no idea what the future holds but as of now it is on. My intent is to have the show if i can. If there is some travel issues or if you can't have more than 10 people in a room i guess it will be a problem. A lot of people drive so that should be a plus. I can see large events cancelling where there are thousands of people but the number of people at the show is more like the numbers you might find at a grocery store so not sure what type of restrictions there might be.  If there are any changes i will post here, on FB sites, and my show website  www.chicagoswordshow.com

I extremely doubt this is going to happen. The situation in much of the US is unpleasant as is,

I agree. Not only bars, restaurants, & all tourist attractions are closed down, but the entire island of Kauai has a 9 PM - 5 AM curfew! And our governor is asking tourists to stay away for the next 30 days, so the chance that a sword meeting is going to happen is zilch.

On top of what was just mentioned the average age of the majority of participants is 50+ so you do the math.  I'm not into crap shoots with my health.

**********2020 Chicago SHOW CANCELLED*******

The hotel just contacted me to say in line with CDC guidelines they are cancelling all events in April. If you have a room reservation they should cancel it Tuesday and you will get an email. If you have paid for table(s) give me a week and i will contact you. I will have dates for 2021 shortly and hope to see you all then.

Disappointed about the cancelled Show... so in honor of all the good memories of past Shows... today I laid out my meager collection and am spending a little time looking at my blades. Not the same though......

 

Also treated myself to some incense, a tea sweet, and a bowl of matcha. Who knows, maybe I will sit down at my tea table and practice Chanoyu (tea ceremony).

 

Stay safe and healthy everyone. Looking forward to next year already!!!

Great Stuff, Mark. Nice Display.  Thanks for getting it out.  What do you have on the Kunikane daito? Oh, and thanks for the tea . . .    .
