Spring on Ice Cancelled
We are very sorry to inform you that we had to make the difficult decision to cancel the Spring on Ice competition on the 18th and 19th of April 2020.
To prevent further spreading of the Corona virus, last Thursday the Dutch government imposed strict measurements. Social contacts should be minimized and meetings of more than 100 persons are prohibited, at least to the end of March. The Royal Dutch Skaters Association urgently advises to cancel all skating activities. Also, the recently imposed restrictions on international flights will make it at least difficult, if not impossible, to travel to Hoorn for our international participants. Not to mention any quarantine measures participants might encounter returning home. It is very unlikely that these conditions will be different next month. Due to all this we have decided to stop the preparations for the Spring on Ice competition this year.
By cancelling the competition at this moment, while our organizing costs are still low, we are able to refund the registration fee for all our participants. All received registration fees will be refunded.
We can imagine you are as disappointed as we are, but we see no other options. We hope to welcome you next year and meet each other under better conditions. We wish everyone all the best handling the current situation.
