Dear competitors and spectators,
With everyone’s wellbeing as absolute top priority, Comandante and we at Bocca have decided to postpone the event tomorrow evening. We are sorry to have to do this at such short notice, and we are sorry to those who are disappointed, but we are convinced this is the right decision given the current situation with COVID-19 and the related stress and concern this is causing. Better postponed late in the day than not postponed.
As hosts of the event, it is our responsibility to make sure that everyone present – whether judge, participant, spectator, MC and especially staff at the venue – feels safe and feels happy in the event environment. In the current climate, we cannot guarantee that everyone will feel safe and happy.
Competitors have been contacted directly by email regarding refunds. If you have concerns or haven’t received any email after today, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will make sure to reschedule the event for another date and time once this storm has passed, and we will be sure to communicate it loudly and clearly.
Thank you for your support and enthusiasm for your local coffee community, and thank you for your understanding. In the meantime, we are still happy to serve you a good cup of coffee and we are looking forward to see you in store or online!
