Thanks for the update and persistence in keeping the Rally alive! It is what it is, but I must say, car talk is about the only thing keeping me sane. Please everyone keep active on the forum in the meantime, it’s for my wellbeing... 😊

We all feel your frustration Chip. Thank you none the less for trying so hard to put this together for all of us. I'm certain that DBK and you did not come to this decision without exhausting every option.

Sadly, I've pretty much written off '20. It's a leap year anyway...
Thanks for all your efforts to make a gathering happen.

Chip, thanks for even trying to get it together with all the chaos going around. I'm looking forward to a trip to Arizona in the GT whenever it happens.

Unfortunately, a necessary choice.

It means that Chip, Dave and others have to go back and do an enormous amount of work all over again. Thanks to all of you for the tremendous effort that you put in on our behalf. We all know that whenever Rally 13 happens, it will be GREAT, and we can't wait.

I don't know about you, but this Covid deal is starting to get a little scary for me. Underlying conditions I have plenty of; N95 masks not so much.

Follow the rules and be safe. I am afraid many more people are going to start ignoring the recommendations and making it worse for all of us. Let's make sure we set a proper example.

Thanks for your tireless work on this and update. If Covid is still a problem in the future, I may not be able to attend due to Martha's health, but here's hoping!

This is terribly unfortunate news but, in the end, I suspect it was the right decision. Chip, as usual, thank you for ALL you do for us.
