NAPA 2020 Convention CANCELED

After much thought and consideration I have decided we should cancel the NAPA 2020 Convention. I do not do this lightly. I have been taking into consideration of what is going in the USA and other countries. As of now there is no end to the Covid-19 Virus in sight. The current wave of the virus has not even peaked in the US yet. There are some reports that the death rates in New York City has begun to decrease but here in Ohio they are not expecting a peak of the virus until mid May to June 1. If we consider that the virus would be on the downhill slide in July but far from over and there may be another surge in the virus after the initial one decreases.

I did consider postponing until Autumn but I feel it's best to cancel it for the year. As of now we will just continue the NAPA as is until next year's convention.
