The CNMI may have to give up the hosting of the 2006 Micronesian Games due to lack of funds and other vital reasons, according to Northern Marianas Amateur Sports Association president Michael White. White told those in attendance at the NMASA monthly meeting last Thursday that because of financial struggles, the NMI might have to pass on the hosting, which Guam and Palau are interested in grabbing.


"Palau is interested and Guam is interested," White told representatives of the various sports federations. "Palau and Guam, from what I'm hearing, are both claiming that they can put the Games on this year. I'm not going to speak as to how the CNMI would be perceived if we give up the Games. I don't want to address that at a public forum."
The Games was originally to be held in Yap, however, damage to facilities caused by typhoons resulted in the Micronesian Games Council putting the hosting up for grabs. The CNMI jumped at the opportunity to host the Games last August and was granted the hosting. The Games is expected to feature 1,500-1,700 athletes from around the region competing from June 23 to July 7, including a big basketball tournament.
