March 2020 - TANGO Australia news
Tango Mendoza musicians performingDear <<First Name>>

2020 will indeed be a year to remember!

Last month it was the cancellation of the Oceania Tango Tango Congress & Championship which was to be held mid-March in Auckland New Zealand because of the Corona Virus. Since then the virus has become a daily headline and is causing anxiety and concern throughout the world. It has now reached South America. 

I have not received news of any other cancellations or changes and we can only hope that it does not become a pandemic by the time I write the next newsletter. 

Best wishes, 

The Melbourne Tango Weekend is on 27-29 March - watch the video for more info

"After careful consideration, it is with great regret that we have decided to postpone the Oceania Tango Congress & Championship (OTCC), which was scheduled to be held 19th – 22nd March 2020.
Our decision is a direct consequence of the recent outbreak of the Corona virus in China and its spread throughout the world. The head office of the World Tango Championship in Buenos Aires has acknowledged the risks and supports our postponement decision."
