    I just hope they're still making those Buffalo chicken wraps. If the farmers market is closed I'm turning around and going home. Gotta have the wraps.

    I love how every single meme gets posted 3 X on all five Corona threads. It's like an old friend coming back to visit again and again. I think I see Scarface TP every day.

    Memes will settle down as this ramps up.

    Is there a date when a second delay or cancelation will be given? In other words (for all our planning purposes) when will we know for sure if the show will go as planned. I need to know at least 3 weeks in advance but 4 or 5 weeks would be better. Ivan?

    I think it is going to be hard for Ivan to pin things down when things keep changing from day to day with the Corona Virus. If it was me I think I would either just cancel the show or push it back to late Summer or early Fall. I really don't see things being back to normal in June from everything I have seen on TV and keep reading about the Corona Virus. I think we will be lucky to be "back to normal" by the 2021 Allentown Show the ways things are playing out right now.

    There is strong possibility that FEMA will announce a National stay at home order for 10-12 weeks, this week.
    The country has reached the point not to worry about pinball shows till Fall, if were lucky.

    EXACTLY! I know people want "life as normal" but what we want and reality are two very different things. Personally I stocked up on everything weeks ago and don't plan to do much of anything but hanging around the house for at least the next three months. I keep finding stuff I would love to buy but I even hate the idea of traveling to meet up with people one on one right now let alone hang out with hundreds of people at a show of any type.

    This thing is very real and isn't going to go away quickly. And the information we are getting in the news / etc isn't the entire story. Hopefully I am wrong but I wouldn't bet on an Allentown pinball show anytime soon.

    I agree with you both. My wife has sever respiratory problems so I plan thing long in advance. If we get 4 weeks out with no announcement from Ivan I will need to say I am not coming. This is a problem as I have games to deliver. One person coming from Canada. That's why I asked for a date of cancelation. I like you do not think a show can safely be put on before Sept or October. At this point I hope the show is canceled and we find out as soon as possible. I support the show no matter what happens.
