Really hope so but wouldn’t think a full blown event would be approved anytime soon. Poker Run and Shoot Out could go on as planned. Dinners and meetings will be tough.
My guess
Street Party will be at Windsor, Poker Run and Shoot Out will occur.
The Wednesday night VIP event will occur as well - but very limited guest list
The Friday and Saturday dinners will be a no go
Poker Run drivers meeting will be via FB live, Shootout drivers meeting as is

Really want to show off my new to me boat in Havasu
That a MCOB? If so I’ve seen a few times o do believe and it’s got the most amazingly clear canopy’s I’ve ever seen.

I know Jimmy and Christina are working hard to get permits and we all want to see it come back, but unless something changes drastically in the next 90 days with the covid policies the required city, state and federal permits will not be easy to obtain if at all. The BLM and Coast Guard permits were always touch n go to get even when things were good and it was usually down to the last second to get those but somehow Jim would always find away to jump through all the last second hoops thrown at him. Christina is very creative and has the persistence of a gamma ray (shoot right though any barrier) so if anyone can make it happen with our changing times it's going to be her. I just think it's going to come down to what the FED's policies are 90 days from now and with the incoming POTUS:mad: I think those policies are going to get much harder for something like Desert Storm to happen.

I had feeling it would be like this again! But I’m sure I’m headed to Havasu anyway!

The way it looks right now, the Street Party may have a better chance of coming off on McCulloch Blvd. than the State Park Windsor 4. The City appears to be be more generous about approving special events at the moment -- apparently 'Winter Fest' got a green light for their annual mid-February dates. So far, no 2021 confirmed commitments for special events at the State Park -- Rockabilly in February is a maybe (with a different format) -- March Bluegrass Fest is apparently canceled.

Won’t happen
Agree. Not in April anyway. I see a can kicking down the road to a later 2021 date again.

When Biden gets in we are going to be under that Federal 100 day mask mandate that will be extended indefinitely lol.

I really want it to happen for selfish reason like meeting Steve and seeing his boat. I don’t think it will happen. Hospitals are over flowing. I don’t personally know anyone sick and in the hospital, but a couple buddies are married to nurses, and they say it’s bad. Most people I’m around daily have already had it. I won’t lie, I should be more careful given my job, but I’m pretty careless with the whole mask and all the protocols. Either I’ve already had it and didn’t know, or I’m extremely lucky. All the other instructors and bosses have already had it.

Not sure they can punt again until October 21 and survive.
While overhead is small, a business can’t survive 2 years with very limited revenue.
Most performance boaters will make other plans and not come back IMO.

I don’t see anything happening at any state run facility in 100 days time. And the optics of a street party on Main Street aren’t good. I don’t see the event being profitable and surviving without the street fair. Your only income then is poker run and shootout entries.

just snowboarded with my BIL that works for the Department of the Interior.
He stated they are preparing for a hard closure of all federal lands effective Jan 21 and lasting 100 days.

If true, NFW Desert Storm Happens.

That 100 days will turn into 300 :).

I’d love to see the science that shows closing open space and federal land will slow the spread of the virus.

website said registration opens 01.01.2021.
checked today and it is not open and nothing posted.
was friends on FB with Christina, but that ended after her very unprofessional response to Todd when he announced he was no longer associated with DS.

Camped with Todd recently, he didn’t sound to convinced it was gonna happen, especially with the new administration. Most of the events he’s working on now are out of state.

At the same time Hammer Town is gonna happen but I think they are going to require negative tests within 72 hours of attending.

Interesting posting today on Facebook. The annual RockabillyReunion event at Havasu State Park was originally scheduled for mid-February. It is now being advertised as April 30-May 2 (still at Havasu State Park). Did they get an approval from the AZ Park Service for the later date? Don't know, but I'll find out.

My wife was on their site yesterday and it still listed the Feb dates, to which I said I doubt it will happen......then this post of yours

I heard on the radio this morning they were converting Dodger Stadium into a full on vacination center...

It will be the Biggest VC in the nation capable of 12k vaccines per day!

If this Does happen, and the hospitalization rate finally falls, maybe the world could get back to normal?

DS is probably my favorite event!

Will they even get that many vaccines a day ?

LOL'ing....@back to normal🙄🤣🤣
X2.. Large gatherings are going to be tough to get permits for in 2021. Boating events will be even tougher..
Too many boaters are Trump supporters so we may very well be last in line for anything

stop with the negativity :)
as governments continue to not allow these events, we are at risk of never having them again.

IMO, DS could leverage KOH as an example to get it done. Folks may not like all the requirements to attend KOH, but that event is moving forward and will take place.

No negativity here! I’ll still be here that weekend. Still looking forward to seeing the new hardware and checking out the updates on others. I’ll miss the street fair for sure. It’s the best day in Havasu all year IMO.
Agree 100% on the requirements. Doubt they could get everyone to wear masks in Havasu. Getting the boating group to get proof of a negative test would be a bitch.

Supercat fest west is supposed to be weekend before. We’re going out for that and staying through desert storm whether it’s a go or not. We boatin’!
But I hope it’s a go. Got a buddy strongly considering being his 42 cig from Tennessee out and buddies from jersey and Florida flying in to run with us. Either way we boat but it would be nice for them to see the real thing since they have never been.
