2014 PWA KLITMOLLER CANCELLED

Friends of Cold Hawaii, the team behind the Cold Hawaii PWA World Cup have just announced Klitmoller will not host a PWA World Cup in 2014. They are still hoping and working to hold an event in 2015.

Press Release:

No Cold Hawaii PWA World Cup in 2014!

In 2013 it was the 4th time that Cold Hawaii PWA World Cup was held in Thy. This time with His Royal Highness Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark as patron. It was a culmination of an amazing journey with an event, which we all can look back at with pride.

2014 will not be the 5th time. The board of Friends of Cold Hawaii has just decided this. This happens in the aftermath of Thisted City Council’s decision to grant 350,000, and not the 500,000 that the association had requested. President of Friends of Cold Hawaii, Finn Jorsal says:

“I would like to emphasize that we have been pleased to collaborate with the municipality of Thisted, which we consider as one of the customers who get a lot from our product. However, we must conclude that we can not deliver for the price they will pay. We have had to take the consequences of that. The 500,000 is necessary to create the stability, which is needed to reach the goal of the overall project. Without stability, we can not do it.”

Friends of Cold Hawaii is not closing down. Finn Jorsal continues:

“The association is still active, and we still have a burning desire for a Cold Hawaii PWA World Cup in 2015. However, one should not be blind to the unique situation we have had in the period in which the event has been running. It is rare that the right resources are passionate about the same idea at the same time, and furthermore decides to make it happen. Whether we can mobilize it one more time is uncertain. As president of the association, that worries me”

Friends of Cold Hawaii has a board meeting again on 25th of February, where the plans for a year without a World Cup, among other things, is to be discussed.
