In light of the current COVID-19 pendemic and the CDC’s recent recommendation regarding large gatherings, the Executive Directors of the Northern Lights Pyrotechnic Club has made the painful decision to suspend all planning for this year’s festival. As you can imagine, we do not take this difficult decision lightly, but one we had to make for the safety of the community and our members. While we are entertaining the possibility of moving to a different site at a later date in 2020, it is not something we are ready to officially announce at this time. We will keep everyone up to date if we are able to secure another location and date to hold the event. Hang in there everyone, better days are coming!

It will be interesting to see how long the various government agencies keep their restrictions up on the virus vs the losses that businesses can take before they cannot recover.
Hope you guys can bounce back and praying no demo's scheduled for late April early May that I usually attend are cancelled.
By the way here in Tennessee our flu season always end between the 1-3 week in April, keeping fingers crossed.

Is there any thought yet about 2021? I am not sure I could even make it, but still interested. We're still waiting to see if we have a season. I know the Spring things will be iffy, but I think by July we should have most everyone vaccinated that wants it, so I am all for resuming normal life by then.

If we hold it Florida or call it a peaceful protest it would be no problem.

We will be "officially announcing" shortly, but April MAFF isn't going to happen for several reasons, the biggest of which obviously is the continued restrictions in place.

Looking back at the pandemic, or whatever you want to call it, you basically hit the nail on the head.
So many businesses put out of business, lives destroyed by the riots, children suffering from weird ailments from the vaccinations, country was torn in half, people got used to staying home and no longer looking to work and know we are staring at incredible inflation, high interest rates, fossilfuels under attack, etc, etc....
Crazy these past almost 3 years!!

What concerns me here is the contrary to science political views expressed. Don't get me wrong as I am from Canada and am not involved in the politics of the USA. The contrary to science politically driven opinions have become to be viewed as fact by portions of the population of all western countries. This is because of a lack of science education makes the population vulnerable to misinformation from politicians and corporations. The reduction in deaths from infectious diseases due to vaccines and fossil fuel caused global warming are well established science. Anyone with an education in science could look at pandemic death records dating back centuries to find the benefit to human health from vaccines and the current science of the covid vaccines. The science on CO2 causing global warming goes all the way back to Eunice Foote's Experiment in 1859 and is established beyond any reasonable doubt. However due to lack of science education politicians and corporations continue to be successful at convincing a portion of the population of misinformation beneficial to them and not the general public or the future of western democratic countries. The Russians are helping with this misinformation through misinformation digitally distributed.
This lack of science information is also why China is becoming a real competitor for global dominance over the USA and other western democratic countries because they do educate their students in science. In 2006 I was in the Grand Sun Hotel Liuyang Hunan China working on fireworks composition tables when 3 female students whose education I was sponsoring came to the hotel and expressed an interest in the chemistry I was working on. Being surprised that 3 15 year old girls would have and understanding of chemistry I asked them if they understood the chemical formulas listed in the composition tables. All 3 of them were able to identify every element in the composition tables with one exception. One girl mistakenly identified carbon as copper to which the other 2 girls said " how could you get that wrong as it is only the 6th element on the periodic table". I have told this story to people in Canada, the USA and the UK and the response is always something to the effect of I can't imagine that happening in my country.
That is why China will continue to rise, because of better education. That is what we have to fix here in the western democratic countries. Well educated people is what we need. That is what we should be demanding from our governments for our future and the future of our children.
Also science is why we have fireworks.

But, if we are better informed, then the govt cant take over as easy and manipulate our way of thinking to their radical ideological way of portraying information to the general public... lol
