Dear friends of 20.000 Pieghe,
Just about one month before the eagerly awaited 12th edition of 20.000 Pieghe, the Italian State has not yet approved decrees that are useful to the planning of sports-tourism events like ours and will probably not do so soon. However, even if this happens, our event would have to comply with regulations that are difficult to respect and are, in any case, irreconcilable with the normal course of our event.
Furthermore, at present we do not have certainties about how hotels and restaurants involved in our event will be able to operate as well as about permits that municipalities and parks should issue for all crossings of historic centers etc.
For all these reasons I regret to announce that the 20.000 Pieghe schedule for May 27-30, 2020, will be postponed to May 29-June 1 2021, always in Sardinia and with the same program and scheduling of the 2020 edition.
Despite the fact that our association has sustained a huge economic loss due to the organizational costs incurred in 2020 (which will never be fully recuperated), it has decided to protect participants as foreseen by the legislative decree to which we have added something more, namely:
- To all members who have paid off their participation to 20.000 Pieghe 2020 we shall give a voucher, of the same amount as the amount paid, valid for registration to 20.000 Pieghe 2021 (as prescribed by the legislative decree mentioned above). Furthermore, given that the 2021 edition will cost 40€ more ( 730€ instead of 690€) the organizer will grant the subscribers an additional 40€ voucher so that they don’t have to pay the price increase and have their participation guaranteed.
- To all those who have made a partial payment for registration to 20.000 Pieghe 2020 and, not having paid off, would have lost the downpayment amount, we shall give a voucher of the same amount, valid for registration to the 2021 edition. In this case payoff must be performed within December 7 2020. Beyond this term, registration to 20.000 Pieghe 2021 will expire and no refund will be given.
I wish to highlight that the legislative decree in force prevails upon event rules and imposes postponing events up to a year later as long as they are held unchanged.
I thought about moving the event to September 2020 ( it would gave been more convenient for our association) but in this eventuality we would not be able to guarantee the right weather conditions for the event and, in any case, we would have penalized many participants who, having run out of vacations, would not be able to participate.
In any case, all members will be contacted by phone by Manuela Verardi (email@example.com Mob. +39 3428824920) in order to understand what their individual needs are and if we are able to satisfy them.
A big salute to all, hoping that we shall soon be able to hug each other
