ON-SNOW IFSS/WSA WORLDCHAMPIONSHIPS 2022
We are delighted to announce that the joint IFSS/WSA World Championships in Sweden that had to be cancelled in 2021 due to the Covid-19 pandemic have been rescheduled to March 2022.

As was planned for 2021, the IFSS/WSA World Championships 2022 will take place in three venues (Särna, Ramundberget and Åsarna) in central Sweden. All-breed and purebred teams will be able to compete for World Championship titles in Skidog, Sled Sprint, Mid-Distance and Long-Distance classes.

The exact details are still being worked on and further information will be released as soon as the negotiations with venues and sponsors have been finalised.

For now, we would like to wish you, your families and four-legged friends a peaceful Holiday season and a happy and healthy New Year.

NEW date for postponed 2020 General Assembly – March 15th 2021

The exceptional delay in the date of the 2020 General Assembly is not provided for in the By Laws. Advice has been requested from the Legal Commission and the instructions given to me and the Council was that the existing complete Calling Notice must be followed in accordance with Article C.5.1 of the IFSS By Laws, therefore the postponed 2020 General Assembly new date will be in March 2021. Calling Notice has been sent out December 14th 2020. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic with travel and meeting restrictions worldwide the postponed 2020 General Assembly will be an online meeting. Detailed instructions will be sent out to all delegates prior to March 15th, 2021.

Sincerely

Helen Lundberg

IFSS President

ON-SNOW IFSS/WSA WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS 2021 – CANCELLED

It is with great sadness that we have to announce that the first joint IFSS/WSA World Championships in Sweden in March 2021 will not be going ahead. We had desperately hoped that the situation would be different but the ongoing Covid-19 crises across the globe means that we are unable to offer fair races that are accessible to all competitors. As a result, we have decided to cancel the 2021 World Championships in Särna, Ramundberget and Åsarna.

Conversations about future championships are ongoing and we will provide a further update on this before the end of the year.

IFSS General Assembly postponed

The online General Assembly that was to take place November 23 2020 has been postponed - the new date will be announced shortly.

Due to unforeseen technical reasons and the Covid-19 pandemic situation in Sweden that has worsen the last days the decision has been taken by Council to postpone the online General Assembly. With increased restrictions on travel and meetings, it has been a struggle to coordinate how Council members along with technicians could safely administer the meeting, because even though it is an online meeting for all delegates, council members must be present to coordinate and run the meeting. This did not prove to be manageable given the current situation. I do not want to risk that anyone becomes infected and sick.

I trust you all respect and understand this decision of the Council. These are unpredictable times that we all live in and some unpredictable decisions have to be made and I hope this does not cause too much inconvenience to the delegates.

Sincerely

Helen Lundberg

IFSS President
