3. Judging affairs

  Gyuri sent an e-mail to lot of addresses with serious accusations about judging at the Worlds.
WCWC officially replied yesterday. WCWC doesn’t agree with Gyuri, now we await his reply.

Hans’ comment: everyone agree it was wrong to send this e-mail all around EAME.
Andreas' comment: – it was a punch against people we need; categorizing tricks

A discussion about changing the system (again?)

Everyone agree: we should work to remove emotions from judging and we should communicate better
and more often to the riders.

We'll elect a competence team to meet by November and offer us solutions to the judging issues.
Council will participate in travel expenses.

Competence team: Lior Elyahu, Gyuri Kirsch, Andreas Boehs, Mihovil Brebric , Ralf Hala, Benedicte
Saulem, Chris Schinko, Marcel Doorgeest + 1 good snowboard judge + 1 good wakeboard boat judge

Lior will be in charge to organize this meeting and coordinate it.

4. World Champs 2006 Jetlake, Austria - conclusion

It was a big and successful competition with lot of media, but the communication and backup for
officials was very bad and office was constantly collapsing.

Jennie Hruby: Wolfgang apologizes as one of the organizer. Jennie will be the person to solve the
organizational issues at 2007 competitions in Austria.

5. EAME CW Champs - progress

Andreas – for future we should include in contract the conditions for riders to book trainings in
advance. We should know exactly what’s anyone’s job. There is a problem with prices at the cable, not
only for trainings, but also for food prices. Judges will get coupons tonight. There will be a cooler in
the judging area. Varna: judging and riding issue is solved with Franz. No team riders or team
captains can judge. Chief judge can't ride. Judges meeting is at 20:00 today. Important item for team
captains meeting: registration deadline, “no show” excuses.

6. Rolls and duties of Council members

2006 – what happened so far

7. World and EAME Cable Wakeboard rules 2006

   There was one major change during the season that first applied only for EAME - Wild Card, but
now it is already in the world rules.
   So, for EAME rules we’ll have only 2 points – general and how we compute EAME rankings.
Now there are no obstacle specifications in the world rules. Lior will ask Langenfeld for blueprints to
publish as recommendations.

8. ECWT 2006 - conclusion

   We had 3 stops – Krk, Croatia; Gyor, Hungary and Marburg, Germany. All went well. ECWT special
– Israel – pending, we’ll know in 2 weeks. Date is 21 October. Hans comments: bulletins were too
late. We agree, hey should be out 8 weeks before the competition, 6 weeks latest.
