Covid-19 Virus UPDATE: March 14th CANCELLED

Dear Friends;

We promised to keep you up to date as the Covid-19 emergency unfolds. So, we write this afternoon on Friday March 13th with this new news…

The Log & Timber Home Show & University, scheduled for March 14th, 2020, in Minneapolis, MN have been cancelled until further notice. We do not know what the future holds in regards to rescheduling in 2020, but it will greatly depend on the information from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s recommended health protocol.

This is disappointing for all, but prudent, given how much is unknown about Covid-19’s health risk. As of Monday March 16, we’re sending our staff home to work remotely and our company has banned travel or conference attendance. Our disappointment is compounded by the fact that the Minneapolis, MN Log & Timber Home Show was on course to be an excellent event for all involved, but, as it should, your health and safety come first.

Thank you for your understanding and for your support.
