Due to unforeseen circumstances, the 2005 edition of the Fabulous Tournament has been cancelled as organisers have been unable to secure a suitable partnership with a European resort. “We started negotiations to host the event with a certain Southern European resort in early February. Despite having confirmations from key resort officials they dropped all communications with us two months ago says Tournament Director, Richard Murray “This left us with the difficult task of restarting the resort search process from scratch in October which was always going to be difficult. We were subsequently approached by two resorts interested in hosting the event; however, as none of the proposals fitted the specific criteria required, we decided to cancel the 2005 event in an effort not to compromise the quality of the tournament.
Despite this news, Fabulous Tournament organizers have received strong support from event sponsors Rossignol Snowboards, Protest Boardwear and Dragon Optical. “Rossignol Snowboards are disappointed that the Fabulous Tournament won’t be happening this season, however, we fully understand and accept the difficulties that the organisers have had this year sourcing a suitable European venue. We look forward to picking up our partnership with this unique and progressive contest again in 2006.” says Damien Giraud, Rossignol Snowboards.
Drew Stevenson TTR CEO said “The growth of quality events like the Fabulous Tournament are fundamental to the development of the TTR. We will miss the Fabulous on this season’s calendar but look forward to a revitalized comp and a brand new venue next year. “
Fabulous Tournament organisers are currently focusing on securing a long term partnership with a suitable resort for 2006 capable of hosting a major International action sports competition.
