    I would have been surprised if they had decided otherwise.

    Definitely the right choice.
    I had thought I would likely go since I was scheduled to get the vaccine.
    But after thinking about the social distancing aspect - it would be difficult or impossible to have the contacts with other turners that makes the symposium so special.

    Prior to this pandemic mess, I had been looking forward to this one as Omaha is close enough to me to drive. So too bad, but given the safety concerns, I'm glad they canceled.
    Also, end of last year, a club asked me to do a demo on that Thurs and I agreed without checking my calendar closely. So at least now I don't have to reschedule that :)
