COVID-19 Virus and Fredericksburg, Texas
Due to the ever changing concerns and restrictions on our world regarding the Covid-19 Virus the AYA Board of Directors have moved the 2020 Fredericksburg Convention to May 10-13, 2021.
NO AYA CONVENTION IN 2020.
Many, many thanks to Scott Sanders, Susan Dollar, Cindy and Bill Daley for agreeing to host the 2021 Convention in Fredericksburg, Texas. There are still many hours that are needed to cancel and re-book the venues, etc and that TAKES A LOT TIME AND COMMITMENT!! Thanks again to you all.
The 2021 Pacific Region convention will now be held in 2022 (no date set yet). I also want to thank Kim Muinch for his understanding and willingness to move the Pacific Region Convention to 2022. Kim has been putting in a lot of time researching sites and hotels for 2021 and now must reschedule as well.
Full refunds have already been issued to all who had registered and paid their registration fees for the 2020 Convention.
Don’t forget to cancel any reservations you may have made ie: car/hotel/airlines. Hopefully they are all of the understanding of the situation and full refunds will be forth coming. We just cancelled our hotel room at the Hangar Hotel and received a full refund.
Scott Sanders has been in contact with the Hangar Hotel and they have agreed to book the AYA in for 2021 at the same quoted price of this year (this includes room rates and conference center). WOW!!! Is that customer service or WHAT!!!
ALSO: The Convention Scholarship Auction is the main source of fundraising for the AYA Scholarship Program and as the convention is being cancelled for this year - Please “consider making a donation to the Scholarship Fund”. Any and all donations are appreciated – Helping to keep our young people flying.
Our Scholarship applicants must apply by February 1st, 2021 to be eligible for a Scholarship. Our 2021 Convention will not be held until May 2021 – therefore, there will be few funds available for the applicants and/or we may have to cancel the program for next year without your support.
Stay healthy and fly safe – Hope to see you all in Fredericksburg in 2021. Any questions/concerns please contact myself at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone: 1-306-441-9525.
