Universal Sieger Postponed
The WUSV Universal Sieger World Championships in Strasbourg, France, set for June 2020, have been postponed until November due to the Covid-19 crisis – please read on for further details.
Circular Letter – Postponement WUSV Universal Championship 2020
Ladies and Gentlemen:
In the light of the current events and the restrictions that the Corona Pandemic entails, very much to our regret we see no other remedy but to postpone the WUSV Universal Championship that was originally scheduled for June this year to:
November 26th to November 29th, 2020
This is, of course, provided that the situation will have calmed down by then. The venue in Strasbourg, France remains the same. This decision was by no means easy for us but on the other hand this is not a matter of choice but of health and safety which enjoys highest priority from our side.
It would be most irresponsible to expose handlers, staff, and spectators to unnecessary health related risks – leave alone other factors of uncertainty such as travel arrangements and hotel accommodations since nobody can predict for the time being when the ban on travelling will be lifted again.
We understand the disappointment and frustration that our decision might cause for some of you – but let us always put safety first. And if you look at it – the month of November will have many pros, too, since hot weather conditions will not be an issue and the competition will be much easier for our dogs than in summer.
So we are looking forward to meeting you in Strasbourg by the end of the year. In case of doubt do not hesitate to contact the WUSV Secretariat General. We wish you the very best and please stay healthy.
With kind regards,
The WUSV Board of Directors
