We already voted on that. They are in, the current at-vote is a coronation method.
Gardavasque votes "Aye" to using Xcorinate (Aye yai yai).
Xkorinate has Won with 5 votes to none!

Host City Bid
With a method of Scorination adopted, the only thing left between opening General Signups and getting this show on the road is deciding Host City and Deciding on a Sports List.

As it is the Host User who will be doing the bulk, if not all, of the score simulation, it seems only right that they decide on what sports will be played. With that in mind, we shall begin THE HOST CITY BID. I will Telegram all of those who expressed their wish to host these Olympics over the next 24 hours, to confirm that they still feel able (and are willing) to host. After the duration of the 24 hours have elapsed, we will move into a campaign phase (more on that then). The ability to apply to host will also close then. Anyone wishing to Host who has not said so must do so before that time.

To prospective Hosts

Please feel free to post any information (OOC or IC) that you think will prove that you are the best candidate. This could a written statement saying that you know how to run Xkorinate, in character city info, good ideas about hosting, or anything else you can think of. I will be formally enlisting the help of some seasoned Sports Role-Players of this region who are not prospective hosts (if they are willing, of course). They will aid me in coming up with a comprehensive list of the duties and privileges of the host.

Long Live the Olympics!

TOFINO, ZAMASATAN
WHY DO WE WANT TOFINO TO BE THE HOST CITY?
Tofino is known as the most exciting, attractive and welcoming city destination in Zamastan, and a must-visit year-round destination. We want the world to experience what our wonderful capital city has to offer.

Our corporate core values are these:
We live, breathe and share Tofino. Our passion for the destination motivates all we do. We champion tourism as a positive force for the city and are invested in the sustainability of our industry. We are powered by people. We cultivate an open, respectful and professional environment where success and collaboration thrive. People are the source of our strength. We are adventurous. We are empowered to take educated risks, pursue new ideas, and build big-picture strategies. We are driven by continuous growth and inspire industry leadership. We play with purpose. We value work/life balance and embrace opportunities to recharge and rejuvenate. We believe play enhances creativity and take inspiration from our surroundings.

SPORTING VENUES
Tofino has over 12,790 square kilometers of parkland area that can be converted easily into sporting venue area without major impact to the natural environment. There are also many existing venues that can be used for sporting events and can accommodate tens of thousands of spectators. Some of these venues include: Seals Association Football Arena, Whitecaps Stadium, Worwalke Bridge Stadium, Granville Arena, and Pollixtown Hockey Place. These areas can all be converted as needed by proposed events, sporting or ceremonial.

GEOGRAPHY

Tofino is located on the mainland of Zamastan, in the south-west corner of Zian province, the westernmost of Zamastan's 5 provinces. Metro Tofino is made up of 21 municipalities that occupy 12,930 square kilometres on and around the Zian River delta. The City of Tofino is one of them. Roughly speaking, Metro Tofino is bordered on the north-west side by the Zian Mountains, to the south by the Delta, to the west by Agrimai Ocean, and to the east by the far end of the suburbs of Arinals and Whitford.

The City of Tofino is on the far-western portion of a peninsula that is a major extension of the Zian River's delta. The delta juts into a part of the Agrimai Ocean. Several self-governing urban areas called municipalities make up Metro Tofino. Directly north of the City of Tofino is Tirzah and North Tofino, collectively referred to as “the North Side”; bordering the east of Tofino is the city of Arinals, with Delta to the south of the city.

ACTIVITIES
A cosmopolitan city right on the edge of nature, Tofino makes it easy to combine an urban getaway with outdoor adventure. From family-friendly fun to thrill-seeking exploits; from marine exploring to mountaintop luxury, you'll find plenty of things to do in Tofino.

If you're an arts lover, you'll feel right at home in Tofino. The city's rich cultural background has helped produce a spectrum of artistic expression and a thriving creative community.

Tofino is the perfect destination for those looking for the adventure of a lifetime! From heart-pounding thrills set against a spectacular backdrop, through to serene journeys into nature, and family-friendly fun, you'll find plenty of options to create smiles and build life-long memories.

Which way to the beach? Well, in this city you can find one everywhere you turn. You might not associate Tofino with beaches, but whether you're looking for a stretch of sand to spread out and relax with a good book, an outdoor court to spike a volleyball, or a catwalk to strut your stuff, you’ll find it here.

There's no better place for boating and fishing enthusiast than Tofino with its stunning coastline and endless waterways. Charter a boat from any number of charter boat companies and head out for the open water. The largest concentrations of these charter companies are located at Granville Island, Horseshoe Bay and Coal Harbor. They can also advise you where the fish are biting.

You never forget how to ride a bike. And that's a good thing because you may want to jump on one and tour around during your visit. Bikes are commonplace in this city and Tofino has numerous cycle paths and bike routes, ranging from easy, flat terrain around Gaviria Park to mountain biking on the famous North Side. Cycling is perhaps the best way to explore Tofino and its superb natural beauty.

Chair Announcement
Host City Applications
There are two main aspects to Host City Bidding (and I encouraged the individuals that I have already commented to add to the list if they see fit):

The In Character Aspect
&
The Out of Character Aspect

The In Character requirements will be easy. If you wish to host, please put a PSA on this thread describing your nation, city, its amenities, etc. This both shows your cities In Character ability to host the olympics and Your OOC Role Playing ability. Zamastan's is a very good example of this.

The OOC portion is much more complex. You should post it in this Thread. You will have to do the following:

Download Xkorinate (If you can't, you can't host, I am sorry)

Describe any and all RP hosting or Sports roleplaying experience you may have

Describe what sports/events you intend to run (the full list can be found in the Xkorinate application under "events")

Describe the approximate time frame you would run the Olympiad on (the fewer days the better)

How active are you/will you be during the time of the Olympiad?

I am going to be very busy this next month so I figure we extend the timeframe well into April.
