Cancellation of the World Championships in Germany

Following an email received from FITE on the 11th February cancelling the 2021 TREC World Championships that had been due to take place in Westershain, Germany, a number of points are worth noting:-

  1. It was the German Organisers that cancelled the Championships not FITE.
    FITE were just relayed the message to all NETOs.
  2. FITE still have a declared intention to hold the World Championships this year, if at all possible, and have asked if any NETO is in a position to offer to organise the Championships and to let FITE know as soon as they can.
  3. Whilst it is unlikely that any other country will be able to host the Championships at such short notice, it remains a possibility. Whether individual countries will be allowed to attend is another question for each nation.
  4. At this stage the IRWG will continue to prepare for competing at the Championships.
