The Dutch Championship pull on the 2nd of May 2020 in Oud Gastel, the Netherlands is cancelled due to the current COVID-19 situation in the Netherlands.
The official statement from the organization:
Dear visitors, volunteers, partners and participants,
We would like to inform you that due to the Coronavirus, Pulling Gastel will unfortunately not be able to take place in 2020. The organization has been looking for other possibilities for several weeks, but due to a ban on all events in the coming period, we are forced to also event cannot be held on May 2, 2020. This is an annoying and painful decision for us as an organization given the advanced preparations. In view of the current situation and out of respect for the health of our visitors, partners, participants and volunteers, this is currently the only and correct decision.
Of course, we have also looked at other options, such as rescheduling the event to a later time this year. However, finding a correct date on which everything would still nicely coincide was impossible.
Nevertheless, we would like to thank our volunteers, visitors, partners and participants for their efforts and hope to see you all again on May 1, 2021.
