September Update from Lee

Sept. 23, 2020, 12:38 p.m. (ET)

I hope this finds everyone healthy and safe.  I know I don’t have to tell anyone that our world in 2020 has turned upside down.  We remain cautiously optimistic that thingswill get back to some semblance of normalcy.  We are also keenly aware that we are not there and cannot predict when we will be.  Things change on a weekly, if not a daily basis. In response, we have to be willing to adjust and create contingent plans.  This state of constant change makes communicating real time information difficult…and all the more important. I write to you today in order to share information and answer some questions:


    1. Our Winter Nationals are slated for Greensboro, North Carolina from December  15th  – 20th  with practice on the 12th 13thand 14th.  There are still some details to work out with regard to scheduling,  COVID safety protocols, status in the state of N.C. and qualifying criteria.  We will have an announcement out to you by October 1st.  Please hold onto your questions until after that announcement.
    2.  With no convention in 2020, we will be conducting an online election.  The election is slated for mid to late November.  Details on voting and candidate submission procedures, positions up for election  and timelines are being finalized.  We expect to have an announcement out to you by September 30th.  Please hold onto your questions until after that announcement.


If you have questions on issues other than these two, please don’t hesitate to email them into anyone on staff. We appreciate your support and welcome your input as we navigate these difficult times. 


Good health and best regards to all.
