With venues closing and the government advisories directing no public gatherings of more than 10 people, we are suspending MECA events until May. Depending on many variables, we would like to resume our event schedule in May, but that may not be possible.
There may be a small SQL event or 2 during this time, and we are working on that. Events are being removed from the calendar as soon as we have confirmation. Most events will be rescheduled, although we may lose some for 2020, and hope to be back in full force in 2021.
No doubt, this will impact our members’ points accumulation We will work to make sure that all members who want to compete at Finals are able to do so, given that we are able to present the 2020 Finals events. Ironically, we were ready to announce the Finals dates and location this week, but now the venue is having issues that will effect our plans. The united orgs, MECA and IASCA and dB Drag Racing, intend to present a 2020 unified Finals. More info on that as we can confirm it.
The mobile electronics industry and MECA were off to a great start for 2020, with engaged customers and sales that indicated an exciting year. MECA will continue to promote our club and sponsors during this intermission. Knowing the safety concerns, our goal is to have contests as soon as possible. The main thing is that our club is working to provide safe and worthwhile events and will continue when “the coast is clear”.
