I hope this message finds you well, and both you and your families continue to be in good health. I know this has been a challenging time for everyone, especially as we’ve had to socially isolate ourselves during the coronavirus outbreak. I know I’ve missed seeing you at our club functions, and I look forward to a day soon when we can get back together again in person.
In the meantime, we wondered what could we do right now that would be a nice distraction for everyone? With a little research, a few emails, and some practice, we now have a workable idea: Virtual club competitions. We’ve successfully completed a few competition testing sessions online, and I’m happy to report we’re good to go. We’re planning to use the online virtual conferencing app: “Zoom”, and have also secured the judging services of John Bruno for our rescheduled March and April competitions.
Please see the updated schedule below for important details, and stay tuned for competition invites in the coming days. I hope to see you for our first ever virtual competition next Wednesday, and continue to be safe out there!
