Event Status as it relates to COVID-19

Post by DPDISXR4Ti » Tue Mar 17, 2020 3:31 pm

With Merkurs at Carlisle 2020 still about 10 weeks into the future, there is no change in our plans, nor those for the Carlisle Ford Nationals. That said, clearly this is a rapidly evolving situation and we will take our direction from Carlisle Events. Here is their current statement on the show season.

In short, right now, everything is still a "go" with the opening Spring Carlisle event still scheduled to proceed on April 22-26.

I will update this thread should anything change. In the mean time, get out to the garage and start wrenching - it's great stress-reduction therapy!

Man... good luck to those planning on attending Carlisle.

This time last year, I was booking my airBNB for SEMA in November. This year, I'm even on the fence for that.

Yep, planning ANYTHING takes on a whole new dynamic these days. Carlisle Events realizes that any of their events require some advance planning and so it is their stated goal to provide 30+ days of notice of any potential changes to the event dates. That gives us time to flex our plans, should the need arise.

Plan for the worst - hope for the best!

On the bright side, I don't want to hear anyone complaining they can't make it because gas prices are too high! :)
