Announcement regarding the Youth World Championships 2021, Murnau, Germany

The current SARS-CoV-2 pandemic situation seems to be improving slowly, with several parts of the
world still experiencing travel restrictions and lockdowns though. It is very hard to imagine that it
would be possible to play a YWC in August, even in reasonably limited version with adjusted
procedures and accompanying events around the championships, like opening and closing
ceremonies etc. Travel restrictions regarding entry to Germany are loosening at the moment, but still
at present visitors from some potential participating countries would need to do a quarantine at entry.
It is also unclear, which size of events can be held in the district of Garmisch-Partenkirchen in August.
Many teams might further face quarantines at return from Germany. We feel that not all nations
willing to participate in YWC might be able to do so in August. Consequently, it would be unfair to
those WMF member nations if the tournament remained as a “world championship” event. The
organizers would face considerable losses with smaller field of participants, at the same time having
higher costs by guaranteeing a safe championship.

Therefore, the Minigolf Youth World Championships 2021 is hereby cancelled.

Announcement regarding World Adventure Golf Masters 2021, Kuopio, Finland

The deadline announced last month by WMF has now been reached. Unfortunately the circumstances in Finland and around global travelling as per today allow us no chance to guarantee that WAGM 2021 could be organized in agreed schedule and a reasonable field of participants would have a chance to travel to Kuopio without facing unreasonable restrictions. There might be a chance that the situation would just about change locally by then, but it is hard to see the Finnish entry and international travel restrictions being lifted by June.

I have been in regular contact with the local contract partner Bellanpuisto Oy as well as with the Finnish Minigolf Association and want to thank especially Mr. Antti Pakkala, the head of the organizing committee for his good cooperation and always open discussions, during which we have evaluated different scenarios and possibilities. We have together come to a unanimous decision:

World Adventure Golf Masters 2021 is hereby cancelled.
