this just in from the 24 HOA guys:
World Solo Championship – 2006
(NOTE - this is edited down...)
Keeping with the Olympic theme for a minute, I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the fine folks in Whistler for their support the last three years. As you know all eyes are on Whistler as they prepare for the 2010 Winter Olympics. All of those who traveled to Whistler (despite last years continuous down poor) would agree it is a great venue for both the event and as a vacation destination. Moving our event to Conyers is an opportunity to host the best on the historical Olympic course (1996), while also taking into consideration the many current infrastructure demands on the Whistler Resort, which very well could have an impact on the WSC. Thanks goes to our past host hotel the Westin Whistler Resort & Spa, Whistler/Blackcomb and the town of Whistler. We look forward to returning in the future.
As many of you know, we have always continued to build this championship around our past participants. We have done so using what we call the “Grandfather Clause” (GFC). This years GFC will again offer you automatic qualification status into the 2006 event. With only 200 slots open for this year’s event and a new qualifying system about to be announced, this is a great opportunity to commit and focus in on the WSC.
As just mentioned we are about to announce the opening of a new qualifying system that will open up opportunities Worldwide. The new system will have restrictions on the elite vs. age group categories. Taking advantage of the GFC allows you to commit and compete without any restrictions.
that post was an email from stuart - check back on their website for more info.
