In the last few weeks our world has suddenly changed - the corona virus has restricted our lives more and more. Unfortunately, many people have fallen seriously ill and many, especially the elderly, have already died of the virus. The borders throughout Europe are gradually being closed. The public life by the closing of bars, clubs, restaurants, leisure facilities and bathing and sauna areas has almost come to a standstill and our cities are deserted. Many of us currently have health fears, also about our parents or grandparents. The economic consequences are not yet foreseeable and some are also afraid for their jobs.
I know that many MoAs are already preparing intensively for the upcoming championships and preliminary rounds. And I also see how my friend Leszek Pustulka is working to get the Sauna Colosseum ready in time for the World Championship of Infusion.
Today it is important for me to inform you that we will make the final decision whether we will hold an AUFGUSS-WM this year until 30 April 2020 in the Board. I therefore ask all organizers to allow all preliminary decisions and qualifications to be cancelled by the end of April.
I wish you all good health and endurance.
Your President of the AUFGUSS-WM
Torsten Splanemann-Du Chesne
The official advance booking for guest tickets for the AUFGUSS-WM 2020 has startet!
In view of the worsening of the coronavirus epidemic, the Italian championship is decided to delay the competition until a date to be determined. On the basis of developments in the situation and if conditions permit, it is expected that the qualification will take place in May/June and the final competition at the end of June/July, with the venue and dates being communicated well in advance. We send our best wishes.
