And as an added question, are they taking away a day? 30th is a Thurs. Isn't it normally Wed-Sun?

To add to the new topic. Here are the important dates you'll need.

February 16 - Sponsor/Exhibitor Information Sent
(Doubtful this is relevant to us)
June 1 - Hotel Block Opens
(NOTE they aren't using OnPeak so we do it ourselves. Which brings up the question, why do we then need to wait? Unless its for the discount).
June 5 - Badge Sales Open
(No news on Groups, but I promise I will know before this what we should do)
June 8 - Call for Volunteers
(Just in case you want to give more of your time)
September 30 - October 3 - Origins Game Fair
(Yay! tempered with uncertainty)

Yes I am going. Yes it's Thursday this year, no explanation as to why, but I'll take it. Social distancing and masks will be required. Origin's website has the dates for hotels, registration, etc. Encouraging and at my semiannual doctors visit it looks like April for my vaccines.

Mind you, it'll also depend if Cbus isn't a smoking ruin in the next couple of weeks... :evil:

And the question if the site is no longer the backup emergency room for Columbus. That will take priority.

Chopping wednesday is a smart move this year. Saves them lease, shortens exposure for us and in september, saves a handful of parents the issue of cutting classes for the con.

Keep in mind, if we are not running events, that will make the club discount a non viable thing this year. The volunteer time to make that up is ridiculous.

In the Sunday Chicago Tribune was listed how long, at the current rate from the beginning, it would take to complete the distribution of the Vaccine to all persons, it gave 20 months for Illinois.

I won't be attending Origins if this is true.

And, as Covid-19 is a virus, it will mutate and there will be a new vaccines for 2022, 2023, 2024, etc.

I totally understand anybody opting to stay home this year. My own attendance will be in question until at least August. And only part of it is covid related.

But I will miss seeing you there, Mike.

On the plus side, it's good to hear from you Mike! We always worry when you go quiet.

So, the guy from Moderna admits today that we will have to get 'boosters' every year for COVID-19.

We kinda knew that. The message just got buried in the refusal to talk about the virus after october.

No different than a flu shot at that point.
