Iceland Open F3F 2021 postponed

Dear friends

The battle against Covid-19 has not been progressing as well as we’d hope for and although the current situation in Iceland is okay there are strict regulations being enforced, both domestically and on the border. The border regulations are in effect at least until May of this year and require a 5 day quarantine after arrival to Iceland plus a test on arrival and again before the quarantine is lifted after those 5 days.

So with that in mind we have no other choice than to postpone the Iceland Open until 2022 and hoping the Covid-19 situation will be well in hand by then and some resemblance of normal will have been restored to our lives.

The new dates for Iceland Open will be April 29th – May 1st 2022.

If you would still like to participate then you don’t have to do anything as we’ll move the scheduled date and your registration but if you would like a refund please let me know and I’ll start the process on PayPal.

I hope to see you all at next year’s Iceland Open.

Best regards
Sverrir Gunnlaugsson CD
