Minutes Inaugural Meeting, 3rd of April, 2008

Minutes of the Inaugural Meeting, held on 3rd of April, 2008 in Port St. Louis

The meeting opened at 11:00am.

Markus Schwendtner made a short introduction and gave a detailed report about the application to ISAF and the backgrounds to become an ISAF International Class, and which preparations have already been done.

Agenda Item 1: Constitution
Markus Schwendtner presented the Constitution for the International Kiteboarding Association (IKA), which was unanimously approved. The application to ISAF will be done by a steering group of five persons, which shall form the initial IKA board.

From the candidates the following were elected:
- Christian Conrad (GER), Chairman
- Markus Schwendtner (GER), Executive Secretary
- Katja Roose (NED)
- David Williams (GBR)
- Sjoukje Bredenkamp (RSA)

Agenda Item 2: Class Rules and Championship Rules
The Class Rules were unanimously approved by the meeting. A draft for the Championship Rules was presented by Markus Schwendtner. Basic Idea is to have a pyramidical structure, with national events as base, continentals as intermediate level and worlds as the top level events. There shall be also International Grand Prix and Grand Slam events possible, on nearly the same level as Continentals, covering the existing “world tours” by PKRA and KPWT. Every rider will have to qualify through this structure to go to the worlds. A world ranking will be composed of all results of every rider in the last twelve months, with different factors given to the different levels of events. The details shall be drafted as soon as possible and forwarded to the Management Board for approval.
Markus Schwendtner also presented a draft for an appendix to the RRS which covers the specific Kiteboarding issues. They will also be forwarded to the board for approval as soon as possible.

Markus Schwendtner thanked everyone and closed the meeting at 12:00 am
