    Not sure

    We just had our group Nationals cancelled here in Australia.
    I guess it depends on your personal health and can you keep a safe distance (what ever that is) from other shooters at the match.
    You are in the "most at risk" demographic.

    Good Luck.

    48 hours ago I had a Dr. visit with somebody who is apparently a friend of Dr. Fauci.
    His word to me nothing, anywhere, in any venue, with 25-50 people or more would be advisable, if over 60 years old, you are asking for trouble. Take it for what it is worth.

    Iím 73. My age puts me in a high risk group, but I am pretty healthy........for my age.

    I donít want to be flippant about this. One of our major shipyard customers has just cancelled all working in confined areas, such as engine rooms and other cabin areas in vessels.
    boats.

    Tough call.

    Cool

    Yes. I am going. Car packed and all that stuff.
    It's a 60 min drive. Unless, there is traffic.....I have experienced 2 hours getting home....
    Someone has to open the gate. And hang targets......

    It is to be a nasty virus

    but honestly look at stats and how many people get ill and die from other illnesses....

    Yes we should be cautious but what, are we all going to hide in a bubble? The world must still go on. Take the appropriate precautions and use common sense. If one is ill say so and stay away from other people. Oh yah I forgot, common sense in this modern world is in short order. I think use ones discretion.

    On a side note, my GF was advised by her employer that if any staff travels outside of Canada they are expected to stay home for 14 days. Really? We were planning to go to Minot ND just to get away for a break, well we did not go. I am not to concerned. We have enough toilet paper anyway to last us a year.....LOL

    8 brave souls are shooting this weekend at Pencil Bluff. Not worried about the virus. Too damn cold for anything biological to survive.

    Flu and virus

    As per the internet, 50 Million people get the flu in the USA and 50,000 people die
    from the flu every year in the USA. A professor at Nebraska Medical Center
    has projected 96 million cases of Carona Virus and 480,000 deaths
    from the virus. Their is no tested vaccine for the virus as of this date.
    Michigan has 25 cases, Penna. has 41 case and New York has 429 cases.
    Schools, churches and rec centers are closed in Michigan. I do not think
    it is a good time to travel.

    I find it disappointing that anyone on this board would "not go out" because of a trumped up hysteria based on over-reporting of a virus....... this is P O L I T I C A L ! ! ! ! people......... so I cain't talk about it ......... but "Puh-LEEEEZE!!" when in two weeks the world HAS NOT FALLEN APART (as it was supposed to do by yesterday...) PLEASE do us all a favor and remember that fact!

    The truly terrible result of this is that hundreds of billions of dollars are going down the toilet...... this is truly the largest "disaster" as far as economic impact, of my lifetime.

    The financial effect of this madness dwarfs 9/11, dwarfs all the tornadoes/harricanes/earthquakes/volcanos I've experienced......

    I've been all over town today, to grocery stores, hardware stores, parts stores..... fast food joints...... spent time with my kids.....dropped off some video cards for one of them to upload to youtube......

    Just another day here in WA

    I'ma' go shoot now.

    FLU and VIRUS

    WA state has closed all K12 schools as of this past Friday.
    Wa has 641 virus cases and 35 virus deaths as of today.
    This thing can only get worse. I agree that the networks
    have over reported this issue but it could be for a good cause.

    Rarely, have I read anything so absolutely stupid.
    The good news is you're far ahead for this weeks Darwin award.
    Within a few weeks we will have treatment drugs rolling out, after that a vaccine down the road. As of right now......absolutely zero .
    Ultimately it wiil be handled......right now, most are behind the curve.

    I've done a lot of reading about the virus today. I'm taking it seriously. I work for a major hospital. They have put travel restrictions on us, such don't fly, don't go to Massachusetts etc. They can't stop you, but they require that you check with Occupational Medicine before coming back to work.

    We have several active cases in our community and these folks attended group functions before they were quarantined. I expect that I'll be required to work from home soon. My wife's job as a receptionist requires her to face the public every day, and some of them cough and sneeze without covering. I fully expect we are both going to get it. She is 64 and I'm almost 69. Life could get very dicey for us. Fortunately, our town has offered to bring food to those that are quarantined.

    Get ready for life to get really strange.
