Ladies and gentlemen get ready and fill your wallets!!!
I'm with you Don. I only get 10 days off with my new job, but I haven't taken any as of yet. Plan on doing a recover day before I see 611 at Strasburg, but still haven't even bought the tickets yet. I have to do that tonight or tomorrow.
I'm not going since I live in California and I just don't want the plane ride(s), hotel(s), rental car, etc., to deal with this year. For me, the hassle factor outweighs the pleasure factor during '21.
October (2021) York would be my 30th York. So, yes, I'll miss going.
As of now, Pennsylvania is planning to lift all restrictions (with the exception of masks) Memorial Day weekend. Hopefully that means they will not have any issues with the state.
If Pennsylvania follows the newly-released CDC guidance, and unless the Eastern Division adopts more stringent requirements, it looks likely there will no longer be a mask requirement at the October York Meet, at least for those who have been fully vaccinated.
I've been saving my change since October 2019.......
York or Bust......October 2021......
Peter, you are not going to bring a piggy bank to York are you? I do realize some vendors like change, but not sure they will like that. Just kidding, good to see you are saving change. Me, well I'll just have to make sure I got money in the bank(still), which shouldn't be a problem. Just have to bring enough money.
Now if we can only work on getting those borders re-opened. My 9 year old son and I have made all the arrangements (again) including a trip up to Steamtown. I really hope that things are more back to normal and that we can fly down and join in the fun! Right now there is a 2 week mandatory quarantine if you come back into Canada from anywhere international so that would be a deal breaker for us. The Good news....I already have my first shot. Fingers crossed....stay strong everyone!
For the information of old, incapacitated buzzards like me, does anyone know the phone number to reserve a handicapped, motorized scooter or chair?
Randy, the company handling chairs and scooters at the Meet is D&R Mobility. The last phone number I had is 570-648-7418 Any updated info will be on the Meet booklet and the Eastern Division website.
When you call he will ask you to send the information he requests for the motorized chair or scooter along with the check for payment . Once you get to the Fairgrounds you can check in at the safety building next to the Brown Hall and give them your name and your reserved power vehicle will be ready. Below is the sample letter we sent. Hope this helps!
