The Organizing Committee of ECC 2021 and the European Bowling Federation regret to announce the cancellation of the farewell banquet scheduled for Sunday evening, by joint decision and as a protective health measure against Covid-19.
The Organizing Committee was informed late on Saturday evening about a possible Covid-19 case regarding a delegation member and responded at once, following step by step the established health protocol: The possible patient was treated immediately and, after testing positive, all ECC 2021 accredited delegation members and staff underwent Covid-19 rapid tests at their hotels on Sunday morning, before being able to enter “Mega Place” Bowling Center for the final day of competition.
In addition, the number of the available buses and minibuses were doubled up and stricter measures were implemented (vehicles sanitation, double masks for passengers) for the safe transportation of every delegation.
The ECC 2021 OC and EBF are sad for having to cancel the farewell banquet, but understand that health protection is above everything else. We sincerely hope that in the near future we will have another opportunity to gather up at Chania once again for a similar bowling celebration, in safer conditions for everyone!
