Christchurch Modern Jive Championships

*** Chch Champs 2020: POSTPONED ***

Yep, it's that announcement you've all been expecting. In the interests of physical distancing for the health of our community we will not be running the 2020 Chch Champs in April.

We apologise to everyone who got their earlybird registration, flights and accommodation sorted when we asked them to. You did a stellar job and we were looking forward to the most amazing weekend.

But wait - we know how much we all want the Champs to happen, and being the optimistic souls we are, we have booked a new date with our venue, 2-4 October 2020. Of course we don't have a crystal ball to know what the world will be like in October, but let's give it a go!

You can choose to receive a refund or transfer your entry to October. If October is cancelled we can then either refund or transfer to the following Champs date.
If you want a refund please follow the instructions and cancel your registration on the web site here:
All registration payments not refunded will automatically be held for the next event.
For those of you who booked with the YMCA, they have a free cancellation policy up to 24hrs before your stay. They told us that you can do it easily when you access your booking on their web site.
This could be a tough one, but get in touch with the airline. It sounds like they may be allowing credit for the tickets to be used on another flight. Let us know if they require proof the event was cancelled/postponed due to COVID-19 or if there is anything else we can do.

We hope that you and your families stay well. We can't wait to get dancing with you again as soon as it's sensible. Fingers crossed for October!

Kia Kaha,
Deb and Matt
