27th of May, 2020, Madrid
IFSS Council has made the decision to cancel the upcoming European Dryland Championship, which had been selected to take place in Italy in November 2020.
It should be noted that World Dyland Championship 2021 will be held in another continent, probably North America, which would lead us in Europe to not have an official Dryland Championship until Fall 2022.
ESDRA work to look after the interests of our European competitors, has accepted the decision of the IFSS board, and as a result of it, the ESDRA board has made a firm decision to continue on the organization of the 2020 European Championship by its own, assigned to Italy, as announced in the previous Newsletter few weeks ago. Europe will have its Dryland event!
If, as the date of the event approaches, the Global Pandemic forces Government laws on restriction of events and border closings, the Championship will be postponed till mid-spring 2021 (likely late April). Safety will be prioritized and we shall consult with our members!
Soon you will be informed of the progress in the organization of this event and the invitation will be sent to you.
ESDRA at the moment has no working cooperation agreement with IFSS.
From ESDRA we hope our members are healthy and safe.
Monica Pacheco, ESDRA President
