Dear Members,

Based on the weather conditions the World Sleddog Association (WSA) as host and the community of Zuberec and the sled dog sport club Flying Husky as organizers had do make the difficult decision to cancel the WSA World Championships Sprint and Mid-Distance 2020, which were due to take place in Zuberec from 6- 9 February 2020.

Following this cancellation, Helen Lundberg, President of the IFSS, has reached out to the WSA members to invite mushers with Nordic Breeds to compete in the Registered Nordic Breed classes at the IFSS European Championship in Åsarna, Sweden from February 19-23rd.

Åsarna offers beautiful trails and great conditions. The Swedish Championship was organised there a few weeks ago. The trail was very much appreciated by all participants and the last days have brought further snow.

The deadline for registrations is tomorrow (5 February) and entries have to go through your local IFSS member federation.
For SDAS members, this is the BSSF (British Sled dog Sports Federation)
