Pandemic through 2021?

Elena CIVL <<elenfilon>> writes:

2020 has been a slow year. All our Cat 1s have been postponed or cancelled. Most Cat 2s have been postponed or cancelled. Competition flying is back, but Covid-19 is unpredictable, some first waves are still rolling and some second waves are getting stronger.

There is no way to anticipate what will happen in 2021. We will take it as it comes and rely on national federations to issue the rules on their territory very much like we did in 2020.

2021 Championships

We have four confirmed World championships in 2021

⋅ April 18 to 27: HG XC Class Sport in Groveland, USA
⋅ May 22 to June 5: PG XC in Chamoussey, France
⋅ July 18 to 31: HG XC in Krushevo, N. Macedonia
⋅ October 7 to 16: PG Accuracy in Prilep, N. Macedonia
⋅ Date to be defined: PG Aerobatic in Trasaghis, Italy

Only the PG Aerobatic had a proper and well-run test event in 2019. No special requirement is needed for the 2020 postponed event to take place in 2021.

The test events for the PG XC, HG XC and PG Accuracy were cancelled. The CIVL Bureau has the authority to allow a championship without a test event (Section 7 Common 2.4.5). The Bureau has decided to do so but will request the following:

The championships must be preceded by official training days Each competition will define in its local regulations, to be published six months before the event with the CIVL Bureau approval, the training days specifics.

As a principle

⋅ There should be no less than 3 training days
⋅ The CIVL Stewards will be present
⋅ Safety and weather briefing will be available
⋅ Transportation to take-off will be available
⋅ Assistance at take-off will be available, including first-aid personal
⋅ In XC, live trackers will be available
⋅ In Accuracy, a target will be available
⋅ Services may come at a cost

The aim is

⋅ To test the organisation
⋅ To allow pilots to get familiar with the sites in a secured environment

2022 Championships

These will take part at dates to be confirmed.

⋅ PG XC Pan-American in Governador Valadares, Brazil
⋅ PG XC European in Pantelej-Nis, Serbia
⋅ PG Accuracy in Taldykorgan, Kazakhstan
⋅ PG Accuracy European in Sibiu, Romania
⋅ HG XC European Class 1 in Monte Cucco, Italy
⋅ HG XC Pan American Class 1 in Big Spring, USA

Test events were ran, except for the PG XC Pan-American.

No new test-events will be required, although organisers might organise some in 2021. The PG XC organisers are planning to do one in Nish on July 23-31.


The following 2022 championships are still open. Bids should be received before December 1, 2020.

⋅ PG XC Asian Oceanic
⋅ HG XC Class 1 Women, Class 2 and 5

2023 World Championships

Bids are open in all disciplines and should be received before December 1, 2020.

But…

If any 2021 World Championship is cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the organiser will be offered to organise the 2023 championship. The organiser will have to commit at the same time as the 2021 cancellation will be decided.

Such postponed championships will have the priority over the bids approved by the 2021 plenary.

In other words, bidders for 2023 World championships should be aware that if the 2021 championships are postponed to 2023, their successful bids will be cancelled.

All the US based meets had test meets that were run in 2019.

Dr. Fauci states that we will likely be dealing with the pandemic through 2021.

Dr. Anthony Fauci said Wednesday, amid a record-shattering spike in new cases, that everyday life for many Americans may not return to normal until the end of 2021 or into 2022.

However, Fauci stated he thinks the United States won't “start having some semblance of normality” until “the end of 2021 and perhaps into the next year.”

Fauci noted the United States is “getting worse and worse,” as evidenced by an average of 73,094 new cases per day over the last week, an increase of nearly 40% from two weeks earlier.

Dr. Fauci also blamed the politicization of face coverings and the hostility toward mask-wearing for playing a significant role in the spread of Covid-19 throughout the United States.

This is what our Aussie airline carrier was saying 4 mths ago...

Qantas to cut at least 6,000 jobs as part of coronavirus recovery plans, Alan Joyce reveals

By business reporters Nassim Khadem, Michael Janda and Stephanie Chalmers
Posted Thursday 25 June 2020 at 8:59am, updated Thursday 25 June 2020 at 5:07pm

"Airline revenues have collapsed, entire fleets have been grounded. And the world's biggest carriers are taking extreme action just to survive."

