Hungarian Dragon Boat Federation case against Hungarian Canoe Federation clarified

03 February 2012 - 
Further to my email of 18 January 2012 headed "Hungarian Dragon Boat Federation Win Court Case", I write to explain that this heading was somewhat misleading due to a language misunderstanding. In fact the Court case was actually "dismissed" for procedural reasons. Nevertheless, in the Courts reasoning the status of the HDBF was fully justified.

That is, in the reasoning of the Court as disclosed in the HDBF Press Release attached to my earlier email, the standing and mandate of the HDBF as the sole National Governing Body for Dragon Boating in Hungary was confirmed. This was the main aim of the HDBF in bringing such a case in the first place.

Given such rulings and as the HDBF had not asked the Court to ban the HCF from practicing Dragon Boating, they decided not to appeal against their cases rejection.

For the HDBF the rulings by the Court in confirming their status as the legally recognized governing body for the Sport in Hungary, was the most important thing.

All the details in the earlier HDBF Press Release have been re-confirmed by the HDBF as correct and the reasoning which formed part of the Courts judgment, is now the basic reference for any future court case concerning the Sport in Hungary. Please make the above facts clear to your own Members (including the email heading) and also through the same medium of distribution that you may have given to my email of 18 January 2012.

    Fun fact: The EDBF was founded by five countries (Netherlands, Sweden, Italy, United Kingdom and Germany). The traditional dragon boat festival takes place on the 5th day of the 5th month. Coincidence or not? ☺

    European Dragon Boat Federation added 5 new photos.
    At the EDBF Convention in Belgrade we decided to run a competition to design a new logo for the EDBF. We would be most grateful if you would share this message with your dragon boat family as we may have some budding designers out there. Alternatively go to our Facebook page "European Dragon Boat Association" and share our message. All logos are to be submitted to secretary@edbf.org by 31/12/17.

      European Dragon Boat Federation Times keep changing and innovation is a regular feaure of our mission. We love the old EDBF logo. It was designed by our friend Fabio Masi in 1990. Today we should have new ideas, all togheter with the Dragon Boat Community of Europe, starting from a new Logo to represent our wish to achieve progress and promote innovation for a rejuvenation of our sport and for a susteinable long term growth.
