It is with a regretful & heavy heart that your NTXB LLC in conjunction with Armadillo Acres has to inform you that we will be cancelling Myschevia 2020. As you know we have been deliberating for many months on how to handle our event safely, if at all. After much thought & communication with the landowner we both agreed it was in everyone’s best interest.
That said, the VIP (Volunteer Incentive Program) tickets will still be valid for the next event for those that qualify. Next week NTXB LLC will provide all VIP qualifiers an email that states this information. So, be on the lookout & save it in your archive!
As far as NTXB finances are concerned, we are currently in good standing to cover all NTXB related expenses for at least 18 months. We hope that in 2021 mass gatherings can commence & we can plan for a successful event.
Burns across the United States & the world have also had to cancel due to COVID-19. Cyberspace has been known to be the channel with which we can continue the spirit of our burn community. Check in with community organizers via Facebook for possible virtual events to attend.
Our reasoning behind moving up the release of our decision were due to several factors - the current climate of civil unrest, COVID-19 trending upwards after the incremental reopening & the owners of Armadillo Acres needing to make a statement promptly & concurrently. We respectfully urge you to follow www.cdc.gov & your local government for any & all COVID-19 related updates & safety measures. This is a link you can visit for COVID-19 testing www.hhs.gov. Please take care of yourselves! Hydrate! Take your vitamins! Eat well! Rest!
Again, this decision was not made lightly & given the nature of this virus, not justifiable to move forward.
In addition to the above, NTXB LLC cares about the safety of our participants of color. We'd like to officially state that we vehemently oppose racism & are in full support of the Black Lives Matter movement.
Please stay safe everyone, we miss you!
