From the SASS Headquarters:
We are all living in a new world this month as COVID-19 continues to wreak havoc on our lives across the globe. All of us at SASS wish nothing but peace and health to our members and their families during this time, and our thoughts are with those surviving in the areas hardest hit.
For the first time in 39 years, we regret to announce the cancellation of END of TRAIL 2020. An event like END of TRAIL takes months and months of planning, a significant financial commitment, and is reliant upon our attendees, sponsors, vendors, competitors, and guests to make it successful.
While there is much the world still doesn’t know about the lifespan of COVID19, the fact remains that it could be months before we return to a level of normalcy that would allow for a successful END of TRAIL.
The number of cancellations has skyrocketed over the past 2 weeks, and even if the surge of the virus is behind us and the gathering bans are lifted in time for the event, we feel that the wake left behind from the devastating COVID-19 Pandemic will still be evident, and that we would not be in a position to present END of TRAIL in the tradition and fanfare that it, and our guests both deserve.
If you have already registered for END of TRAIL, you have 3 options:
- Request a full refund
- Transfer your entry fee to EOT 2021
- Donate: your entry fee will be transitioned into a direct donation to the SASS Museum & Cowboy Action Shooting Hall of Fame; a 501C-3. You will receive a donation receipt for your contribution for tax purposes.
*Please contact us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org to inform us what your choice is.
END of TRAIL Registration will remain open and all information will be transferred to EOT 2021.
We look forward to seeing you at the 40thAnniversary of END of TRAIL, June 17-27, 2021. What a bash it will be!
I realize the date today is April 1st… and, April Fools Day. This is NOT an April Fools Prank/Joke. This is real. EOT is REALLY cancelled. 🙁
We remain extremely grateful for each and every one of our members and your individual contributions- whether that be time, talent or treasure (and sometimes all three!). We look forward to continuing to serve you in the upcoming year, and for many years to come.
In gratitude for your support & membership,
Misty Moonshine, SASS Patron #83232
