The folks over at Hopkin Skateshop have an interesting post up on their blog regarding this weekend’s happenings in Calgary.
I’m not an IGSA apologist but if a race organiser has problems, it is unfair to blame IGSA. Essentially IGSA is an umbrella organisation for a group of race promoters. I don’t personally know all of them but I am assuming some are businessman, some are fellow racers and some are non profit organisations. The goal for all of them is to make money or to make a profit. Losing money is not a good business model, it has no future. Some promoters might say we aim to break even but there is always a small profit built in for those cost over runs.
