Title: POSTPONED 2020 Ultimate Sport Show Grand Rapids Volunteers Schedule
Post by: djkimmel on March 04, 2020, 02:17:49 PM
Volunteer schedule for the 2020 Ultimate Sport Show Grand Rapids is being removed for now as Showspan has postponed the show due to Governor Whitmer's Executive Order to not hold any events or gatherings with 250 or more persons. The order is effective for now through April 5th so no USS Gr until at least that time.

Won't know anything further until this thing works itself out and/or more information is received. I just know there will be NO USS GR this coming week March 19-22.

Friday, March 13 is a lucky day for me, but I guess not so lucky for anything wanting to have an event...

FYI: I'm heading to the Bassmaster Classic this weekend for our every other year Conservation Summit, so I may not respond to things posted Friday through Sunday until Monday, March 9. Depends on free time and available Internet.

CANCELED! Due to the Governor's order on Friday the 13th (which was a special day for me) the 2020 Ultimate Sport Show Grand Rapids has been postponed! There will be no event this coming March 19-22.

The Governor's order states no such events or gatherings of 250 persons or more until at least after April 5th. I see some entities are canceling as far into the future already as mid-April. I expect Showspan won't announce anything further until we see how this plays out. If they cancel it permanently for 2020 I will pass that along.
