After a great deal of review of public
health sources, checking with local and state government authorities, monitoring the national and local course
of the coronavirus pandemic, and consulting with fellow British car clubs, the Club’s Board made the hard
decision on Saturday not to conduct the Hunt Country Classic British Vehicle Show this year. We did so now
because this is when we must make commitments for the Show.
We are especially sad since in 2019 we
had one of the most successful Classics in the Club's history and were all looking forward to celebrating with
our wonderful host, Barbara Scott, twenty-five years of Classics at her lovely Willoughby Farm. The Board gave
this a good long look, including monitoring the varying impact of the virus on localities from week to week.
Unfortunately, the more we studied the situation, its uncertainties, and what our challenges would be to insure
everyone’s safety and health, the more we were led reluctantly to conclude that the responsible thing to do in 2020
was to forego our premiere event for 2020 and allow us increased
time to plan for a Silver Anniversary Classic that we all won’t soon forget.
Stay positive. Stay healthy. Cheers!
Joe Dowley, Club President
