Bimini Winds Postponed
I just got this email from Kent… I know that it was a tough call to make, but I am sure another great event will be on the horizon soon. Stay tunned..
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
CONTACT: Kent Marinkovic, Adventure Sports, Inc. 305-591-3922
October 1st. 2008, Adventure Sports Miami announces the postponement of the 2008 BIMINI WINDS.
It is with deep regret that we announce the postponement of the 2008 BIMINI WINDS event in the Bahamas. After a year of planning and promotion of the 2008 BIMINI WINDS, slow registration combined with a lack of industry participation necessitates the postponement of what promises to become the sports premier event.
“The support of Bimini Bay and the Bahamas Ministry of Tourism has been outstanding, but in an effort to exceed their expectations for the greatest sport in the world, the decision has been made to postpone this event until we can acquire the proper mix of participation and value for these great sponsors. Too many times I have seen excellent sponsor relationships ruined by results that were not as expected. I have the deepest appreciation for the Bahamas and I’m disappointed I won’t be sharing my unique Bahamas experiences with my kitesurfing friends from around the world this November.” – Kent Marinkovic.
The promoters of the BIMINI WINDS sincerely thank Dakine, Bimini Bay, The Bahamas Ministry of Tourism, the Pryde Group of companies, and of course Neil Hutchinson of X-rated Kiteboarding for their early support of this event.
Registrants of the BIMINI WINDS will have fees refunded immediately. For those the have made reservations with Bimini Bay and Bimini Island Air, we will gladly make arrangements to have Bimini tickets refunded and resort deposits returned. Those that made independent travel arrangements and need assistance to change their plans, please contact Kent Marinkovic at 305-591-3922. Please accept our sincerest apologies for this inconvenience.
