The EDC reports and balances were shared, and new Statute and Annex I (with Ordinary and Associated Members) were approved. The ongoing European Under27 and Veteran Championships were presented.

An annual fee of 50 € for EDC Federations was established, which will be canceled in case that FMJD will restore the 50% of annual fees (120 €) to the Continental Confederations, that needs resource (also little) to act.
At 18.30, having been discussed all the points in agenda and all the requests of the GA, the President Carlo Bordini declared the GA works closed, thanking everbody for their participation.


A gala dinner was offered to the participants at the EDC GA.
