Yellow Target 2020 cancelled
Dear team leaders and athletes
We would like to inform you about the final decision on the current status of our skydiving competition “Yellow Target 2020“:
Unfortunately, we have to cancel the event for this year!
CHOIVD 19 leaves its traces..
After long discussions between the members of the organization, the host drop zone and the local authorities (Canton Ticino), all parties came to the conclusion that the current situation and its development in various areas (local, national and international) could not guarantee a risk-free, or at least a low risk, realization of the event in a Covid-19 environment. Besides many obvious risk management considerations there are various local special regulations recently published by the Canton of Ticino and the BAG (Swiss national health authority), which make an execution for an international competition very difficult or even impossible.
We regret with a heavy heart that we cannot perform one of the largest parachute competition this year and that we cannot offer to many athletes the platform to present world class level in accuracy skydiving.
Important Note: Electronic payments, which are already transferred by the registered teams will be refunded in the following days.
We are very sorry that we miss you this year in Locarno. We would like to invite all athletes, team leaders and teams for next year to register soon again for our event in 2021. Together we will be able to master this difficult situation and we hope next year we will be able again to celebrate world class in accuracy skydiving at the Yellow Target 2021 in Locarno.
Please stay healthy and fit
With best regards
Your Locarno “ Yellow Target Team 2020”
