NOTE from MVCC President - April Camp Plymouth

Post by Chris T. » Sun Mar 15, 2020 11:24 am

Just a quick note to everyone:

We tried everything to save the meet. When the powers than be say No, then No it is. I feel really bad for all our friends who travel from the four corners of Earth to come. We WILL have great Fall Meet, September 15-19! I'm drafting a letter to the MVCC membership today, but I'm stuck on what to say. With all this crazy stuff going on, the meet is one of the things we needed to take our minds off this thing.

I do want to thank the MVCC Board, we're all working to get things shutdown and let everyone know what is happening.

As for myself, after the membership letter, I'm going out to the garage and do some wrench turning on one of my CCKW.

Thank you for the update Chris. I think we all understand. We'll set our sights on the Fall event.

I quarantined my my shop all day...with no news... 8)

If it was just an outdoor social meet it would be less of a problem, assuming we had a choice which we don't. But a swap meet doesn't lend itself to social distancing. You'll never see people stand 6 feet apart when the tailgate comes down and the parts start coming out.

Just plan for September. The virus is supposed to go away well before that. If the economy takes a big dump there might be more stuff for sale. That's both good and sad.

I hope there are a block of sites being saved for us.
