    CDC is recommending to postpone all gatherings of 50+ for the next 8 weeks...

    Yep, this is right at the end of that 8 week run, but we will see how things are looking as it get closer, and handle accordingly. Hopefully everything will be good by this time and everyone will be anxious to get out of their houses and do something different for a change.
    <fingers crossed>

    As much as it pains me to do this, although likely not that big of a surprise, but we have to cancel Reef ED for this year, as it is going to be quite a while yet before we can do any large gatherings. :(
    Can't wait till we can do another meeting this year. Hopefully things clear up later this summer and then we can do a big MASC BBQ once we can all gather again.

    Well the judges <looking at @MuralReef > will need to come alternate way to handle judging this, and then we will have to wait for the presentations till NOV Coral Extravaganza I think. I believe they had some ideas off what they are going to do, so they will need to weigh in on that.
    Shouldn't be to hard for judging though anyway since only 2 of us made it to the end.
