Dear Members and Contract Partners
Please find below a communication received from the Finnish Kennel Club about the Junior Open World Championship of Agility, scheduled to take place from 9 to 12 July 2020. Can we please ask you to inform your own members (clubs, competitors, etc.) ?
“FCI JOAWC 2020 is a competition for children and adolescents. Even though coronavirus is not expected to hit that age group as severely as some others, it is still one of the most vulnerable age groups in general. The Finnish Kennel Club and the Finnish Agility Association want to act as proactively and responsibly as possible in order to prevent the spread of the virus. With regret we have to accept that planning and organizing the event is no longer possible in these exceptional circumstances. The Finnish Kennel Club would, however, like to apply for the FCI JOAWC 2022 from the FCI. The Finnish Agility Association would be more than happy to host this event in 2022.”
Once available, further information will be circulated.
We thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
Please keep safe, and save your health and the others’ too.
FCI Executive Director
