All of the above are at least partially correct.
Part of the draw of the SSWC is that there is no controlling body. Doesn't seem to need one. Does fine without. Every year at SSWC there is a contest (volleyball, air guitar, beer pong, etc) to determine the nationality of the subsequent year's race. The torch is passed to the representatives present (yeah, whatever yahoos show up that year) and that's it. That simple.

What subliminalshiver said.

The "organising body" is the group organising that years event. Therefore it changes every year.

Anarchy and alcoholism makes SSWC what it is.

Just be sure to mind the doping regulations set forth by the international regulatory body or pay the consequences.

That's about what I'd gathered from the bits and pieces I heard.

We're interested in getting it here in Oz, so I guess it's a matter of brushing up on arcane recreational activities and getting a mob over to Italy in September.

And of course you can rope in any other nationality to help you win the hosting rights generally with the promise of beer.

We had 4 competing teams at SSWC2012 hoping to host SSWC2013 and the Italians came out tops.
