COVID-19 and the 2020 Rally

It is with deep regret that I am announcing the cancellation of the 2020 East Coast HDT Rally due to the continuing spread of the Coronavirus in the U.S. As a retired physician I prefer to deal in facts, not media hype but in listening to leaders in the healthcare field from the National Institute of Health, CDC, and others it has become evident that the group at most risk for serious complications is the over 60 age group especially those with comorbid health issues. I am hoping I am being overly cautious but would much rather take this route than have any of my friends contract the virus and suffer a serious complication.

The park is open for business as usual, and you are still welcome to join us. Several folks have already indicated they intend to keep their reservations at Deer Run but understand there will be NO formal scheduled activities or seminars. We’re trying to avoid the hours-long proximity that is common to both the rally event schedule and what is believed to be the predominant mechanism for transmission.

You have received a full refund for your rally fee. T-shirts have not been ordered from the vendor, and you will also receive a refund for T-shirts you may have ordered. Depending on your method of payment, refunds will either go back to your credit card or to your PayPal balance. If you have any questions about your refund, please contact us.

I have informed Deer Run of the cancellation. If you DO NOT plan on keeping your site, or wish to change the dates of your stay, please contact them at [email protected] to process the refund/change. I have nothing to do with their timing of processing or the terms for their refunds (including any processing fees).

Again, I regret the necessity of this decision but stand by it for the welfare of all. We look forward to seeing you soon, and look forward to the 2021 rally.
