Dear Associates and other participants in Oscar Mike - Golden Sand:
We live in difficult times, we live in uncertain times, it is a fact.
Which means deciding clearly and lucidly, with an associative sense, on who like us, promotes the sport he loves, Airsoft.
The COVID-19 virus has been classified as a pandemic, due to the severity and speed with which it spreads throughout the world.
Portugal is no exception. Today our Prime Minister was categorical in saying that on April 9, 2020, there will be a reassessment of the health status of our country. Therefore, roughly a month before Oscar Mike - Golden Sand.
As understood, institutions such as the chamber, civil protection, firefighters will be in operational contingency, dealing with other realities that could be very serious, during the coming months.
On the other hand, it is not possible to gauge what impact we will have, on the logistical basis necessary for the good performance of the event, we refer to food, fuel and other goods necessary for the event.
Everything considered, postponing the Oscar Mike - Golden Sand, is for this direction, an act of civism and protection of public health.
We refuse to be irresponsible, immature and ignore the possible damage that this pandemic could cause to all of us and our acquaintances and family, so we will not create conditions conducive to the spread of the Corona Virus.
We cannot do Oscar Mike - Golden Sand in May, but we will do the event this year.
As expected, we will return the money already paid by those that like us, wanted an Oscar Mike in May.
It is our intention, we reiterate, to hold the Oscar Mike - Golden Sand event later this year, as soon as public health circumstances permit.
We would like to thank all of you for your trust and attention.
The Direction of the Lusitanian Airsoft Association
Oscar Mike Staff
