Good Morning Formation Flyers,
As we all know we are living in unprecedented times. With the extension of social distancing and limitations of Bell County where the Temple airport is located we have decided to move the clinic to the last weekend of May. The new formation clinic dates will be Friday May 29 - Sunday May 31, 2020
. There will be NO back up weekend as we will not have access to facilities and it will have become too hot by June here in central Texas. ALL hotel reservations have been cancelled EXCEPT those staying at the Holiday Inn. Those at the Holiday Inn or any other hotel you made reservations with will need to be cancelled by YOU! Again, ALL reservations at the Residence Inn our primary hotel have been cancelled by Scroll. That said we know a lot of people have been directly impacted by CV-19 both physically and financially. So please take some time to reflect on your situation and whether or not signing up for this clinic is truly viable for you.
What we are doing is pushing the present sign up list and alternate list forward to be fair to those that have signed up. Now, if after reflecting on your situation you decide to not attend we ask that YOU remove your name from the list. Please email Shorts and Luke that you have removed your name as well. That way we can move folks in that are still planning to attend. We know and understand that there is still a lot of unknowns with this CV-19. We are just trying to move forward and get life going again. We will adjust as required and are having ongoing discussions among the organizers to try and plan. We have no idea what the guidelines will be with social distancing etc. We know our facilities can accommodate some social distancing. We do know if social distancing requirements stay in place we will not be able to put safety pilots in with newbies. Also, due to us planning on shuttling pilots via a crew van to hotels this will take us out of the game as well. We just want you know we are discussing all the challenges CV-19 is bringing to the table and will update you as we know more and develop a plan. We all believe it is very important to move forward but as with the primary focus of every clinic and formation hop...SAFETY FIRST!
Now for those of you that have made it this far thru this email we still encourage to you sign up on the alternate list.
We will update everyone as we get closer in. Do stay positive and safe. We will get life and formation flying going again!
