Birthday Bash Cancelled

October 9, 2020

Hello Everyone!

Ed and I have decided to cancel the November Birthday Bash Campout at Potawatomi State Park in Sturgeon Bay.  When the rest of our summer schedule was cancelled, we had been optimistically hoping we could still continue this tradition. 

We recently participated in the informal get together at Soo Locks, and found it difficult in inclement weather to enjoy our short time together.  Not saying we did not have fun, but it was not comfortable in the wind, rain, giant puddles outside our door……

In years past, we have made great use of the shelters and fireplaces at Potawatomi Park for a pot luck, evening games, and telling of tall tales.  Weather was not a factor!  With the recent spike in Covid-19 cases, we cannot in good conscience host an event, indoors, with inadequate ventilation.   Dining out Friday night may not even be possible. 

Let’s stay safe, so we can all get together next Easter weekend at Peninsula State Park.  We miss everyone, and look forward to meeting new members too!

Please call me or email if you have any questions. 

See you down the road,

Sandy and Ed Emerick, #4425

Wisc-UP Season Events Canceled

Dear Wisc-UP Club members,

I’m writing with the sad news that our entire 2020 schedule of events may be canceled–the Birthday Bash may yet be scheduled.  Emerick’s will decide whether to host it, or not, depending on the state of the pandemic in the fall.

I have decided that because others who know more than me, e.g., The State Fair, World Dairy Expo, Summerfest, have canceled the kind of interaction Road America would have I will not encourage our members to attend the VSCDA Vintage race weekend in September.  We will not attend but I do have paid tickets and camping that I will give to anyone who wants them.

I regret having to send this message but I think it is best for our health and well-being.

See you down the road.

Update

Dear Wisc-UP Members,

On March 23 National President Mona Heath sent a message that you have probably seen.  Her message notified us that The Airstream Club Executive Committee has recommended that each region and club “…cancel all planned events for at least the next 60 days, or longer as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.”

Mona’s message is posted below.

Wisc-UP will comply with this request.  All events on our schedule through May 22, 2020 have been canceled.  John has processed refunds to those who have paid for events.  Event Schedule

I know we all hope that life will return to something like normal soon and that we will be able to continue the remaining events planned for this season.  Our ability to do this depends on the how the pandemic develops.

For now, please stay home and stay well.

Best regards,
Bill

Note from Mona Heath

March 23, 2020

As we continue to adapt to the COVID-19 pandemic and its potential impact on our members, the speed and platform(s) with which we communicate are of the utmost priority.  Beginning March 13, a series of email communications to our members, along with leadership conference calls, led to the unanimous decision of the Executive Committee (EC) to cancel the Loveland2020 International Rally.

Region Officers are working with their local clubs in support of the EC recommendation to cancel all planned events for at least the next 60 days, or longer as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).  Currently, seven (7) of our 12 region rallies have been cancelled or have not yet been scheduled, with the remaining five (5) scheduled between mid-July through late-October.

Jay Thompson, International Caravan Standing Committee Chair, is in close contact with Caravan Leaders and posted an update on Facebook last Friday.  Following is an excerpt of that post:  “We are not planning to cancel every national caravan at this time as some are scheduled many months away. We are monitoring the timing and possible effects of government recommendations and directives as well as a safe and common-sense appraisal of travel on the caravan.  “Will it be a safe and fun experience for everyone?”

On a related note, the Governor of the State of Ohio has issued a Stay At Home Order for all non-essential businesses effective 11:59am March 23 through April 6.  The Headquarters team will be in the office today developing a work at home plan and will be working remotely with some services limited or delayed.  Thank you in advance for respecting their workspace today, and patience with any unique challenges they may face while working remotely.

This level of disruption, and the absolute need for caution, is unsurpassed in recent memory; however, it is necessary.  I am absolutely confident that our leaders, at all levels, have the best interest of our members in mind. Furthermore, I am absolutely confident that our 2019-2020 International leadership team has been, and will continue to, put our members’ safety first.

Wishing you all safe and healthy travels and look forward to seeing you down the road.
