A. We are asking everyone attending to either be fully vaccinated or have tested negative for COVID in the last 24 hours. Regardless of vaccination status everyone is encouraged to wear a mask whenever not eating or drinking indoors. We will have extra seating in the meeting room for those who prefer more space. Also, we will have color coded dots at registration to denote comfort level. See below.
We’ve developed a sticker system to make sure everyone is comfortable while we gather. We ask everyone to please be mindful and respectful of each other during this event. Thank you!
A. Not really. Let’s call it business casual or resort casual. Relax and be comfortable. Our Sunday evening party is outside so please dress for the weather.
