Finally, the year 2020 is coming to an end.

What a year! Many of us have suffered during this year.

How often have we said: “is there light at the end of the tunnel”?

YES, dear friends, there is light! Some of our countries have started vaccinating and other countries will start soon.

Will this open the door to our competitions? Let us hope so, because 2020 only gave us 1 championship (ESC) in Vienna in January. All other championships (EYC, EWC, EMC and the ECC) had to be postponed.

I am sure it must have been difficult/strange for you and your athletes to stay home. I can assure you that my Presidium and I look forward to the day where we can meet physically and be at championships.  You must have the same feeling.

We hope to see all of you soon again at our championships and tournaments.

On behalf of my Presidium, I wish you and your beloved a merry Christmas and may the New Year 2021 bring you love, happiness and most important, health.
