At that price if I were a competitive swooper I don't think I could pass it up. Even if the cost of the plane ticket were $1000 it would be a good deal! Considering what you get for that $600!
Unfortunately my discipline is 4 way VFS.



I'm hearing conflicting reports about this.

Reynier, can you please clarify who's eligible for prize money?

Thanks,

Marat ask you to find out for him?:o:D

This would be an excellent meet to go to, but my passport isn't up to date...maybe a meet like this will happen again in a few years when I'm hopefully doing better in competition.

Anybody know anything I don't?



Have you seen the news in the last 2 days? Stockmarkets worldwide affected by the current crisis in Dubai? A Dubai state subsidiary called Dubai World has liabilities of £36 billion, it has a subsidiary called Nakheel that built the Palm Islands development (you know the 'landing area' - the development/state the meet was supposed to promote). Dubai is now so fucked it is hoping a sister Emirate state (Abu Dhabi) will bail it out.

Regardless of the fact that this event would cost them peanuts to host I doubt they'd continue with it from a PR point of view (Dubai's total debt is £48 billion). The property market crashed in Dubai (down 40% this year).

Edited : => It is just my opinion that the meet won't go ahead and of course I could be wrong (again, just ask Tom B). :)
