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 in Stage IV and can host 50+ private gatherings.) 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.
Registration will open up November 1.

Online Watch Party Locations
We are currently exploring the potential of sites in Ada and possibly Canyon County for hosting groups of 10 of less attendees to watch the event together. This would allow you to stay in the Treasure Valley, avoid the crowds and winter travel, but still enjoy the camraderie and benefit of learning with colleagues. Breakfast would be provided each morning and each watch party site would host a small Friday evening reception. This opportunity would require an enhanced registration cost TBD over and above the regular price. Please indicate your non-committal interest in learning more about this when you register for virtual attendance.
