date in hannover

Postby Detlef Rehbock » Sat Dec 16, 2006 9:06 pm

hey donald,

sorry, but at the moment i don´t know the date.
it depends on the expo summer party, because we will be part of it.

there are two possibilities at the moment
1.-3.june or 8. to 10. june

but maybe if the americans go to paris and after paris to hanover, we will find a way
to have the race on the first weekend in june.

what do the skaters think? remember the party in 2005.


but i have a good news. we find a giant cours with very steep incline
we talk about 15 %. pictures will follow soon.
the location is 5 minutes by car from the expo area.

and now .......party time.
have a nice weekend

Hey Detlef!

I know having it June 1-3, right after Paris, would make it a lot more appealing to overseas racers. I would love to try to make it to both events and have some fun time in between.

I hope that you can work that out.

that would also be a drag for paris then

Postby Detlef Rehbock » Fri Jan 19, 2007 1:34 pm

i asked for a main status and explained, why i want to have one. it´s early in the season, so i think it takes some time. at the moment there are not so many requests for statuses. for me it´s o.k. if we wait a few more weeks.
we work on our event in hannover. in afew days, we wil post some pics from the new giant course. we find a steep hill close to the expo area.
in the american section i find some application forms for race organizers. do we have the same for europe this year? who makes the decision this year? the skate community or some representatives of the issa?

I met Detlef in Frankfurt at a skateboard expo yesterday. (I also met Heiko there by the way. And YoYo Schultz too.)

About statuses there have been an unofficial rule in the World Rankings before to spread out statuses over the season and geographically. I.e. having two Main statuses one weekend after the other has not been allowed. The European coordinators for 2007 will look it over but I'm just telling what has been the main idea before.

As Claude said, all event organizers for 2007 should have a look at this document

http://www.slalomskateboarder.com/ISSA/ ... cation.doc

But maybe Paris only wants a Prime status this year ;-)

so as it is,hannover doesn't get a main?
who decides that?
where are the other potential mains in europe that can rival hannover right now?
i only see flatland grenoble a´nd that's it.
is that how the efforts of an organizer are honored?

maybe next time hannover should not be so close to paris?
then no americans would join the races.
did you guys consider that fact too?

what a strange world...

If Hannover doesn't get main just because it's too close to Paris that would be very dissapointing for a lot of people, especially all the people from America or Canada that will come over to Europe expecting two big competitions. Every year, I have to hear Fred go on about how cool this competition was, bigger and better each year, and now that it's only a week a way from Paris and there will be even more Americans than before, it still won't get a main status?!
Very strange indeed...

the problem the issa will create for themselves here(whoever that is and whoever decides what and for which reason)is,that organizers will get discouraged in holding contests on a longer base.
hannover has all the potential(when combined to the expo festivities) to rival any other european contest.on surface quality hannover is already top notch.
corky,your argument has a broken leg,where are the other 2 mains then.ok you got grenoble,but which other contest gets the main then?
i wanna see that.
frustrating also for our american friends who make the long travel only to fall victim to bureaucracy or sole minded thoughts?

Statuses

Postby Claude Regnier » Mon Jan 22, 2007 4:19 pm

Donald, Corky's thoughts below are unofficial as he states.

About statuses there have been an unofficial rule in the World Rankings before to spread out statuses over the season and geographically. I.e. having two Main statuses one weekend after the other has not been allowed. The European coordinators for 2007 will look it over but I'm just telling what has been the main idea before.


Many of us on the BOD and also the members themselves feel that some Major events held back to back are great and will benefit everyone. Don't forget when the rankings and statuses we're being worked on it was hard to imagine 6, 8 or even 10 possible big events in a year or more.

All of a sudden we have the potential to run big events 15 to 20 times (worldwide) per year. Things have changed along with some of the rulings and decisions from before.

I am one North American that plans on competing in both PWCS & HWCS events this year.

from my point the main advantage in dete`s concept is, that the SLALOM WORLDCUP is just a small part of the big EXPO SUMMERPARTY. i`m not talking about 2006 here okay.

everyone who was there in 2005 knows what i mean with spectators. i mean the weather was not that perfect. but on sunday we had spectators (and they didn`t come cause they wanted to see slalom skateboarding) in two rows along the whole race track. they were yelling and they were stoked to see something, they have not seen before.

i mean when i read the visions of some people here about bringing the whole slalom stuff to a bigger level and showing the masses what conehunting is, HANNOVER is the place for germany.
just some thoughts of a little shabby berlin wall city amateur ...

