Indoor Competition in Belgium - new dates

ANNOUNCEMENT
 
FROM THE ISC AND THE ORGANISER OF THE 2ND FAI EUROPEAN INDOOR SKYDIVING CHAMPIONSHIPS 2020 AND 4TH FAI WORLD CUP OF INDOOR SKYDIVING 2020
March 19th, 2020
 
The Event Organiser and the ISC Bureau have reached an agreement to reschedule the 2nd FAI European Indoor Skydiving Championships 2020 and 4th FAI World Cup of Indoor Skydiving 2020.
 
The Event Organiser would like to thank everyone for all the support and kind messages that have been received from the Indoor Skydiving Community after the decision was made to suspend the event.
 
Both ISC and the Organiser feel strong support and motivation from the community to come together and still carry out this event. We all feel confident that we will do so once this terrible pandemic is under control. Everybody loves a comeback!
 
It is important for the ISC to leave a two-month gap after the Mondial that is scheduled to take place in August of this year but also to leave sufficient time before the next Indoor World Championships scheduled in April 2021. For the Event Organiser, who has invested heavily for this project, it is important to organise the event towards the end of the outdoor skydiving season in the northern hemisphere and before the season is in full swing in the southern hemisphere.

The new dates will be October 20-25, 2020
 
Tuesday October 20 - Official Arrival Day
Wednesday October 21 - Official Practice Day - Speed Setting - Opening Ceremony
Thursday October 22 - Competition Day 1
Friday October 23 - Competition Day 2
Saturday October 24 - Competition Day 3 - Closing Ceremony with Banquet
Sunday October 25 - Official Departure Day

Delegations that wish to maintain their registration:
Registration and sanction fees will be held by the Event Organiser. For any paid training time that has already been paid, the proposal is to give you credit for future use. Once you have made your new travel arrangements you can contact the Organiser to make your new bookings.
We hope to see as many of you back as possible.
 
Delegations that wish to withdraw their registration:
Withdrawal will be considered under §4.4.5 (2) of the FAI Sporting Code Section 5 (see below) as this situation is caused by Force Majeure. Consequently 80% of the registration fee will be refunded together with 100% of the Sanction Fee.
 
Delegations that wish to either confirm registration for the rescheduled  competition or to register if they have not already done so, will find further information on the Organiser webpage:  www.airspace2020.be
 
We thank you in advance for your understanding of this unique situation, if you have further questions or comments please either contact the Organiser directly or the ISC via ipcgillian@gmail.com.
