General Sir Patrick Sanders KCB CBE DSO ADC Gen
President UK Armed Forces Winter Sports Association
Winter Season 2020/2021
It is with much regret that owing to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic both the Inter Services Snow Sports Championships (ISSSC) planned to be held in Meribel, February 2021 and the Inter Services Ice Sports Championships (ISISC) planned for Konigssee, March 2021, have been cancelled.
The Organising Committee of the UKAFWSA have considered their decision in great detail, recognising the disappointment that cancellation would cause. However, faced with two aims, one to deliver high quality winter sports events for servicemen and women and the other to fulfil our obligations to the country in a time of crisis, regrettably it seems that we cannot achieve both safely.
Committee members are investigating opportunities for UK based, smaller scale events later in the season as a way to keep the flame alive in 2021. If competitors do have any ideas that might help, please contact your discipline managers or feed in through your single Service committees.
The UKAFWSA competitors and committee staff remain grateful and indebted to our supporters, sponsors and resorts that host us alike. We trust that all will keep faith with us, wish you well in uncertain times and hope to see you in the Alps again in 2022.
