2010 Olympiad

A FIDE press release has confirmed important dates for the 2010 Olympiad. The tournament runs from the 19th September to the 4th October 2010. The first and last days are normally for arrivals and departures, so the actual chess will be running from the 20th to the 3rd (I assume). Teams must be registered by the 20th May 2010.
One good piece of news for teams is that there will be charter flights from certain cities to Khanty-Masiynsk. For players in the Oceania region the closest city will be Dubai, but as of today it isn't necessarily the cheapest (eg Munich may be a better choice). Nonetheless it will make travel to and from the tournament much easier than having to do the airport transfer in Moscow.

Do you know anyone that would be interested in buying a chess table/ hall table?
