 Hello Everyone...
I hope that you are remaining safe and healthy through this very surreal time.

As we navigate through the on-going health concerns related to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Board of Directors have arrived at the difficult decision to cancel/postpone FanFair 2020 in Springfield this year. 

This was a decision that  the Board did not take lightly, but we feel it is in the best interest of the health and well-being of our members. We appreciate your patience and understanding while the Board weighed all the facts that went into this decision. We wouldn't want to risk a single life and I'm sure that you wouldn't either.

If you have already submitted your registration, Dick Boswell, will be returning your payment. And if you have already made your hotel reservations, you should cancel those as well. I have not spoken to the hotel about this, but you may be able to roll your reservation over to the new dates ( 7/7-7/10) 2022. We have also secured plenty of double rooms, something that was lacking this year.


FanFair 2021 will remain on schedule for Tulsa and FanFair 2022 will be held in Springfield.

Again, it a very sad day that I write this. I hope that as our year progresses, the wonderful regionals scheduled for later this year  will still be able to take place.  But for FF, we didn't have time on our side to wait and see what states, counties and cities were going to do going forward in re-opening.

This would have been my 25th FanFair and I will miss this event as much as everyone.

Take care, stay healthy...
Annie

With our demographics, one person who is asymptomatic but a carrier could conceivably give the virus to half or more of the membership attending. Good call.
