Hello friends.

This morning, during Governor Inslee’s press conference, he issued an order to close all restaurants and bars, including gatherings of 50 or more, with strong guidance that if you were approaching the 50 number, to err on the side of cancellation, not fudging the numbers. During that briefing King County announced that they expect, that unless we can “flatten the curve”, the number of COVID-19 cases could double, every 5-10 days.  We support the Governor’s decision, making a tough call, and as such, the PSBTA Board has made the decision to cancel the PSBTA meeting for March 19. 

Initially we were expecting a 30 day order, but today they announced until March 31.  Remaining optimistic, we will keep our April 16th meeting, at Hotel 1000.  Anyone that has already registered and paid for March, will have that registration moved to the April meeting.

We’ve watched each of you impacted by the changes in our travel environment, and it hurts my heart to see y’all hurting.  We are all effected by the state of the world, and we’ll be there for each other, the entire way through this. And beyond.   

The value of our relationships and friendships is so important, and I am thankful to include you in both of those categories.

Cheers,

Robert
