Tough Enough Cancelled

Hart Kornell has announced that April's event will not go ahead.  He writes:

As of this writing, New Year's Day, the pandemic is accelerating in the US, in California, and in our county. Anecdotally, this afternoon's walk toward Inspiration resulted in an early turn-around to escape the many hikers who were not wearing masks. It would be naïve to think the local caseload will diminish soon.. Or, as a declarative sentence, the caseload won’t diminish soon. Hopefully by next September.

In any event, this year there will be no event.

Keep your distance, stick to your pod, and speaking as a former hospital janitor, wear your masks.
