KPWT have not paid the Prize Money...

Postby calibra » Thu Feb 03, 2011 2:22 pm

I was one of the riders in the KPWT santa Cruz in Portugal in 2010, I have done the competition in 5º Place and until now I have not receive the Prize money that I have won off 200€, until now I have tried to contact a lot of times the KPWT organization especially Mr. Frédéric. And the answer was that he have not get agreed with the Organization here in Portugal to receive the money that they have agreed to bring the competition to Portugal . What I know it´s that I have made my inscription in the KPWT and have paid the value of the inscription to the KPWT and until now any rider from Portugal have received the prize money, making a total of 5 riders that have won prize money and have been not paid,

So what do you think that i should do?

forget the money, you will not get it. And suing Fred will be more expensive, and he knows that.

If he does an event again in PT, then just go there and get your money personally, don't accept a bank transfer!

That's why he always did bank transfers, so he can hold money back. Many riders had to make that experience...ask Kristin Boese!
PKRA pays cash...

the question is if anyone who won anything in 2010 got his money?

Kristin is an older story, not from 2010.

I don't talk about the money...

my question is :

was there any 2010 competition under the aegis of the KPWT?

Jamaica?
the J&B Masters of Kite - Tarifa was a KPWT event?
the International Kite Festival China, Weifang was a KPWT event?

just looking for info

You a smart guy Toby!
:rollgrin:
that's the reason I asked for the events.

I knew Jamaica was cancelled with all the problems riders had...
How can you be 1st Freestyle, Wave , Course racing if nothing was held in jamaica?

I never heard that the event "J&B Masters of Kite" was under the aegis of the KPWT , anyway I can be wrong.
but I really have no idea about the event in China?

I knew the only event was the wave master in Portugal..

no, you are not wrong. it is complete bullshit !

and I had a talk to a guy being with the sport from the beginning..and he told me interesting stories about the first KPWT events...so I wonder if there was any real champion of the tour ever...or just politics champion...

I am sure Flash Austin has interesting stories to tell!

I can't believe they are still going on like this. I thought after Jamaica they would try to clean things up a bit.

I feel bad that I was supporting them at one point.
