WDC Press Release from June 6th 2011
WDC Member Federations
With high interest we read the Press Release from the WDC Vice President Steve Powell and of course the sadness is also on our side.
For 24 years we host most of the Professional couples in the World in Mannheim and Stuttgart and please believe us, it was also for the German Open organizers a very negative information, to loose this "old" co-operation.
After many serious discussions we decide to follow the German
Open tradition and give all Professional competitors the
opportunity to take part at this prestigious event. In this case we
are really astonished that Mr. Powell informs the WDC competitors
and members, not to have the chance to take part at the 25th German
Open this year.
We urgently like to inform all WDC competitors and members, that all Professional competitions in Stuttgart are Open to the World and not connected to IDSF PD or WDC. In this case we follow the system of the three major competitions in England (Blackpool, International and UK), to allow ALL PROFESSIONAL COUPLES in the World, to take part at the GOC in Stuttgart.
We will guarantee a high class Professional judges panel, what will be published during the next two weeks on our website.
Please inform all your competitors about this situation and we are honoured to welcome the best Professional couples in Stuttgart again.
With kind regards
Managing Director GOC
