I would like to report that the Scarlet Mask Vigilance Society, hosting the National Convention has implemented all recommended Health & Safety recommendations.

Since our group is smaller then the numbers being bandied about for social distancing;
  We are not flying to the destination;
  and the Venue is in it's off season.

Barring intervention by the Governor of Indiana, The NCOWS Convention will go on as planned.

If you are experiencing symptoms: STAY HOME.
If you feel that you are in the susceptible population: STAY HOME.

Books,  with all due respect, look in the damn mirror. You are in the susceptible population, as the majority of members are, but possibly you don't "feel" that you are? I am really torn by this, they are freaking cancelling everything from Sunday church to the College World Series. Think that won't have an economic effect on Omaha NE?  I do understand we're all playing "tough" cowboys, but?  I don't know.
It is far better to remain silent, and be thought a fool, than to speak and remove all doubt!

With the greatest respect to all concerned, we take risks whenever we venture outside of our homes. There can also be some risks associated with just staying home. Our governor has urged all South Carolinians to continue with our daily routines and responsibilities. That sounds like good advice. Everyone is welcome to make their own assessments. I intend to go and enjoy the Convention.

Books, I look forward to seeing you and all of our friends this Thursday. Please save a place forme at dinner. 0

Broken Nose Scotty,
just remember, if you have enough water and toilet paper hoarded, the coronavirus can't get you . . .

In a large part we're a population of over 60 years of age in NCOWS. Our campfire conversations generally consist of describing the latest ailment, surgery procedure, or culture shock of what's costing more than it did 20 years ago.

Please be safe, my NCOWS family.

Books,  I am further into that "old age" thing than you are "BUT" I shall be there looking to have a grand time. The girls at the VA Clinic in Springfield, MO are still
laughing about how easy it is to scare human beings.

I believe the best course in this country would be to adopt the same "wartime" footing that America and Great Britain exhibited during WWII.
Temporary factory direction switched over to manufacture of ventilators, health supplies, etc., rationing of everyday goods to enforce against hoarding, restricting travel, and neighborhood organization into Health Watch groups.
I am trying to not be a Chicken Little here, but I believe our citizens need to take this a bit more seriously.

Here in iowa we have 3 million population with 16 cases, but the governor closed the
schools, and not recommending gatherings of over 50. Here are some old numbers from
the last 4 conventions, about 105 at the banquet, 250-330 walk-ins. we worried about
weather, disrupting things.

It is my sad duty to report that;

Due to the Center for Disease Control recommended precautions for dealing with the Covid 19 Pandemic, it is the decision of the NCOWS Executive Committee, that the 2020 NCOWS convention be cancelled.

Our thanks goes out to the Scarlet Mask Vigilance Society for all of their outstanding efforts.

The NCOWS Banker and the Convention Committee will work diligently to facilitate appropriate refunds.
