We are aware of the situation regarding COVID-19.
We communicate with the VRA and publish current information on Facebook.
The new payment deadline is April 30, 2020.
Statement of Aztek Davide Parolin for FB "VRA - Vulcan Riders Association International" on 10 March 2020:
below you can find an official communication from the Presidents of VRA CZ and VRA SK, respectively Dzuba and Magnet, regarding the actual situation of COVID-19 and the incoming 16th VRA International Rally.
To them, our special thanks for their availability and prompt cooperation.
We are aware of the situation in Europe in relation to the spread of COVID19 and we want to address this risk with the upmost responsibility. First we propose to extend the date for registration of participants and fee payment until 30.4.2020.
The international meeting will take place on the scheduled date only if COVID19 has been completely suppressed by that date.
If the situation does not change, we will be forced to cancel the meeting definitively. Should this occour 100% of all funds would be returned to the VRA members.
Payments for participation in the international meeting cannot be made on the spot.
If the meeting takes place within the planned deadline, we must provide items related to the meeting (badges, T-shirts, patches, ...) These must be put into production no later than 4.5.2020. The amount of these items depends on the number of participants who will pay the fee to attend the meeting by April 30, 2020. Since the production of individual items takes almost 2 months (such as badges), this term is final for us even with the risk that the items will not be ready in time.
Payments for participation in the international meeting until April 30, 2020 are also important to ensure food for a specific number of people. It would not be right to provide meals for all "registered" participants if eventually only those who paid the fee in advance would come. It would be a financial loss for the clubs VROC CZ and VROC SK.
Our VRA friends do not have to worry about losing their money. If the situation around COVID19 does not allow us to carry out the international meeting, all the money will be refunded. However, due to the above mentioned reasons, the payment of fees for participation in the meeting must still be made by 30.4.2020.