Well, what can I say? I'm just a dumb young guy, who loves to race with his skateboard, right?
And yes, you are right. I love it. Since I got into this, I made many friends, all over here and among the big pond and I am so thankful for that.
Togehter we feel pleasure and pain.

On the other hand, I feel very disappointed. Don't take me on every word, but my words should't be taken lightly at the same time. I hope it's not only me, who can see that some, who live among us in this small community, are seeking themselves to be above the other, to create something that's separating us within the community. No words need to be spoken to get what they want, if you are involved, and everyone else just has to step back, after already stepping back once. Why does Paris always get a Main ( I heard it is officially Major???) and after all improvements since slalomskateboarding came back to life again, after all... How is a race like Grenoble even possible? Look at the time, look at the map, look on what to expect. Think about earlier discussions, and look who is involved. If you want to try to be objective in this case, and if you cannot have both races rated as main, I think Paris would have to step back this time, which I doubt. So wouldn't the euros 2007 be held on a soft and flat ground. But changes certainly won't happen, and why? Tja, well, I'm just a potlovin' goof, but even I can see that! (And I already pointed it out)


I am one North American that plans on competing in both PWCS & HWCS events this year.


That's some really good news, but sorry, it can't help me (personly) being dissapoited of some peoples sellfishness and none exsisting imagination of fairness....,

Don't you read that Corky is writing that there's a non official rule and it has to be discuss?? It's an indication, nothing is set into concrete for the moment!
So dry your tears and now tell us what are you crying for?
Fast accusations and judgments are just making things worse - they are enemies of collaboration and dialog.

But there's another thing to point... if you're so aware of points and statuses: are 3 main enough for Europe?
Russia got a main, OK, it could interest euros
but I'm surprised to see that the two last main races in our "zone" (East Atlantic) are in Australia and Asia!!
These two will probably be lost again this year and anyway, should it be really considered in the same zone??

4 US + 1 Canada + 1 SouthAmerica (lost probably) - seems a coherent zone even if 5 is perhaps not enough for North America too!!!

Think also that if we do everything to welcome people from everywhere to let them get your precious points probably 3 is not enough..Of course, in any case I want to discourage racers from other continents to come and race in Europe.
I'm just noting that during last years, US races didn't care much about kind of things we are trying to do: easy Euro tour for non-European.
Hope 2007 will be different with easy America's tour for non-American!

I think the Cologne - D'dorf area will support Dete even if its main or not !
It would be great to see some skaters from overseas and like Sven said, the EXPO Fest garantees lots of spectators and events beside the race.

in general i think the potential of a race should be recognized and then given the approprriate status.
but that won't work either.
on the other side i see the two biggest events(in ranking) based in one country.
is that how it works?
just some food for thought!
the main problem i see with that issa thing going on is that there is always one guy replying to criticism and the rest of the "team" is absent.
always the same reaction about things that need to be decided.
questions coming up are:who decides what?
or even better:why hasn't that all been done in advance?

the whole deal is existent for over a year and the issa didn't get their act together yet.

and all of the issa have to live with that criticism,because it's true.
if you want to enforce regulations on any kind of structure you have to have at least the paperwork ready in order to gain credibility.

i see this far from being acceptable in any way.

besides that i always ask myself this:
when i organize a race f.e. and i invest huge amounts of time and money in that venture i get my race "sanctioned" by the issa.
where are my benefits in this?
is the issa flowing money or bringing sponsors to my contest?
will it help me to market my contest?

both questions can be answered with a clear "NO".

so,if you want people to accept you and your body,then you have to work with people and not the other way around.

creating such a body is not only about posting on a site from time to time.continuing conversations on the phone ,at least conference calls should be done in order to make this look at least a bit professional.

how else do you think the vast majority will embrace the issa and the package it has to offer?

i refused to be part of this from day one,because i know how much work is involved.maybe some of the members missed that point.

it's a post here or there and somebody is deciding something that has been decided by the issa(when,where,how,and why).

you have to live with that short essay of criticism,because it reflects the truth.
