As you know, we are in the ninth week of national lockdown in South Africa due to COVID-19. Although lockdown has been downgraded to Level 3, based on the phased approach that government has implemented, it is unlikely that the event industry will resume operations in the near future.
As we cannot predict when social gatherings of more than 100 people will be permitted, we have made the decision to postpone the Glacier Storms River Traverse which was scheduled to take place from 8 to 10 August 2020. It is our intention to host the event in 2021.
We care about your health and well-being
Our primary concern is your health and well-being, and that of our crew members and support service employees. We are already working on new innovations regarding the presentation of future events, keeping health and safety our top priority. To this end, specific protocols will be implemented.
However, as ready as we may be, we are subject to lockdown rules, and our decision to postpone was not taken lightly. August is just three months away, and in line with current protocols, we have made the hard and necessary decision not to proceed with the 2020 event.
Looking to 2021
You have come to expect our event to be of high quality, and it has become a highlight in the event calendars of many riders. It is our intention to continue to meet – and hopefully exceed – your expectations, as we’ve always done. There will be no compromises as we plan for an enjoyable Glacier Storms River Traverse 2021 experience.
Dryland, much like all companies in the non-essential industries, has not entirely been spared the substantial and sudden negative impact of COVID-19. However, we would like to propose the following options to all paid entrants for this event in the most positive way possible. Please see your options, listed below:
1. Your fully paid entry can be transferred to the 2021 event at the 2020 rate.
2. There will be no additional charge in 2021.
3. Your entry can be sold and transferred to someone else, with no substitution fee charged.
4. The value of your paid entry can be used as a credit to enter for the Glacier Cradle Traverse 2021.
5. A cash refund of 50% of your entry will be allowed.
Your support means a lot to us
We appreciate your support for our events, the crew members and the support service providers behind them during this time. We look forward to sharing many more memories with you in the future.
Thank you for your understanding in this regard.
Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm the refund option that you choose or if you have any questions.
Stay positive, eat healthily and keep active!
