I noticed that the Bloomington Gold Corvette event scheduled for Indy in June had been re-scheduled for Sept..... so I was just wondering if SAAC-45  might be so lucky.....

States are beginning to shut down again... Beaches are locked down in California, guessing we can write off 2020 for mass gatherings. A sign of the times- :-\

    No one anticipated the sadistic nature of this virus. I am on my third infection right now. First in Dec through Feb . Major hit before it was "known". Second hit first week of March  lasted about two weeks and now this hit finishing up a two week hit and it should be gone in a few more days. "I" thought once I had it , I would be immune. Boy was I wrong. The relapses are NOWHERE near as severe as the initial so the antibody IS working , but it really struggling to fight off the virus.  "To me" the key is wearing a mask to stop the spread.

Sorry for the illness Randy. I didn't know you could recatch it either. But thank you for your wise advice ref wearing masks. Seems like a simple thing to me but so many people seem to have difficulty with the idea.
Get well soon, for good.

I am still working very hard to have the North East Regional SAAC meet the end of September. Lots of juggling, re-structuring, changing events to outdoors, and so far still a go.  Come on East and enjoy a smaller and more enjoyable Shelby weekend!

As far as 2021, My thoughts would be either try Indy again, just skip and go to California as seemed to be the plan for 46, or try something new?

 Thanks Jeff . You are right , NOT about me at ALL.

       I am going to focus on my program for SAAC 46 which "I" hope will be at Sonoma in 2021 It should be EPIC.

Any chance of SAAC 45 being re-scheduled to later in the year ?

No, sorry....that's not a possibility.

BTW:  Won't next year's event still be called SAAC 45?  If we're counting...

All the best to you, Randy. Hang in there!
