2020 REUNION - Colorado Springs, CO CANCELLED!
The 2020 reunion of the Sea Tigers Association was to be held September 22 thru September 26, 2020. After talking to the officers and Bob Ness, who lives there, reviewing of the Corvid-19 situation in the Colorado Springs area, I feel that it would be wise to postpone the Colorado Springs reunion until next year in the same time frame. Because we are all in the prime target group for this disease and not having a vaccine to protect our members I would not want to subject you to possible exposure either in air travel or in close quarters in a group setting. Five of our usual attendees have had serious health issues and that concerns me. As to how long the Pandemic will last and when do we get back to normal no one knows.
I hope you will understand this action as your safety is our first concern. Stay safe and we hope to see you next year. The hotel has cancelled our current booking and put us in for September 21 thru September 25, 2021. If you have already made a reservation it will be cancelled by the hotel.
