Why take a chance of being infected with coronavireu just to have a fishing tournament. Let's be sensible about it.

Notice the precautions being taken.

IF people don't want to go, they won't. SO...if you don't want to, don't go.

Yes, let's be sensible about this.

If you want to take a foolish chance with your lives, then go right ahead.

Thank you for the permission.

A little cut and paste for ya: https://www.morozkoforge.com/post/the-curve-is-already-flat

We have been too busy shaming our neighbors for getting fresh air and hoarding toilet paper to consider that we are being driven by fear, not fact and that it has shut down our ability to recognize inconsistencies and look for answers. Instead, we call anyone who questions the “sky is falling” narrative selfish, stupid, and irresponsible because aligning with the prevailing moral outrage renders us impervious to criticism.

Incidentally, there exists a great deal of ACTUAL information our there vs. the sensationalism that, by it's nature, is there to generate clicks or sales. Most folks won't go look for it, but will just take what is spooned to us. That is, if you want to look a the history of this sort of thing, or make an informed decision, or have a conversation that is deeper than the talking points from social media, you may have to get past MSN or CNN or whatever click-bait news feed.

If you are actually interested.

I won't respond to this any further. You can have the last word.

The last word is that this has been cancelled as of yesterday. Ted has more sense than you do.

The ACTUAL information is 1 out of every 26 people that contract it DIE. Compare that to the common flu, like Fox News has been doing, 1 out of every 1000. It’s 36 time more deadly! If you look at the ACTUAL data we still have not peaked at the top of the curve.

After talking with our sponsors, volunteers and past participants we have made the following decision..

"I regret that we must announce the cancellation of the 11th World Championship Bass on the Fly Fishing Tournament which was scheduled for May 2, 2020.
It is very doubtful that the various shelter in place orders will be lifted by May 2nd. While we might be able to work around some of the restrictions the real point is to eliminate the risk of exposure for everyone involved.
If you have registered at ianglertournament.com we will make sure your money is refunded unless you let me know otherwise.
We do not plan to reschedule for later in 2020 at this time. If things clear up, we may try to do something simple in the Fall.
I hope you can still get out and do some fishing in your area and catch a big one!"
Be Well, Fish On.
