OFFICIAL STATEMENT REGARDING CORONAVIRUS 2021 EDITION
Dear fellow athletes, volunteers, staff members and spectators,
it is – again – with a very heavy heart that we have to announce that we will postpone the Austrian Throwdown from 2021 to 2022. We had intense talks with every party involved and tried to weigh out the best solution for the event. Last year around this time we thought that the CoV19-situation will eventually clear up with summer of 2021. Now it’s clear that this won’t happen. The all time high infection rate in Central Europe with ongoing travel bans and mandatory quarantines, several more infectious mutations on the high rise and the low overall vaccination rate lets us no chance but to postpone the event to the next year once again.
We have a clear vision of what the Austrian Throwdown should be: the biggest, most professional planned and executed CrossFit event in Austria. With the current situation and everybody in lockdown with no foreseeable end we can’t do anything. So we decided to move the event from June 12th and 13th 2021 to a date which fits us and the competition year better: the new date is August 27th and 28th 2022 at the Arena Nova Wiener Neustadt.
ATHLETES / QUALIFIER / FEES REFUND
We decided to sketch out various options for athletes:
DEFAULT OPTION, WITH NO NEED FOR ACTION ON YOUR SIDE:
Leave your qualifier spot valid for 2022. We will redo the qualifier with three new workouts in 2022 and we will just „transfer“ the Qualifier Event on Competition Corner to 2022. So your registration will stay active and there won’t be any additional fees or hidden extra costs. You can just enter your Scores for the 2022 edition when we will announce three brand new workouts.
OPTION B) Opt out of the qualifier and send a refund request for the fee. Please note that your Competition Corner fees are non refundable and 50% of the net qualifier fee will be kept for the arosen circumstances.
OPTION C) Donate your 2021 qualifier fee to help us keep the event up and running for the future and participate in the 2022 qualifier while paying the regular 2022 fee. We’ll work out some “surprise thank you” gifts for you.
You can request a refund or vouchers. Please note that eventbrite© fees are non refundable.
