If you read it 3 times, you start to realise that what they are saying 
(really badly) is that they are worrying about someone else getting the 
new name and being in competition with them.
Because, don't you know, competition is a bad thing? ;)
What we are seeing here is real ignorance of exactly what terminology 
should be used to describe their situation, poor things.

Actually, if they are a non profit (?) then they would presumably be 
perfect candidates for the new freebie geographic names that this round 
is supposed to fund (you know, releasing domain names requires VC 
funding if you don't think of something clever like flogging a 
different batch at a vastly overblown price)
