Talk:Small States Games of Europe
A few questions:
- Why would Skuodia have joined only after the fall of the SNOR? After all, it doesn't seem to be a political event of any kind.
- What exactly defines a "Small State"? Baden, Thuringia, Hessen and Saxony don't exactly appear to be small states. From the HRE, I'd rather expect Braunschweig, Lippe, Hamburg... From outside the HRE perhaps Iceland would be a candidate, perhaps Greenland as well.
- Aha, and one more thing: I think it would be pretty IB if the Games were also joined by a few subnational entities that are not exactly states but enjoy some kind of special status: Isle of Man, Wight, Elba, Svalbard, etc.
- Skuodia joined after the fall of the SNOR for no real political reason, just thought that would add flavor. Perhaps in the upcoming 2010 SSG Elba, Iceland, and Lippe may join... Seth 07:53, 4 August 2009 (UTC)
The MR accepted the invitation to join in 1984, so I have added its name to the list of current participants. The MR will be sending some athletes to the Games next year in Grand Fenwick. Caeruleancentaur 20:21, 26 August 2009 (UTC)
