Leider fällt ein weiterer SUP Event der Coronakrise zum Opfer. Dieses Mal hat es die Midsummer Viking Challenge von Casper Steinfath in Dänemark getroffen.
In seiner Mitteilung schreibt Casper dann auch, dass man nichts unversucht gelassen hat den Event doch noch stattfinden zu lassen. Leider ist es aber nicht möglich einen Anlass von dieser Grösse unter den gegebenen Umständen durch zu führen.
Teams die sich schon angemeldet haben können entweder ihr Geld zurück bekommen oder werden für 2021 angemeldet.
Hier die Meldung im Original:
Hello fellow Vikings,
It is with a heavy heart that we are left with no other option than to cancel this year’s Midsummer Viking Challenge.
We have searched high and low to find a way to safely and responsibly run the event this year. We have explored many possibilities from running smaller spread out venues to even running a virtual event. But the Corona outbreak and the regulations set from the Danish authorities are simply out of our hands. Ensuring the safety and well being of all our participants, awesome volunteers and staff is very important to us. Therefore, regardless of what we have said earlier, cancellation is the only right thing to do.
We have looked forward to having another epic and fun midsummer celebration with more than 350 paddlers in Copenhagen. It’s still beyond our wildest dreams that so many paddlers want to take part in our little event. But 2020 ain’t over yet. While the official Midsummer Viking Challenge will not take place this year, there still will be a chance for you to celebrate the Danish Midsummer. We’ll get back to you on this later on.
Right now, our eyes are focused on June 19th + 20th next year – the date for the Midsummer Viking Challenge 2021. We’ll put all our strength to run the most epic and fun SUP event ever. We hope you want to join.
If you have signed your team up for the 2020 event, you can roll your spot over to 2021 or get your money back. We hope that you roll your registration for 2020 over to next year to give us the best opportunities to run a great event in 2021.
All signed-up team captains have received an e-mail Monday morning with instructions what to do.
If you have any questions regarding the cancellation, the money-back guarantee or anything else, please call Ole Wejse Svarrer or send him an e-mail.
Best Viking Wishes,
Casper, Ole and the whole MVC Team
