KDC Update: Kumba Skate Plaza Reopening, Skate World Champs, & More
Kumba Skate Plaza May Be Open In Time For The Weekend!
We are hopeful that the Kumba Skate Plaza can be open by this weekend! WSGP is still waiting on Northern Cape Department of Economic Development & Tourism (DEDAT) to provide funding to fix transformers and make the facility safe to our local skaters and visitors once again. Our apologies go out to everyone effected by the skatepark’s extended closure; the issue was out of our control.
WSGP Proposes New Date For Skateboarding World Championships!
The new date provided by WSGP is proposed for December 1 to 3rd 2016 . We feel that this is the last date of the year that KDC can be held in 2016 and have provided this date to DEDAT and the Northern Cape Provincial Government (NCPG). We are hopeful that DEDAT can pay its past due payments and honor its other commitments in time to make this happen prior to Christmas. It would be a great Christmas gift for the skateboarders and thousands of people negativity affected by the postponement. WSGP continues to try to resolve the past due payments and other commitments made by DEDAT and are hopeful that we are able to reschedule the World Championships.
We appreciate the outpouring support from the skateboarding community for WSGP and look forward to supporting South Africa skateboarding for many years to come!
