Good question, Pat. I have been thinking along the same lines.
For individuals such as yourself who would be traveling some distance and possibly need to stay overnight at a campground or some other facility, would the lack of such prevent your attendance?
Some people, I am thinking Pam and Rob, have already requested time off, although who will be working in late April/early May could become a question.
For myself, as of now I will still plan to attend assuming there will be at least a sufficient number of people to allowing shuttling. But that could change. I am pretty certain at this point that Mary will not attend, and it is possible that she might need to go to Chicago land to help with her father’s care, in which case I would have to look after my dog and I don’t believe Buddy is up to it at this point, having had some type of neurologic event at the end of February.
But I would also be up to postponing the event or a change of venue if that would work out for others. If we do wind up having some type of gathering but the group is small, another consideration might be a mulitple day downriver trip if anyone is concerned about potential risks of using and sharing public facilities.
It might be helpful if those who thought they might attend but now think they very likely will not, and conversely those who would still like to attend post their plans in this thread. I don’t want to be the only one to show up, and I’m sure nobody else does.