Mr Joyce said the crisis had hit Qantas "very hard" and that "the impact will be felt for a long time".

He said international flights were unlikely to resume until July next year.

"The 6,000 jobs [going] are jobs that we don't see coming back for a long time," Mr Joyce said.

Qantas' fleet of 12 massive Airbus A380 aircraft that used to fly on long haul routes will be grounded for three years.

The aircraft are being stored in the Mojave desert in the United States, Mr Joyce said. because the dry conditions minimise corrosion.



Forget cherry picking to prove your political bias- The Corona virus just exposed the truth about America to the rest of us...

Can you really understand what must change in the USA?

Here in my opinion is the most honest and brutal description of a country run by giant corporations with over 300 million consumers ..

Jay Z wrote:Dr. Fauci, March 8, 2020: "Right now people should not be wearing masks. Wearing a mask might make people feel better, but it's not providing the perfect protection that they think it is."

US Surgeon General, Feb. 2020: "Seriously people, STOP BUYING MASKS! They are not effective in preventing catching coronavirus."

Dr. David Navarro, Special Envoy of the World Health Organization: [Lockdowns have created] "...a global catastrophe, doubled world poverty and childhood malnutrition. WE APPEAL TO ALL WORLD LEADERS TO STOP USING LOCKDOWNS AS YOUR PRIMARY METHOD OF COVID CONTROL."

https://youtu.be/0CRkNA3uPT4?t=33
It's people like you who are contributing to these increased spikes. A sign of intelligence is the ability to examine prior positions, re-evaluate, and change to reflect updated knowledge.

Masks work.

Lock-downs are effective as last resorts when the health systems become catastrophically overwhelmed. Phased lock-downs work to lower the ability to have superspreader events at larger gatherings.

Anyways, keep displaying your ignorance, I suppose we won't have any competitions for another two to three years at this point.

Totally true --- but when Biden opens the gates to American borders , and 1.5 million
central americans come chagrin in Every Year , to get that Free medical and food stamps ;
USA will become a complete and total Dump, that's not worth living in.

USA is already in debt to the tune of $23.3 trillion ; so where is the money
to support an extra small city Every Year , gonna come from ?

I don't like Trump for Squat ; the alternative is Way worst !

I'm no great social scientist, but here in Oz nearly all immigrants want to work and provide for a better life for their family. Since my family were economic immigrants to Oz, 58yrs ago, I can see both sides. I do believe if new arrivals will assimilate into their new society that's a good thing. Sometimes it's the second generation that becomes most Austrayanised.Their are many links to "prove" whatever views people have on immigration and here is a just the facts one..

Or more for the USA, short term immunity and the anti-vaxers could keep it going for more than that.

Work will set you free, right Billie?

Haven't seen you bitchin' about Trump adding 4 trillion to that debt. Wonder what will change in 2021 when you complain about it again?

Haven't seen you complaining about Trump getting free medical care at Walter Reed. Why you complaining about immigrants getting it? Trump's wife is an immigrant getting free medical care for her Covid. Why ain't you complaining about that?

Here's an idea, we can tax the billionaires who gained an extra trillion in worth over the past 6 months to pay some of those small cities' employees wages and help out the small folks in the meantime. You didn't have a problem with Trump paying the farmers, so I expect you shouldn't have a problem with paying the folks who keep the streets clean.

This respected Aussie journalist says what most overseas people are thinking watching your politics..
" The world needs Biden to win because Donald Trump has made it a more dangerous place and cannot heal the United States", says Nine Political Editor Chris Uhlmann.

Well, Bille, it looks like Nevada's is going to be final state to determine the outcome of the election.

The future is in your hands.

As of Nov. 4, 2020 (The Day After) at 8:30pm, Nevada is the closest race with 75% reporting and only a difference of 7,847 votes.

They say the Nevada tally will be updated the morning of November 5th.

I checked my ballot status on the Nevada Secretary of State website today.

The website shows they received my ballot but have not counted my vote.

I dropped off my completed ballot at the Desert Breeze polling station on October 23, 2020.

Waiting to be counted.
