    I paid more for my Large 11 years ago! 

    Those are some great prices.

    The only precaution is to use a little common sense......it's an outdoor event.

    I'd assume masks will still be required?

    I will refrain from commenting on the "masking optional" deal other than to say...why optional (and a follow-up)??  This covid deal is science-outdoor or not...we are far from anything close to declaring victory and likely not there til the end of the summer, if lucky and we don't further hose this up which the recent track record indicates we will!
    Be well-
    (Edit:  I recall from a prior life that it is much easier to relax the rules than it is to tighten them up-food for thought.)

    Still claims they get visitors from GWN, the northern wall is not opening for non-essential travels any time soon and I hope it stays that way.

     That is a pretty ignorant statement. If you don't like Americans you are probably hanging out in on the wrong forum.

    I like Americans who are not ignorant of science. Guess many other countries are ignorant for banning travellers from US.

    Good to see you here, now that you have a lot of free time on your hands.  I look forward to seeing some Egging from Mar-A-Lago!

    I thought it’s common sense that I meant ‘...it stays that way (until COVID is under control)’. I didn’t say ... it stays that way forever, unfortunate and sorry if it came across as that.

    If you want to help the community I think following CDC guidelines is advisable.  You might actually get more people to come, because they know the organizers are taking safety seriously.

    With sincerity, and respect for your intentions, I don’t understand this reasoning.
