With a lot of deliberation and thought, we have decided to cancel Flite Fest 2020.
With the escalation of the Covid19 pandemic, we believe this difficult decision is necessary to keep the community, our employees and Flite Test safe for many years to come. Obviously many of you probably were expecting this with events such as the Summer Olympics postponing a year, but we wanted to make an official announcement so people don’t have to wonder anymore. Flite Fest is such a magical event and the opportunity to spend time with you all for a weekend is the highlight of our year. We know this is really sad and difficult news for a lot of you to hear and we are right there with you.
If you have pre-registered for the event, thank you for your commitment and for making the time in your calendar.
You will be receiving a notice of a refund soon if you haven’t already.
To our volunteers and wonderful people who help us with the event every single year, thank you! We know that people were already gearing up to help put on the event. We considered waiting longer to see how things would change before fully committing to cancelling the event, but we would prefer to look back and say we were too cautious then to say we’re too late with the decision.
We know that people make travel arrangements, schedule vacation time and make financial commitments that are hard to undo. We want to be sensitive to that and make sure that everyone has as much time as possible so it’s as painless as possible to revise your plans.
Although “social distancing” is a term that is going to be with us for a while, proximity distancing is probably a more accurate term.
It’s our goal to be more social than ever while online and interacting with you, our community in more ways than we ever have before.
We may not get to share a wonderful weekend together but we can connect, talk and be together online every single week and we plan to be there.
We hope you will too. Keep an eye on www.edgewaterairpark.com and subscribe for future updates. We hope to be having some smaller events announced for later in the year!
