    Sad but the right call. Glad they made the call this early.

    I guess in a state where cops come to your home to threaten you when your kids play with your neighbor’s kids, it would be pretty tough to hold an event like this. As Jack pointed out, it’s not just a July event; activity would have begun now.

    We must never forget who prevented containing the virus at the origin, and all the worldwide damage they caused.

    I’ll just edit to avoid thread clutter to address the comment below.
    I was pointing out how Wisconsin has extreme lockdown rules that could get people arrested for benign activities, so the Convention would be impossible to hold. Also, I don’t see why it’s controversial to criticize the Communists who started this.

    Only took 6 minutes for someone to make it political. Awesome.

    No doubt its a bummer for all that wanted to attend, but the sheer size of the liability that the EAA would have to deal with, at least common sense from the powers that be, decided to not venture down that path. Its not the end of the world for the city of Oshkosh and its not the end of the world for the EAA and all of the money they have invested in the infrastructure of Wittman Field. Both factions will survive and hopefully " OSHKOSH 2021 " will happen next year, but for now, the picture says it all.

    I don't know if gatherings in 2021 can be predicted with certainty.

    My motel was as gracious as could be expected, and my reservation for 2021 has been confirmed.

    That or increased ticket prices next year to make up for the shortfall. And they know people will pay it for their "fix".
    Just ordered my 2020 souvenir hat, lol.
