    Chess books and equipment sales declined with the decline of chess tournaments due to covid as well as amazon which crushes the competition. It wasn't that the CMA was unhappy with the CFC. The business case was just not there to continue in the current environment.

    I don't think that we can run a book and equipment business profitably though an equipment business might be possible in some circumstances. Hal Bond was interested at one point in doing that. To do so you need employees and it really isn't a core mandate of the CFC to sell books or equipment.

    CFC used to own a business condo and used to finance itself with the sale of books and equipment. I agree that a pandemic is far from the ideal time to launch a business.

    We will look for opportunities for advertising but so far most of the people who have approached us are not people that should be advertised on a website frequented by children (gambling for example).
