13th Annual West Coast Pipe Show 2021 has sadly been canciled
Date: Usually the first weekend in November. The website currently states the following:
Attention!! Concerning the 2021, 13th Annual West Coast Pipe Show; This has been an extremely difficult decision for Marty and I both but we need to do what we think is best for everyone concerned. We are cancelling the show for this year. Flying across the country with a face mask on and worrying about who has been Vaxed and who hasn’t, is a real concern. We will not be part of the Vax police worrying about who has been Vaxed and if they have not been , they need to wear a mask. We also feel that there are too many unresolved issues for us to be confident that a show can be conducted without fear of changes in regulations and requests. Our show is about having a great time together and enjoying our great hobby. We do not want hard feelings at our show. I am getting dates for a show next year. I will put the dates on the web site as soon as I have them. The best to everyone, Steve and Marty
