We have now consulted with all of the participants at the BISFed 2017 European Championships, and a significant majority support the proposed date change.
There will be minimal, if any, fallout for either of the World Open events in Kansas or Bangkok. We also have a waiting list for both events so these events will not be affected.
The Regional Championships are important events in the BISFed Competition System, and we want to be able to guarantee the best possible experience for elite athletes at our sanctioned competitions. We will be able to guarantee a much more professional event for all participants if we approve the proposed date change. There is a real danger that for reasons beyond BISFed’s control, an event in June will be a logistical disaster.
The new dates for the event will be: 25th October 2017 – 2nd November 2017
