Just got the e-mail from EAA HQ. As a volunteer tram conductor for a decade or so I was looking forward to July, but BETTER safe than sorry.

Ah the great panic of 2020 keeps on giving.

Even if the country were to reopen by then , we would be facing:

- 30+ million unemployed which would have to translate to a lot of people skipping the luxury of visiting AirVenture anyway
- after 2 months of daily counting dead and projecting another Black Death like disaster just beyond the horizon, a lot of people are just frightened
- and as usual , organizers would have an army of angry and reinvigorated ( after being confined to their homes for 2 months ) ambulance chasers to contend with - and who needs that ...
