It's way to early and honestly I have a couple of other problems right now. But also I will not cancel hotels and flights right now but stick with my decision.

Full support for the decision to postpone the DO. I hopefully will make it then. Stay safe and keep distance

With Queensland closing the borders to southern states, and even more lock downs the chances of even organizing a dinner for us locals is getting more remote.

Yup - the closure of the Qld border now rules us out for a dinner catchup that WE ...will need to work out how to cancel our Va flights...one booked using Amex Travel credit and the other via the ANZ Travel Adventures Visa card which has since been cancelled. I fully anticipate NSW to go into complete lockdown (ie stay at home) anyway within a week. Can we have a virtual dinner (I guess BYO food / alcohol)?!

Have been that busy with clients for the last couple of weeks (until this afternoon, it's taken a hiatus) that I haven't been able to focus on Ozfest. Had 3 speakers lined up and was working on a new Tour, but now will tell them to set their diary for 2021. Will be sad to miss a year, but this virus has got in the way. We're still not in lockdown, but will depend on numbers getting the disease (hoping the curve flattens to less than USA, UK and Italy).

My friend lives in Auckland. He told me that the country has a 30 day lock down. https://www.theguardian.com/world/20...-see-the-enemy

Here's my advice from 10 km from the New Rochelle NY epicenter of the CoronaVirus > STAY HOME. Many of us in the northern NYC suburbs have self quarantined for close to 3 weeks. We're managing. If you must go food shopping, load up; as to avoid mingling with people.

For now, the BRT (Brooklyn Reality Tour) is in the penalty box.

Stay safe.

BRT & Wine DO will resume in 2021 due to safety concerns. I hope to join Ozfest BNE in 2021 also.
