We are almost in the full swing of Spring and the year of events are about to kick off. We are very mindful of the COVID restrictions and will approach the 2021 year accordingly. We will plan each event by:
- Checking local guidelines before we plan each event.
- Briefing all members/guests about precautions before the event starts; during the event, remind guests of these precautions and ensure they are followed.
- Choosing outdoor venues over indoor spaces – if indoors, ensure the area is well-ventilated.
- Minimizing crowding, designating seats/places and enforcing physical distancing of at least three feet.
- Providing all necessary supplies – hand sanitizer or soap/water, tissues, closed-lid bins, masks, etc.
Most events will likely have restrictions which require masks and social distancing at a minimum. Every member must understand that all events are voluntary and at your own risk and we will see reduced restrictions for those with Vaccines in the near future. We currently plan to conduct the following events:
