    Title says it all.

    Hope Not.
    Reveals for Oct dont look good right now either.
    I did just look at the events page and its pretty bleak this year. Several still up I know are canceled.
    Expo isn't listed.
    Cal Extreme not listed but see no way that one can happen at end of July.
    Hoping for Oct events, could happen.
    Pin a Go Go in Dixon for Oct 9-11 looks promising.

    Obviously not officially as of yet, but I don’t doubt it.
    All my other planned conventions and other hobbies have been canceled for September/October.
    I hope Americade isn’t canceled :/

    I saw the FB page and looks really empty this year....

    You should direct that question to the Governor of Illinois.

    If it hasn't been cancelled yet, I'm sure it will be soon. I expect everything of that nature to be completely off the table, at least until 2021.

    Unfortunately, I don't see it it happening or Pinball At The Zoo...they will wait until a week or so prior and then sadly state no show. That way there are no fines for canceling the hotel and or placed of show. Like Dave mentioned , if the gov won't allow more than 50 humans together

    Look here:

    https://www.chicago.gov/city/en/sites/covid-19/home/emergency-travel-order.html

    If you are coming from a State listed, you "shall be subject to mandatory self-quarantine for 14 days or the duration of the person’s presence in Chicago, whichever is shorter".

    Whatever that exactly means, it sounds like you would not be running around the hotel, socializing. (Incidentally, Westin requires wearing of masks in all public areas of the hotel.)

    This list is updated every Tuesday to go in effect the following Friday. So, it's a crap shoot each week if you are deemed ok or not. You could make plans but get "quarantined" just before Expo.

    For those who fly directly into Chicago, add $200+ bucks for refundable fares. If you drive there from out-of-state, here's info from a list updated August 12, 2020:

    "Illinois: There are no statewide quarantine orders, but Chicago has its own two-week quarantine mandate for anyone arriving from a long list of states that have experienced “a surge in new COVID-19 cases.” Quarantine is necessary even if you have proof of a negative COVID-19 test.

    Penalties: Violators are subject to fines of $100 to $500 per day, up to $7,000."

    Don’t worry about mandatory self-quarantine, there’s no Expo. Official cancellation is just a formality.

    It does not seem to be very positive news ...

    Thanks for the update.... NT.

    Not happening.

    PIN A GO GO is now canceled for 2020.
    55 days till Expo in Chicago.
    Website has no new updates.
    Still does not look good for a show.

    Now that that dipshit is gone I was going to do the show with Don H. again, I heard from him the show was cancelled awhile back.

    I would think events in 2021 will start to be canceled.

    Be interesting how such a think is enforced if people are driving in.
