2020 Mt Dora Come Around Update (20200317)

With the COVID-19 circulating and with various restrictions and unknowns, we are considering moving the Mt Dora comearound to a later date.

I have been in talks with Southern Palms RV Park and they have been advised by their parent company to put a ban on group activities for the next thirty days. That means their pool, clubhouse and the building we would use, “Pine’s Hall”, are closed. At this time the campground has no idea if the ban will need to be extended and we will be in communication with them periodically to check the status. Currently they say most businesses and restaurants are open but that may change.

I therefore feel we should “preemptively” move the comearound to a later date.
I am suggesting early June. That would move it after Memorial Day, but before Father’s Day. The week of June 8th through June 15th is open at Southern Palms. Later in June or July are options but scheduling probably becomes more difficult with summer travel plans in the works. While June or later are certainly warm in Florida we will have the use of a newly remodeled air-conditioned building (Pine’s Hall).

There are certainly going to be people who cannot make the revised dates. Hopefully that number remains small enough that a good group can still make the comearound.
If you must cancel all money will be refunded as long as you are two weeks in advance of the reservation date.

Making a decision now to move the date will facilitate better planning as we are going to have to make a trip there to make commitments to restaurants, museums, tours, etc.

We would appreciate opinions before we move ahead and formally reschedule.
This will be posted to the RV Chapter Facebook page to facilitate discussion. Also in a few weeks I will directly be contacting current attendees to working on a conclusive date.

As much as we don’t like having to move the date, we do feel it is in everyone’s best interest.

Thanks for your support – Dale and Su Gange
