An impressive calendar from the PWA this year, note the change of the Vietnam event from the start of the year to the end, giving the slalom and freestylers a start date close to the beginning of May…
Words from the PWA…
‘We are finally able to release the provisional calendar for the 2012 PWA World Tour. The release of this calendar was delayed by some last minute scheduling issues relating to some of the major events which had to be resolved before we could release the calendar with any accuracy.
One of the events in question was the Vietnam Grand Slam that had been scheduled for the 9th – 17th March. However, due to delays in the confirmation of funding for the event, it has now been postponed until the end of the season.
The Cape Verde event is not currently listed on the calendar. We are still in discussion with the government in Cape Verde and there are still possibilities for the event to happen but we do not have concrete enough information to publish details at this time. We expect more information to be available in the next week, but if the event goes ahead it is likely that it will be at comparatively short notice, before the middle of March.
