2020 CONVENTION UPDATE / CANCELLATION

As of May 11,2020, it appears unlikely that Illinois will lift their various restrictions in time to hold the convention.

 

After consulting with the club President, Vice President, and various Board Members, we have reached the conclusion that the best choice, due to circumstances beyond our control, is to cancel the planned 2020 National Checker Convention.

 

For those who registered, I will be returning your checks in the next week or so, depending on Post Office delivery time. If you ordered a T-shirt separately, I am also returning that check since we won’t be printing them.

 

The Board decided we will try to reschedule for 2021 in Springfield, IL. I don't have the new dates at the moment but will try to schedule it in the usual June time frame.

 

As previously planned, 2022 will remain in Kalamazoo.

 

Tentatively, 2023 will be St. Louis.

 

The club will try to arrange some smaller gatherings around the country this year, conditions permitting.

 

Thanks,

John W
