A major portion of swap meet attendance seems to be Canadians. Trudeau has just decreed that if a Canadian crosses into the U.S., he is unlikely to return home again until after a 14-day quarantine, under a penalty of thousands of dollars and a lengthy prison sentence. Negative Covid tests may help, but are no guarantee of escaping his edict.

I'm sure my details are sketchy, because I don't study the news anymore, but what I saw while passing by the TV was just that alarming.

The word I got from Windance is that their traditional April swap meet won't happen this year, but they are waiting to make a decision on the May and June swaps. Haven't seen anything from the CGW^2 yet.

Sadly, swap meets are more up to the state and federal governments than to Windance or the CGW2.

Given the current state of the pandemic in Oregon and areas surrounding Hood River Cnty, a CGW2 Memorial Day Weekend swap meet is unlikely. We are targeting end of June and/or July 4th weekend @ The Hood River Water Front's Lot #1 (Directly South of The Event Site). It will be a BIG one!

As another already pointed out, this matter will be largely up to State and local authorities, not any specific org.

Stay tuned. Stay safe and CU Sailin' !

Finally, please note that in 2019, The CGWA became The Columbia Gorge Wind & Water Assoc (CGW2) welcoming all Gorge Wind-Riders to participate in our efforts to establish, improve, maintain & protect Gorge launch sites for windsurfing, kiting, paddling & foiling.
