Any one heard anything about Iowa Gas? Sadly they would have the same problems that cancelled the Columbus Show. With an older crowd I would expect it to raise concerns. That small restaurant inside, limited indoor patio seating, vendors inside and outside crammed together. Then there is the room to room...I love this show but I have my doubts it would go on as it's only about 9 weeks away...

2 months is a long ways away yet. Lots of people seem to think it’s back to normal already.. So who knows, but I’m hoping it goes forward.

The good news is it's a republican run state and most stuff is to be opened on June 1st.
I would think if Ron and John give us a good guidelines for the room to room and eating areas, we could get it done without problems.
It's never has been about huge crowds so lets all do a good job at sticking to their guidelines and enjoy ourselves.
I'm sure Route 32 will get a plan put together for the auction also.


Thanks
Mike

Iowa Gas posted on Facebook about a week or so ago that at that time the show was still a go. The Iowa Governor has opened up a lot of stuff already and by the time August rolls around everything should be opened back up. I would not count IG out yet.
