2020 Utah Wild Sheep Banquet Has Been Cancelled
March 19, 2020
Dear Utah WSF Members, Sponsors and Banquet Attendees:
Re: Utah WSF Banquet scheduled for April, 18, 2020--CANCELLED--
The Board of Directors of Utah WSF, after much discussion and with great regret, hereby announces the cancellation of our banquet and fundraising event, scheduled for Saturday, April 18th 2020.
Taking into consideration the health and wellbeing of our members and banquet attendees and in light of the State and Federal limitations on public gatherings, we feel that it is our social responsibility to limit the risk of spreading Covid-19 by cancelling our April event.
If you have already purchased tickets for the event, please contact us through our website www.utahwsf.org to request a refund or to apply your purchase to our 2021 banquet fundraiser. We are currently working through the logistics of an online auction/sale of our remaining conservation permits and draw hunts that were planned to be offered at our April banquet. There will be financial consequences to the chapter as a result of this cancellation and obviously our goal is to be as fiscally responsible as possible as we make these difficult decisions. Any support you can give during these uncertain economic times is greatly appreciated and tax-deductible donations can be made through our website as well.
We are all dealing with a lot of uncertainty in respect to this pandemic and as a Board of Directors, the safety of our families, friends and the hunting community are of utmost importance. However, the resilience of sheep hunters is unquestionable and we are certain that we will weather this storm and continue the conservation work that has defined our organization for the last 30 years!
As things move forward over the next few weeks, we anticipate being in a position to schedule a summer social event to bring together Utah’s sheep hunting community. Please follow our social media outlets and website for additional information regarding the online auction event and the summer social.
President, Utah WSF
