    Sun n Fun 2020

    Attendee Information - This came in my email feed this morning.

    The 2020 SUN ‘n FUN Aerospace Expo will proceed as scheduled. While we are aware of and
    monitoring the current circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 Virus, the event will continue as
    planned. As the primary fundraiser for the Aerospace Center for Excellence, we remain
    dedicated to creating limitless opportunities for today’s youth but are also committed to public
    health and safety. SUN ‘n FUN is working closely on a daily basis with local, state, and federal
    agencies to plan for a safe event with appropriate precautions and safeguards in place. As a
    result of this information and the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and
    Prevention (CDC) for large events and festivals, we are proceeding with SUN ‘n FUN 2020 with
    the health and safety of our attendees, staff, and volunteers, as our top priority. See the link below for full information

    I'm torn on this one. I was planning to attend, and am confident the Sun 'n Fun people know what they're doing. My medical risk is minimal.

    However, I am far from confident about getting there and getting back in a timely manner. Quarantine requirements (which tend to pretty ad hoc), cancelled flights and possible travel restrictions are making it look like a non-starter. I'll decide next week.

    For years I have offered KALX as a stopover, alternate, etc regarding SnF. Charlotte and I are happy to provide again, however the new KALX manager has instituted a policy that includes landing fee of $10 for mouse-sized aircraft, parking fees of $10 per day, and other ancillary charges. Be aware before you make KALX a waypoint.

    I'm planning on going. Not sure what will be left of my hands by then after all this washing and washing.

    Mark, I'm planning to attend Sun n Fun, OshKosh and BACFest 2020 unless the Canadian government puts on a specific travel ban to the USA, which is highly unlikely. There are currently scheduled countries like China, Iran, Italy, etc. that Foreign Affairs have specifically indicated are No-Go countries with quarantine requirements on return, but outside that it's self vigilance. Have you bought your toilet paper yet?

    I could bring my donuts and spare parts with me, self quarantine for 14 days and get all the snags fixed on my Sport. What a great deal!

    Charlotte says come on down!! With some adequate pre-planning we can set aside 2-3 days to do the donuts. As of yesterday N8786 is sold and delivered so I have an open hangar space until 1 July. Contact me direct email or phone and we can start working on a plan.
