Without doubt a hard decision to make but i think the right decision under the most difficult times we all face.  Will be looking forward to the future gathering, and catching up with everyone. Add us in, we will be there.

Dear Rick,

Thanks a lot to you and all the Team.
Fully understand what you and others here have stated...;
it's just too vague currently or the restrictions will still even be too tight this season. ???
Especially, it's all about the people and not so much about the cars. ;)
And if we cannot socialize as we did in the past ..., what sense does it make?
With facial masks and 2 meters distance between each of us... :o

Let's therefore hope and plan for next year,
and please keep Aslam (Kampala) and myself on the list.
Surely we want to attend.

All bet to you and the Team
and stay healthy...

Aslam and Achim

Dear Rick and Team,

I totally understand this decision.  Safety First, and I agree that we can't drink with masks on.

I cannot thank you enough for stepping up to organize an event.  Of course we are all hoping for a 2021 event.  As it turns out, I require back fusion surgery this summer, so the delay allows Kathy and I to attend next year.  Please keep my deposit for 2021, and let me know if additional funds are required.

Have a wonderful summer to the extent you can.  Most important, stay healthy and safe.

Completely understood, Rick. Hopefully 2021 will provide an opportunity for an event under more normal conditions.  A big “thank you” to you, Peter, Paul and Johannes for all the effort expended.  Do keep us on the list for an eventual 2021 event.  We will look forward to receiving further updates.
