On September 20, 2020 the IASF held their very first online Fall Meeting on the ZOOM platform. The meeting covered all the IASF business including voting on proposals. All proposals passed and will be implemented in the coming IASF Rulebook revision. The updated IASF Rulebook will be published in the Downloads section of this website.
• COVID-19 Update:
I hope this letter finds you all healthy and you are enjoying the end of the summer. We all have been affected one way or the other by the the SARS Cov-2 virus and the world has changed a lot since we last met in Big White/Canada. After a great week with amazing races and dazzling parties we are now exposed to restrictions and even lockdowns without any predictable improvement for the coming months.
Your Board of Directors monitored the situation closely. In early summer we started with numerous online meetings with Tromsø Organisation Committee. We were very optimistic and our goal was to make sure that the WASC 2021 happens. Unfortunately we don’t see the restrictions being lifted in time to complete the amount of planning needed. Hosting a WASC is a big undertaking, both financially and logistically.
In agreement with Tromsø OC, your unified Board of Directors came to the conclusion, that the WASC 2021 will be postponed to March 2023.
We are happy to announce, that Tromsø will honor the prices on the original 2019 bid, except for a 6% inflation adjustment. Your Board of Directors finds this fair and made an unanimous decision to approve the adjustment. We are working with Tromsø Tourism Board on the exact week of the event and will announce it ASAP.
It was not an easy decision, but we are all convinced, that the IASF family will get back stronger than ever in March 2022 at the WASC in Lenzerheide/Switzerland!
This year’s annual IASF Fall Meeting will be online and is scheduled for the weekend of September 18-20, 2020.
I will keep you informed about the proposals, finances and the minutes. Please check SLACK regularly, our website www.airlineski.com and of course your eMail.
On behalf of your Board of Directors I wish you all a beautiful last quarter of the year, stay safe and healthy!
