Dallas Housing Authority's Watersports Complex Kibosh Runs Off September Event
|From the Dallas Watersports Complex's Web site, which, clearly, was clairvoyant|
I bring all this up because today, a Friend of Unfair Park directs our attention to a press release just sent out by the World Wakeboard Association, which had planned on holding the 2010 Ten-80 WWA Wake Park Nationals at the Dallas Watersports Complex September 17-19. Russ's complex concerning the complex at the last possible minute is forcing the WWA to find a new home for the event, one of the stops on the Monster Energy Wake Park Triple Crown circuit. The WWA needed to warn people not to come to Dallas after all.
Lacerte's quoted in the release: "From the beginning, the city of Dallas has been behind our project to help create a sports recreational facility in west Dallas. The city, the community, and our group are very excited about how this cable park will help the local area." To which park designer Pat Panakos adds, "This is unfortunate for the Triple Crown and the city of Dallas."
