Renting a flat is probably not the answer to already-over-committed resources.

I'm likewise in, bar reet propa quarantine.

To no-one's great surprise, Salute has been cancelled.

(Strictly they're wording it as "postponed", but they're postponing it to the same time next year, so...)

Dependent on the situation, I will see if there's any possibility to do hold a mini-meet instead, but in light of the scale of the pandemic, this will have to be carefully considered.

Sad to hear but for the best to slow things down.

To keep people appraised, and to no-one's great surprise (I wasn't really bothering much with preparations), Salute 2021 has been postponed again.

The new date will be Saturday 13th November 2021. I will look into recruitment for people to help out with the display closer to the time, dependent on whether it is actually responsible to be getting involved with a large event. (Hopefully, vaccination and transmission rates will be far safer by the time).

Due to some complete stupidity and other hassle at my end, I've managed to mostly forget about an e-mail I've had from the Salute organisers that I was supposed to be responding to promptly.

Do I actually still have willing volunteers for putting on a display game, or am I going to have to tell them we're turning down our space?

As is, 13th November should be after a vaccine roll-out is complete, so large events will hopefully be relatively safe, but I will understand if people are reluctant.

I'm still up for it, successful vaccine roll-out conditional.
I understand this is probably too late though.
Grim old year.

This is more or less what I already told them - that we still wanted our space, although we considered everyone's safety and health more important than the show.

I made the assumption that I would hopefully be able to find enough victims volunteers to assist closer to the time. Hopefully I'm proved right and I won't need to send our apologies.
