    I know where you stole most of that line, and I approve.

    Interesting set of "what ifs" proposed by Dave in post #26. Simple solution. Limit the number of people that can enter the grounds by both entry gate and aircraft. Raise the price per person. Under this scenario, it could get kind of expensive to attend AirVenture, assuming EAA decides to make it a "go", and the "what ifs" become a reality.

    Thanks, Wayne

    The two most commonly heard - and least productive - Covid pandemic 'What Ifs" IMHO require either an accurate full-functioning crystal ball or a working time machine.

    That's why I said, or not !
    But there is the case for taking a little poison to build up an immunity, but that's not me.

    P S. My friend had homeowners insurance, but still had a total loss fire. Should she not renew the insurance?
    PS n0 2 they are a medical family her brother is a top doctor at Medical center in Houston and they all get flu shots.
    I've been getting the flu shot and pneumonia shot for 5 years I guess, my wife is a nurse and she has to get one every year, or, wear a mask year round. Don't really have a problem with the flu shots, it's a gamble either way. When I was born I got all the required vaccinations so I think I'm good, don't want any more, after all, it should be voluntary anyway.

    Fretting about something that hasn’t even been developed seems like a lot of unnecessary hand wringing. Personally, we should more concerned about the impacts to us as a nation and to our society until things can get “back to normal”. If it takes getting a vaccine, so be it.

    Apperently there is some correlation between resistance to COVID-19 and those that have had tuberculosis vaccinations. A Google of “tb vaccination covid” yields quite an array of articles. If true, good news, as I had the vaccine when younger. Father was in Air Force, traveled overseas, and I thought I was a pin cushion from all the visits to the hospital while getting ready for travel.

    Take care, Wayne

    Another thing that will get affected by not holding our convention are our magazines. There is a lot of content accumulated during that week which is used throughout the year.

    I'm not saying that should be a factor in the decision, but just something to note will happen in the event of a cancelled or curtailed event.
