Skraping Pasman 2020 Delayed to Prevent Coronavirus Spread

Total Croatia News

There has unfortunately been a need to delay 2020’s Skraping event on Pasman in an attempt to stop the spread of coronavirus. 

March the 5th, 2020 – Coronavirus (COVID-19) has caused an unbelievable amount of issues across the globe since its initial appearance in the large Chinese city of Wuhan, from which it is believed to have originated. 

From cancelled flights and strict airport controls to masks, the selling out of toilet paper in certain areas and lockdowns very close to home here in Europe (Italy), the virus has had an incredible effect on global health and the global economy. 

Unfortunately, the much loved Skraping which is traditionally held every year on the island of Pasman near Zadar has been forced into a delay, and it currently isn’t known when the event will be able to safely take place.

Here is the official statement from Skraping Pasman issued on Facebook below:

”We have some bad news! We have received an order from the civil protection headquarters of Zadar County that Skraping needs to be postponed due to the coronavirus situation. To our knowledge, this is the first such decision made by the regional headquarters in Croatia.

Skraping is currently one of three events that have been postponed in the forthcoming period in the Zadar County area.

The new date [for Skraping] will be announced later.

All registered competitors will be notified with instructions on how to proceed further.

We are sorry for this news, but we have done everything in our power to keep Skraping on this Saturday and with all of the precautionary measures against the further spread of the virus employed.”

The organisers of the event and the municipality would like to sincerely apologise to all those who have made travel plans, especially those who are arriving from abroad purely for this year’s Skraping event. The decision is unwelcome and the organisers are aware of the frustration and inconvenience this late decision will likely cause to those who have made plans to arrive on Pasman for the event.
