We run a booth in hangar D selling hangars so everything is paid for, ready to go.
Wondering if anyone has heard if the show is considering cancelling?
Has anyone cancelled there own plans of coming?

just as a side note, i wrote SNF earlier this year questioning the poor conditions and distance of homebuilt parking last year. their response was that it would not be any better this year and that homebuilt parking was being moved farther south into what was the auto parking next to paradise city. so, worse taxi conditions, farther away, no facilities, and terrible transportation. just a heads up. I won't post the email in public, but I got the vibe that they don't care and don't really want us anyway. just my 2 cents, but Im staying home as are my dollars.

I plan on going and staying all week camping under the wing of the RV-4. What are the rules on bicycles? I'm a country flying, not used to lots of traffic. I was thinking about coming in early on the 30th. Are they already set up for fly-in arrivals?

Default Sun 'N Fun

I'm planning on going at least two days, flying in daily. I'm planning to (again) park in the old home built parking area as it's closest to the commercial displays. It's my way of saying to Sun 'N Fun that home builts do matter to their show success, and if they loose them, the show will go down hill fast.

Their words, not mine:

The 2020 SUN ?n FUN Aerospace Expo will proceed as scheduled. While we are aware of and monitoring the current circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 Virus, the event will continue as planned. As the primary fundraiser for the Aerospace Center for Excellence, we remain dedicated to creating limitless opportunities for today?s youth but are also committed to public health and safety. SUN ?n FUN is working closely on a daily basis with local, state, and federal agencies to plan for a safe event with appropriate precautions and safeguards in place. As a result of this information and the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for large events and festivals, we are proceeding with SUN ?n FUN 2020 with the health and safety of our attendees, staff, and volunteers, as our top priority.

I volunteer at S-n-F along with my EAA Chapter and we are full speed ahead at this point -- there are no plans to cancel the show.
