Congratulations to Games Cologne on its registration success!

The co-presidents of the FGG, on behalf of the Board and Assembly, sent the following letter yesterday to the co-presidents of Games Cologne:

Dear Annette, Dear Michael,

It is with the greatest pleasure that we received the final registration figures for Gay Games VIII. In very difficult circumstances, and in particular due to an unprecedented economic downturn which impacted both sponsorship revenues and the ability of individuals to register, you have reached nearly 9500 paid registrations, a fabulous achievement!

This is an outstanding accomplishment for which all of you at Games Cologne deserve to be very, very proud. Thanks to a strong showing from Germany, numbers are high. But Gay Games VIII remain a thoroughly international event, with over 60 countries represented, in part thanks to our joint efforts for scholarship beneficiaries, allowing hundreds of men and women from Eastern Europe, Latin America, Africa and Asia will be able to “be part of it” in Cologne.

As you enter the final days and hours before Opening Ceremony, on behalf of the Board and Assembly of the Federation, we want you to know how much we appreciate your efforts, and how much we are looking forward to sharing a week in Cologne that will once again, change the world.

Herzlichen Dank!

Emy Ritt, Kurt Dahl
