As some of you may have already heard, the Boulderfest at Urban Climb Milton on 5-6 August 2017 will not be the Queensland State Boulder Titles.
However, as many of you know, Boulderfest, in the month August, has traditionally been host to the Queensland State Titles.
Unfortunately, this year, SCA policy changes mean that the boulderfest format for the scheduled Pinnacle Sports BoulderFest 2017 on 5-6 Augustdoes not comply with national standards to qualify as a state titles event. To complicate matters, SCA has not allowed a date change in order for Queensland to comply. (This is something SCQ intends to explore further with SCA.)
Boulderfest will however, still run as a massive social competition, and it will be as fabulous as it always is.
We understand that this development brings complication, frustration and confusion for members.
However, at this stage we do not know if a state titles will be able to be held at all. If this is the case, then we do not know what this means for Queensland climbers hoping to qualify for national and international competitions.
Please be assured we are using our best endeavours to resolve the issues, and we appreciate your patience while we work with SCA to find an appropriate solution for our Queensland climbers.
We will communicate our efforts with you once we have further information for you.
Thanks again for your patience and please accept our sincerest apologies for this inconvenience.
