Grüß Dich,

der Winter macht uns einen gehörigen Strich durch die Rechnung. Der Skibetrieb am Hochgrat wurde schon anfang letzter Woche eingestellt und die wenigen noch ridebaren Bereiche sind stark vereist. Aufgrund des nun erhöhten Unfallrisikos müssen wir das German Speedriding Open am 19. Februar leider absagen. Solltest Du Deine Teilnahmegebühr bereits überwiesen haben, wird Dir das Geld in den kommenden Tagen zurückerstattet.

Wir versuchen, noch in dieser Saison ein neues Event zu organisieren, aber können momentan noch nichts versprechen. Wir bleiben dran und geben Dir Bescheid, sobald sich etwas tut.

Wir wünschen Dir weiterhin blue Skies, safe Rides … und vor allem jede Menge Neuschnee!

Dein Speedflying-Verband
