2020 Conclave in Crystal River FL CANCELED due to COVID-19 concerns
March 16, 2020
From Bill Borja, President of the Tampa Bay Austin Healey Club
As events have continued to unfold regarding the COVID-19 virus, we now find that the most prudent course available to us is to cancel Conclave 2020. I regret that this is the case because I know how much the Healey faithful look forward to our annual gathering, and I also know first-hand how hard many members of the Tampa Bay AHC have worked to plan for what would have been an outstanding Conclave. Unfortunately, Florida weather combined with the existing schedule of other Healey-related events precludes us from postponing and rescheduling Conclave 2020.
The safety of our membership and that of the AHCA must be the priority and it was the leading factor contributing to the cancellation. While I know many of you will be disappointed, and some may even disagree, I hope that all will recognize that we have reached this decision with the health and well being of our registrants in mind.
We are working out the details of issuing refunds to registrants as of 3/16/20. Please check this page, the event registration site, or your inbox regularly. I ask for your patience and cooperation as we work through these uncharted waters.
The Plantation on Crystal River has agreed to cancel the reservations in a block and send confirmation emails to individuals. Registrants do not need to call the hotel – please check your email inbox.
We hope everyone in our group remains vigilant and healthy!
