Dear friends of 1000 SASSI,
A little less than two months after the eagerly awaited 1st edition of the 1000 SASSI, the Italian State has not yet approved a legislative decree that allows tourist events like ours to take place and will probably not even issue it shortly. However, even if this happens, our event would have to comply with regulations that are difficult to respect and are, in any case, irreconcilable with the normal course of our event.
Furthermore, at present we do not have certainties about how hotels and restaurants involved in our event will be able to operate as well as about permits that municipalities and parks should issue for all crossings.
For all these reasons, I regret to announce that the first edition of 1000 SASSI will be postponed to next year with the same characteristics to the current program; the new date will be communicated to you shortly but will be set for June 2021.
Despite the fact that our association has sustained a huge economic loss due to the organizational costs incurred in 2020 (which will never be fully recuperated), it has decided to protect the members as foreseen by article 88 of the DL 18/2020 published on 17.03.2020 in the Official Journal, allowing, in this particular circumstance, the repetition of the event through the granting of a voucher for the purchase of a service of equivalent value. Therefore, we will do the following:
1- To all members who have paid off their participation to 1000 SASSI 2020 we shall give a voucher, of the same amount as the amount paid, valid for registration to 1000 SASSI in 2021 (as prescribed by the legislative decree mentioned above).
2- To all those who have made a partial payment for registration to 1000 SASSI 2020 and, not having paid off, would have lost the downpayment amount, we shall give a voucher of the same amount, valid for registration to the 2021 edition. In this case payoff must be performed within December 7 2020. Beyond this term, registration to 1000 SASSI 2021 will expire and no refund will be given.
We thought about moving the event to September 2020 but in this eventuality we would not be able to guarantee the right weather conditions for the event and, in any case, we would have penalized many participants who, having run out of vacations, would not be able to participate.
In any case, all participants will be contacted by phone by Manuela Verardi
(firstname.lastname@example.org Mob. +39 3428824920) in order to understand if they have particular needs that we are able to satisfy.
As soon as it is allowed to schedule rides again we will communicate further news about 1000 SASSI
A big salute to all, hoping that we shall soon be able to hug each other
