In 2021 we were a ‘Vaccine Required / Mask Recommended Event’. Though there were some cases that did came out of the event; we traced less than 2% of attendees with cases. So not perfect, but we imagine that is probably mathematically the reality of our time. We will access and formulate the need for protocols closer to the 2022 event. At that time we will decide if we will be vaccine only, boosted only, masks required, test-out-of-masks or goodness willing, we can drop all protocols and welcome everyone back with open arms. But again, we’ll assess as we get closer.  It is always our goal to foster as warm, safe and as accepting an environment as possible! We’re happy to hear any thoughts you might have. Please feel free to reach out to us!
