At 2:45 AM this morning I sent a version of this email to all entries and the spectator and announcement list for Boomershoot:
Boomershoot 2020 is five weeks away and COVID-19 infections are still increasing across the country. I’ve had several people tell me they are not coming this year. Many states, including Idaho, have travel and social contact restrictions.
I’m canceling Boomershoot 2020.
I’m sorry to do this but both the legal and moral issues don’t give me any other options.

There has been a Boomershoot every year since 1998. It makes me sad to know that continuous record will be broken. I considered rescheduling for this fall but the end of fire season and the beginning of mud season is too unpredictable.
