Here is the e-mail that I sent to all registered attendees for the Texas FROG Roundup back on July 24. I also posted the cancellation on the event listing on the FROG website. Apparently, I missed also posting it here:
After monitoring the Covid case growth and the restrictions in place in Texas, and after speaking several times with Becky Vawter, I have decided that we will cancel the 2020 Texas FROG Roundup in Kerrville
. Although I regret having to make that decision, the safety of our members and of everyone else involved in putting on a rally has to be the primary consideration. I appreciate your support and understanding.
Becky is understandably disappointed, particularly in light of the work that she and Jack and her entire team have put into the event, but she understands the need for the decision. She has contacted Jennifer at Buckhorn Lake Resort to let her know about the cancellation, and will be contacting the caterer and everyone else involved.
Jennifer and the folks at Buckhorn are, of course, also disappointed but understanding. The have graciously agreed to extend a couple of options:
- If you want to camp on your own during the time when the FROG Roundup was scheduled, you can do that at the rally rate. October is a prime time for the Hill Country. As a courtesy, Jennifer asked that you call and let Buckhorn know that you want to keep your reservation.
- If you want to cancel, and you call by the end of the day on Friday, July 31, you can cancel and Buckhorn Lake will waive the $10 cancellation fee. After next Friday, the cancellation fee will apply.
Buckhorn Lake Resort’s telephone number is (830) 895-0007.
If you have paid a rally fee, Becky will be refunding that to you.
Circumstances permitting, we plan to return to Buckhorn Lake Resort next year to resume the Texas FROG Roundup, one of FROG’s longest-running events. We’ll be announcing the dates once the dust has settled.
Thank you again for your understanding, and special thanks to Becky and her team for all of their great work in making this such an outstanding event.
