You may note that the next WC 2022 is being arranged in Belfast - Northern Ireland. You cannot have growth without people willing to put on these events.
Lanes and judges courtesy of Norway though..
I think this situation has to change immediately if the ICSF are going to have any relevance in the fly casting arena. How can it be that we have a governing body, with 27,000 Euro cash sitting in the bank, relying on an individual to finance the world championships - that's a WTF moment for me Suppose there had been a loss, where would that liability sit?
It would be great if the ICSF or one of these organisations out there could/would fund future WCs upfront. I assume we are talking about what, 50%, 100% or some other percentage, of what will be competitor contributions to accomodation, catering, facilities hire/acquisition etc in 2020.
I would love to have it explained to me how, and through which organisation, that objective can be sustained in the long term. Happy to put such a proposal to the ICSF executive and Board so that whatever immediate changes are required, can be facilitated.
