Tough thing to bring up, what are your thoughts, with everything going on in the world do you think we will have Fan Fair this year?

I don't have a crystal ball-- but I think it is likely that this thing will not go away in a couple or three weeks, based upon what the scientists are saying.  While I sure hate the idea of regionals and even Fan Fair being postponed or cancelled, I do know that this is just our hobby.  Health and safety have to be the first priorities born in mind, I would think, when those decisions must be made.  Hope you and your family-- stay safe and health.  I know it is
a challenge for all of us adapting to these new realities.

As of this time Fan Fair is on. We will keep you informed of any changes. Lets all just try and stay calm, buy some toilet paper and stay home if possible. We have until the end of May to cancel, if needed. There will be no penalties to the club or to you for cancelling reservations. Book your rooms,you can cancel later if needed.

Here's a useful tip. Fans blow away the air that might carry viruses.
Keep 'em going!
It's too bad about the fan events, even though I never get to attend them. I enjoy them from afar.

Cheers,
Bill

The wife got lucky and found 2 packs of 12 super soft. That and copious amounts of beans stashed away, we're good for at least a month.

Makes me think of Jodie Foster in "Contact"....

Sitting on the throne constantly saying "good to go"  with LSD infused toilet paper and a rash of worm holes!
...but I digress....  could be cabin fever setting in...

Not sure what scientists you are listening too.  This virus will be here a long time.  The timeline the NIH's Dr. Anthony Fauci says 12 to 18 months.  That will be the amount of time for herd immunity or a vaccine to be proven and produced.  These are the facts.

Read his statement again....he said this will NOT go away in a couple or three weeks.
