September 22, 2020 This year’s event will be impacted greatly by COVID19 public and private gathering restrictions and it is unknown exactly what those will be at the end of February and how far in advance they will shift. We will plan as if Ada County stays in Unmodified Stage III, so long as social distancing can be maintained. (As of Fall 2020, only gatherings of 10 are allowed in Ada County, but Valley County is in Stage 4 which allows gatherings of more than 50 people.) Shore Lodge has assured us that under the 50-person conditions they will be able to host the event with accommodations and modifications to the usual plans. Should public health guidelines become more restrictive than they this fall then the event will be moved completely online and partial or full-refunds will be processed accordingly. Therefore, we will be planning for a hybrid event that allows a certain number of in-person attendees based on current conditions and an increased number of attendees online at a cheaper rate.
