On Thursday March 12, 2020 Ohio Governor Mike DeWine announced that mass gatherings of more than 100 people are banned in Ohio. He also closed all schools for 3 weeks. On Sunday March 15, 2020 the governor ordered all Ohio bars and restaurants to close by 9 p.m. Sunday. The governor restricted restaurants to carry out or delivery service. In addition, the governor to protect the public further is considering closing schools for the remainder of the year. The CDC has issued new guidelines reducing the meeting size from 100 to 50 for at least 8 weeks.
Our staff has made the determination that we cannot move forward with our event on the original scheduled date of April 4, 2020. Therefore, we have rescheduled for September 12, 2020 at the Inverness Club. In the next week those who made reservations will receive a letter outlining options to keep your reservation or receive a refund.
The Hall of Fame Staff has worked very hard on this event and the new nominees are so deserving of their night of recognition. However, the health and welfare of the attendees, nominees and food service workers involved is our utmost concern.
We urge you all to take care of yourself and family, and heed the advice given by the medical professionals. Remain positive and we will get through this together. Once a Polar Bear, always a Polar Bear. God Bless you and Keep you and this great nation of ours.
Thank you for your understanding.
