Its not erring on the side of caution. Its doing necessary actions to disrupt viral spread, though all of *this* should have been done 5, 7, 9 days ago.

We had a club meeting tonight. Definitely a topic of conversation. We discussed any action we might need to take for our next couple tournaments, one being one of our big A-Tier events.

Through it all, the agreement seemed to be...if the PDGA cancels sanctioned events, we would be in immense financial trouble. Having already worked with Discraft to procure merch our early A Tier, season raffle items and refurbishment of our club inventory, much of that could be dead money, if unable to move it quickly. Not to mention the other stellar player pack merch that we would get stuck with. Tentatively discussed amending our refund policy and actions we might take for our leagues and non sanctioned events.

It was a lively part of the meeting. Sure are weird and crazy times.

Im with you. But even meaningful social distancing (what a dumb term) a week ago would have meant a significant lessening of the surge placed on our public health infrastructure thats now imminent.

This is the ****storm happening in literally every industry tight now. I know corporate event planners that are essentially out of business already and scrambling to find a new formats to offer groups. I work at a ski area and we are considering ending our season early, and we are not the only ones. Supply chains are in shambles around the globe and honestly this fallout is going to be insane over the next few months. We havent even felt the first ripples of this yet realistically, were just hearing about them. Wait until the major metro areas get hit, medical services bottleneck and people start to actually panic!

Every industry is about to take a massive hit either directly or indirectly. I truly hope in a few months were still complaining about inconveniences.

It's starting to cascade now. Any event needing a permit from local officials is in jeopardy. I wouldn't want to be a TD planning a big A tier right now.

The College Championships is a slightly unique event in that everything is at the whim of universities. The course is on a university campus, so if Winthrop doesn't want people there, there's nothing anyone can do about it. Additionally, all of these teams are representatives of their own universities. If their university puts a freeze on any affiliate teams/clubs traveling, then those teams are SOL. The administrations don't want teams traveling away, contracting the virus on the trip, and then coming back and spreading it to 15,000 more people in the cess-pool of campus life.

Agreed, but some industries will get hit harder than others. Really impossible to say how all this will play out.
