Tour

It is with sincere regret that I must inform of the decision to cancel the club tour for this year that was scheduled for September 12th and 13th. Because of the nature of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, most of the tour participants do not feel comfortable opening up their backyards to the general public. Since the club has had a direct consequences in the passing of a club member who was scheduled to be on the tour, the seriousness of this pandemic has really hit home. As for the people who have bought tour books already, I propose that the club issue a statement on the club website and the facebook page that the current tour book will be honored at next years tour, or a refund will be available by returning the book to the club at the fall home show, the Bixby show, or possibly a club member if the club member is willing to provide the refund and then be reimbursed by the club for any books that they have received. I welcome any and all comments on this matter.
