Texas State Windsurfing Festival
Reschedule again due to high water level
DCYC grounds are still flooded
RESCHEDULED TO SEPTEMBER 4-7
See our Events Page for Details
See pictures of the flooding here
It appears that there can indeed be too much of a good
thing. The torrential rains this spring have flooded both our camping
area at DCYC and the DCYC septic system--to the point that DCYC can no
longer support our event this weekend.
Given that other potential locations for holding the races are also flooded out (e.g. Hobie Point), and the fact that it's Memorial Day weekend, it doesn't look like any other acceptable venue is available. We are going to have to postpone the Texas State Windsurfing Festival to a later date, yet to be determined. We will set the next date within the next day or two and are looking at later in June or beginning of July at DCYC.
For those who pre-registered, full refunds will be available to anyone who, for whatever reason, does not want to move their registration to the new date. Thanks for your understanding as much we would like to hold the event this weekend, the flooding has become too much for the event site.
