GWRRA Wing Ding 42

 Dear GWRRA Friends   and Family,

After weeks of carefully monitoring the   ongoing spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), we have made the difficult   decision to cancel Wing Ding 42, scheduled to be held June 30 through July 4,   in Springfield, Missouri. 

The Gold Wing Road Riders Association has been   committed to observing the recommendations put forth by public health   officials since the beginning of this unprecedented situation.  The   most current information released by government and health care officials   continue with the recommendations to consider postponing meetings and   limiting attendance.  Therefore, the current environment makes it   impossible for us to hold a safe and enjoyable event for our attendees and   exhibitors.

We are all truly disappointed by having to   make this decision, but the latest guidance from public officials, and   continued uncertainty with the current situation makes it clear that the most   responsible decision is to put the safety and well-being of our members,   volunteers, exhibitors, sponsors, staff and service providers above anything   else. We want to thank our members, exhibitors, sponsors, service providers,   and the city of Springfield for their commitment and support during these   challenging weeks. We will continue to collaborate with the city of   Springfield and our service providers through this situation.

In the coming days we will be reaching out to   all those who have registered for the event with further details. Please hold   off on requesting refunds as we hope to have information on next year’s Wing   Ding soon and will give you the option to just transfer your registration to   2021. The CVB will be processing all room cancellations at one time. You   should receive an email from them soon. If you do not please contact Carrie   Chavez at 417-799-0408. Understand   that she is working remote so please be patient. She will get back to each   one of you as soon as she possibly can.  

We thank all of you for your support and   patience through all of these changes and uncertain times.

Stay safe and Safe   Riding,

Gold Wing Road   Riders Association

NC District Rally

Please note that there will NOT be a GRAND PRIZE Drawing for the 2020 Goldwing at this year's Wings Over the Smokies.
