As a group, in 100% consensus, under the guidance of a loving higher power, and with the health and safety of the Fellowship, and the family thereof in mind we have reached the following decision:
Given the unforeseen cancellation of our original date, the current state of public health, and the sheer logistics involved with trying to throw together an event that will be safe, enjoyable, and fiscally responsible within the necessary time frame; the Committee regrets to announce that we have voted unanimously to CANCEL the 2020 Smithville Lake Campout and not pursue a make up event.
We considered all options and agreed that the best course of action will be to focus all of our remaining time and resources into the 2021 Campout, and to make next year something truly special.
We apologize to anyone who was looking forward to this year trust us, we were too. But we feel this is the only responsible choice we could make.
We appreciate your understanding…this was a very difficult decision for us to make, and we did not make it lightly.
If you are interested in helping, we will be picking back up the regular Subcommittee meetings starting Friday, September 11, 2020 at No Excuses (1001 Pacific Street, KCMO) at 6:30pm, and then on the second Friday of every month following. We hope to see you there.
