European Freestyle Cup

Sat Jun 14, 2014 8:13 pm

From FFVL (France):-

A European Freestyle Cup will be held on 13th and 14th September 2014 in the south of France, on the beach of Portiragnes near Béziers

(location : https://maps.google.fr/maps?q=maps+portiragnes&ie=UTF-8&hq=&hnear=0x12b110ceade4bd0f:0xebb09030cb1b52e6,Portiragnes&gl=fr&ei=pC5-U8ynA-em0AXG5IG4Dg&ved=0CC0Q8gEwAA )

That competition will be based on the TRICKS PARTY rules, and will be focussed on individual competitors (no pairs and no teams this year).

A STACK licence, or a FFVL licence will be required to compete.

The competition will be held as an integral part of a kite festival at the same site. More details on the venue will be communicated soon but in the mean time, please have a look at the airport website if you are considering participating : http://www.beziers.aeroport.fr/ .

Within France, the city of Béziers is of course also part of the main train hubs, including the fast trains TGV (http://www.idtgv.com/) .

On the logistics of the competition, sleeping facilities including mobile-homes, and various food vendors / restaurants are within walking distances of the competition field.

Should you require more information urgently, feel free to contact eurofreestylecup@gmail.com

More information will be posted as and when I receive it.

Is this a Roger G thing?
And isn't that the same place used for the 2005 FWC?

Just out of interest.

This is part of the Envolissmo event organised by Roger.

The competition is now backed by the FFVL.

I'm pretty certain that the requirement for FFVL or STACK licence is for insurance purposes only.
