Dear members, donors and friends of QDMA, the West Central Illinois Branch has decided, at the recommendation of our national headquarters in light of recent events, to follow suit with measures being taken by local municipalities, school districts, event centers, universities and colleges, and many others, and cancel our two upcoming events to avoid the possible spread of COVID-19 during this time. These events include our Grand Banquet on March 28th and the Youth Antler Scramble on April 4th, 2020.
With much of the work already done for both of these events, and many people having already registered, we are very disappointed in the timing of this national crisis. However, our Branch and the QDMA hold the health and well being of our members, friends and loved ones to be of the highest importance and our fund raising is of minimal concern by comparison. We thank everyone who has already registered and paid for these events, and know that you will all be fully refunded your payment. We will contact each of you in the coming days, regarding your refunds. Thank you for understanding this difficult decision.
