The TGSA schedule will be set and contest will be cancelled for flat conditions only. All contest (excluding TSSC) will have a two week window to run. If a contest is cancelled, it will be moved to the back of the schedule and the schedule will resume as set. This will allow the TGSA membership and volunteer staff to plan their activities accordingly and not allow events to be postponed for week after week. The TGSA board fully recognizes that some events may be run in minimal surf conditions, but also feels that this is part of a competitive season. The season schedule includes events along the entire Texas coast and will make qualifying for TSSC equally attainable for the entire TGSA membership.
