Volkmarst cancelled!

On the 22nd of April, the organization of the pulling event in Volkmast, Germany announced on their Facebook page that the 2020 edition of their tractor pull is cancelled due to the Covid-19 situation in Germany. The event will not be rescheduled in 2020.

Here is the official statement of the Trecker Treck Volkmarst Team:

As already announced, we will speak again, why and
for which reason, we cannot let our event in 2020 to take place in the usual way.
Yes, the virus is not only going to put a spanner in the works for us this year, but also for many other events, but what should we do .. since the federal and state governments have decided that no major events may take place until August 31, 2020 - so we have to we also cancel our event!Many have already asked why we are not looking for an alternative date this year and do not want the event to take place in 2020 anyway, there are several reasons for this... For example:
Nobody knows when the Corona theme is really and finally off the table!
-Volkmarst is simply part of Father's Day weekend and not September or later...
-It is not possible to plan anything more precise because of point 1, because everything would still be in the stars, even if a new weekend was found ..
-We do not want our 15th-anniversary event to be a letdown and we want to offer you the best that we can

We could now list so many more reasons that speak against a replacement date this year, we just hope you understand our decision and hope to be able to welcome you all to us on May 23, 2020 in the live stream - to help you in this difficult time together ( even if it will only be virtual) Celebrate Volkmarst and in retrospect also enjoy it.

We promise you one thing - this evening will definitely be something special and hopefully unique!
