africa, North America, Europe (or specific regions due to numbers) etc etc

Yes/No?

If there are no objections then I will take it as a yes and will start a new thread in a couple of days posting the criteria that Lord David and or Mo Rush posted in ones last year...

That sounds like a good idea.

Countries like Germany, Australia and the US seem to have attracted a lot of bids in the past.

I'd be up for a Perth bid.
