This cannot possibly be happening, but seemingly it IS. City Manager Theophan and City officials are apparently pulling the plug on the Quiksilver Pro-NY - I encourage everyone to scream as loud as you can and let them know that they cannot and should not do this!!

Where's the report coming from? Right here: http://longbeach.patch.com/articles/city-manager-quiksilver-cancels-competitions-festival

How? It's easy - call Mr. Theophan NOW - 516 431-1001 and let him know that this is totally unacceptable, the contest and ALL related events can and should go on!!

I believe they are just pulling the plug on the festival part of the event (concerts and bmx, skate, and motorcross demos). It really sucks as I was looking forward to a lot of that stuff but at least the competition will go on.

Waiting on an update on that - apparently it's NOT just the festival, it's now the whole shooting match. Regardless, NOTHING should be canceled, there's no reason. Quik is ready, willing, and able to get the events up and running on time -

No answer at the City Manager Charles Theophan's office? Write to him:

From the City's website:
Charles T. Theofan was sworn in as City Manager of Long Beach at   a special city council meeting held January 8, 2008. Theofan, a former   Long Beach City Manager (2005-2006,) replaced Edwin L. Eaton, who came   out of retirement in July 2006 to serve as interim City Manager.
Theofan   was most recently the Commissioner of Economic Development for the Town   of Hempstead. He served as Long Beach City Manager from 2004-2006. He   is also a former Long Beach City Corporation Counsel, Long Beach   Assistant Corporation Council, and Counsel to the Village of Hempstead   Community Development Agency.
Charles holds a Master Degree in   Public Administration from Baruch College in New York, and a Juris   Doctor Degree from University of Toledo in Ohio. He is married to his   wife Gayle, a practicing dentist, and has one son, Henry.

Remember- its about the MONEY! Get local businesses on board about the loss of revenue. Especially after the storm damaged income on the next to last weekend of the summer season. MONEY, MONEY, MONEY!

Canceling this event or even portions of the event will be an economic and financial disaster for SO MANY businesses around here - nevermind all of the people who were counting on income from it - this CAN'T happen - call and write to Mr. Theophan and tell him that it needs to go on!!

Quiksilver offers to help...City Manager pulls the plug on festival ... You think he may want Quik to foot the whole clean up bill?
It may backfire...if it hasn't already and Quik may take the $$$ elsewhere
