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 Court´s 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 case´s 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 Court´s 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.

Mike Haslam
IDBF Executive President

    Dear friends of the Dragon Boat Community of Europe, to be a “community” means to be a team, to be friends, to know each other and to support each other. In my visit in Armenia I met people that love our sport, that want to grow, that want to develop also the social part with a specific adaptive dragon boat project. Last week end some Armenian Athlets were in Spain and next Monday ArmDBF will enter the EDBF EC 2018 in Brandenburg. Happy birthday to the President of the Armenian Dragon Boat Federation, Makar Sargsyan, today 32 year old and my best wishes to continue in his commitment for our sport. #newgenerations Claudio Schermi EDBF President

    Berlino - meeting with the Organizing Committee of the next European Nations Championships in Brandenburg from 23 to 26th August. With me Slawek Borucki, in his key role within our sport. He is responsible for registration, race program and EDBF web site. Ute Becker and Gitta Weber are doing a great job and all details and criticism are under control. A lot of provisional Entries and other are expected very soon. Looking forward to see in Brandenburg all the top Paddlers of the dragon boat community of Europe. Following the request received we will reconsider the possibility to add the class open in Senior C standard boat. Claudio Schermi EDBF President
