PCA National Event Updates:
Adult vaccine rates for those over 65 has exceeded 60% of all those who are qualified. Case rates as well as the positivity rates are decreasing and many counties in Zone 7 are coming out of the most restrictive purple tier. This is excellent news for future club activities not only in Zone 7 but for PCA national events across the country. At the most recent national staff meeting, PCA club president Tom Gorsuch gave an upbeat assessment of upcoming events. He reported that Club Racing has more than 20 events for 2021 scheduled versus last year’s schedule of just a little over a dozen. Treffen Scottsdale sold out in a record of 13 minutes and Parade at French Lick, Indiana has nearly 3,000 attendees signed up and could exceed the stellar turnout we had at Parade Monterey in 2014. Werks Reunion at Amelia Island is still working on some safety issues surrounding the pandemic and updates from local health authorities. Tom Provasi, Werks Reunion Chair, is confident the event will proceed and is hoping to open registration as early as late May or early June. Tom was very encouraged with news regarding the coronavirus and hopeful that the pandemic will allow large group gatherings for all our big national events. Let’s keep our fingers crossed and do our best to maintain public safety and the safety of our members.
