    July 20-26. Using the same decision timeframe, RARA would make their decision if itís a go by the beginning of August.

    That's about when I figured. The Hot August Nights group is saying six weeks lead time and that sounded about right for all of these things.

    Every event is making their decisions based on the facts on the ground at the time they have to pull the trigger.

    I have an exec meeting for Seafair (29Jul-02Aug) on 19May. May know more before that but it indicates their timeline of decision-making.

    Fortunate that Reno is mid-Sep as it gives us more runway. I'm preparing for the best case scenario...and cautiously optimistic.

    Me too. I figure if I work hard to be ready for this year and it tanks, I'm just that ready for next year.

    Yessir. That's been my approach as well.

    I've submitted all FAA docs for three shows already and three more in work. Told every show that regardless of how much work I do in advance of the event, if it's cancelled due to pandemic they owe me nothing...we're just way ahead of schedule for 2021!

    Stay well, young man! Best to you both.

    Just got a call from RARA , phone survey asking if I bought a ticket for this year would I 1) donate $ 2) use funds for next year 3) request refund.... So it sounds like they are getting close to cancelling in my opinion .... On a side note we had tickets for this years Shakespeare at Lake Tahoe ...July 31 and they just cancelled ! and Toby Keith was postponed a year from July 11th ....

    Beer Nazi and I just purchased our first home together, it's set to close soon but I'm really hoping the move does not impede my ability to get there this year...

    Again, I'm thinking I'm there for the show and shine unofficial fly-in that's going to happen should RARA decide to stand down for the year.

    Also, once again, I've gotta say, it's going to be up to us fans to keep the interest up if we have to endure another 365 days of off season!

    Air Racing is going to need our help BIG TIME!

    Once I get moved, pull everything I have scattered around in various storage areas, get my scanners back on line, I'm ready to bring out a lot of my history of shooting at RENO. I've got a TON of video from the 80's and more, can't remember the dates but it's when Canon had their Hi8 camcorder out.. I bought one, still have it... don't work no more!!!

    Anyway, lots of stuff on those Hi8 tapes I have, got to figure an efficient way to transfer to digital!

    I have a ton of Hi8 family vids I need to convert as well.

    I've digitized 35 VHS family (up to 1996) vids already. To captured and edit and create a quality movie takes a a lot of hours (20+ hours each). I was doing 2 a year during the winter.

    I have a Sony stand alone Hi8 player I used for playback to save wear and tear on my Canon Hi 8 camera.

    Before I start with digitizing my 29 family Hi8s (1997-2007) I need to send in my Sony player and have new belts installed and get it serviced. The last time I used it (years ago) it ate a tape:-(
