Hello Blue Spaders,
In light of recent events, we have made a decision to cancel our 2020 Annual Reunion in Las Vegas. As of now, our reunions will move forward one year, so we will hold our 2021 reunion in Las Vegas and our 2022 reunion will take place in Washington DC.
We still plan to hold a 2020 Business meeting and are finalizing plans to create a telephonic or video conference which members can join from their homes. More details will follow as this develops.
Given this decision, there are a few things you will need to do…
First, if you reserved a room (s) or made travel arrangements, you will need to contact the hotel and airline or bus line to cancel or reschedule as necessary. Don’t forget to cancel rental cars and other reservations.
Second, if you have already registered, you have two options: 1) We will send you a check with your payment amount and you can re-register next year, or 2) We will keep your registration payment for next year at the 2020 rate. We will contact each registered attendee to determine their preference.
We hope that you remain in contact with one another throughout these unusual circumstances. As conditions improve and we are able to gather in larger groups we hope the informal Blue Spader regional get-togethers will continue as they did earlier this year.
Finally, please take care of yourselves and one another throughout this COVID-19 event. Stay safe and follow the guidelines for your state and region. There are many resources available, to include the CDC guidelines. We hope to see everyone at the 2021 Reunion. We will provide more information as needed in the months ahead.
