Hello Guild Members – after consulting with the chapters and executive, I have decided the Guild tasting sessions for March and April are canceled. Please do not attend.
The purpose of all the cancellations going on now due to the COVID-19 are to prevent its spread. Gatherings of just about any size can inadvertently spread this easily transmitted virus. What is different about this one is while most people recover, it is very easily spread and is very significant for some people who do get it.
The March tasting was to be Rhone wines and they have already been delivered to the chapters. Can the chapter people please keep those wines appropriately stored.
My hope is that we can resume normal operations in May with the Rhone tasting. June is the AGM hosted by Mainland and is Sparkling. We will then have Victoria do the Chardonnay that was scheduled for April in September and Nanaimo the Bordeaux tasting that was scheduled for May in October. We can then resume the normal rotation with November and a new plan.
Attached is the revised schedule for this year.
Thank you all for your understanding and good health.
