There's no easy way to say this, our friends. Unfortunately, Skytalks has made the very difficult decision to not do an in-person event for 2021. Our full announcement is at skytalks.info. We are still discussing what, if any, virtual event we might do instead. 1/4

This is a good call. I mean, it also super sucks, but it's a wise decision, especially with vaccine takeup rates being what they are in a lot of western states.

The initial driver actually wasn't vaccination rates, believe it or not. Yeah, that's in the back of our mind, but the big thing that kicked it off is the vagaries in requirements from both State of Nevada and Clark County. 1/

There's some conflict in the directions coming out from them, and some things that we just weren't comfortable with (like the requirement for an event to collect contact information and retain it for contact tracing up to 60 days post-event). 2/

There's no sign of social distancing going away any time soon, either, and that makes both management of any kind of sizable line, not to mention seating in a ballroom, impractical from where we're looking. 3/
