IFA GRAND CONVENTION UPDATES
March 31st. 2020
I hope this notice finds everyone healthy & safe. These are sure trying times, but I know we Footprinters are a resolute bunch, and no doubt will survive this Covid-19 pandemic aka; "Beer Flu" with flying colors!
When the "stay at home" orders from our leaders started coming down a couple of weeks ago, I was in the middle of a California tour for our organization. I cut off the second half of my travels and headed back home to the Pacific Northwest. On the way home I conversed with many of our Grand Board Members and decided to ride out the rest of March and see how things materialized before making any decisions on the upcoming grand convention in Bellingham.
I feel that with the age of our group and many unknowns to date, that it is in our best interest at this time to postpone our convention. In working my due diligence I have kept an open dialogue with many of our Grand Officers, the La Quinta hotel in Bellingham as well as the boat company that we would charter with for our San Juan Island Dinner Whale Watching Cruise and came up with the dates that should provide us with good weather and still not interfere with many of our seasonal vacation plans.
So, that being said, I have rescheduled our 2020 Grand Convention in BellinghamPGP for Wednesday the 16th thru Saturday the 19th of September. This "hopefully"should not interfere everyone's vacations plans that usually take place in July & August. Please feel free to call/text me with any concerns, questions etc; 360-223-8744
