   This while a difficult decision, is the right call.

  Dealing with it early gives people the time horizon to adjust their plans, and with no monetary penalties. It also provides an earlier piece of mind.

  We'll get through this. We're used to adversity. Heck... we're AMC'ers ...  Can of corn !

Better to be safe than sorry. The huge amount of work the host chapter puts in would be a big waste if it gets cancelled closer to the time. This way members can get refunds and make other plans. I'm also bummed as this and the Concours I was going to attend the next weekend are both cancelled....so much for 3 weeks on the road doing car stuff :(

If we all follow the rules and do what the specialists are telling us to do this will end faster! Stay home and get those cars looking even better for 2021!!!

Colorado, like the rest of the United States and the world, is under great stress due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Many countries have closed their borders, including between Canada and the United States. Gatherings have had their numbers drastically decreased, if held at all. As a result, the AMO Board of Directors met via conference call on Friday, March 20th, 2020 to review the situation with input from the Northern Colorado AMC, Great Lakes Classic AMC and Tennessee Valley AMC clubs. They voted to postpone the 2020 International Convention scheduled for June 17-20, 2020 in Colorado Springs and reschedule the show for 2021. This decision was not made lightly. Given the many restrictions in place and warnings from government leaders that those may be in effect for months, AMO had no choice but to move the show to 2021.

A new date has not been set, but we expect it to be in June 2021. Terry Gale has confirmed that a Rambler Ranch Tour will still be an integral part of the show at that time. The 2022 show will now be in Michigan and hosted by the Great Lakes Classic AMC chapter, followed by 2023 in the greater Knoxville Tennessee area hosted by the Tennessee Valley AMC Club. We hope to have more information in the next issue of American Motoring.

For those who have already registered, you can request a refund of your registration, or AMO can hold your registration and apply it to the 2021 convention. The choice is yours, but please let us know as soon as possible how you would like to proceed. You can request a refund by contacting Derek Dorroh at his email: amomembership@gmail.com or by phone at (919) 795-3530. Refunds will be issued within 2 weeks of your request.

If you have made reservations at the host hotel, please call to cancel them now. If you fail to cancel your reservations, you will be charged whether you show up or not. The hotel phone number is (719) 576-5900.

All other questions about the Colorado show can be directed to Austin Hosterman of the Northern Colorado AMC Club via his email: amxdriver73@yahoo.com, or by phone at (970) 593-2623.

Since AMO has no written policy for refunds, I always wait until the last minute to register. We have elderly people in our family and have had to cancel planned trips because of family emergencies. If I cancel because I change my mind, I consider money prepaid as a donation. However, a family emergency is different. There should be a refund policy for cause and with time limitations. Failing that, I pay as late as possible. I know it makes planning hard, but if the policy changed I would pay a year ahead. I make accommodation reservations a year ahead, but they are always cancellable.

I had to cancel last year due to a family medical emergency and was issued a refund.  I don't remember exactly when I canceled, but it was probably at least 30 days prior.
