I hope all of you are doing well and staying safe, during this COVID-19 pandemic. Although it was a difficult decision, the OLRCB Executive Board, unfortunately, felt we had no choice but to cancel the May 1 st and 2 nd state convention show in Albany. The latest Executive Order from Oregon Governor Brown has ordered us to “Stay at Home”, until rescinded. We weighed the real hardship of cancelling the show against the concern for our membership’s health and wellbeing, with an eye on our fiscal responsibility to the membership. We have not ruled out looking for an opportunity to hold a show in the fall or winter. Due to the uncertainty of the virus and the length of the restrictions on travel, public gatherings, etc., we have not made any concrete plans.
The Royalty committee and I are committed to insuring we make the opportunity to attend ARBA convention in Pennsylvania available to our Youth. We are exploring options to hold some version of a Royalty contest. The contest will not look or feel like it has in the past, but we are doing our best to find an alternative. Due to the uncertainty of the length of the executive order, I am in a holding pattern to find the best options, available. I extended the due date for Applications for Royalty, Management and Achievement to April 10 th . We will not be extending this deadline, again. Management and Achievement Applications will be scored, and the results will be announced at a later time.
The teams for ARBA convention will be chosen from the Youth, who submit Royalty Applications. Anyone, who wishes to represent Oregon in Pennsylvania or participate in any Royalty events, is REQUIRED to send in a Royalty Application by the postmarked April 10 th deadline.
Thank-you, for your understanding and patience, as we move forward.
Linda Eubank OLRCB President Oregon Royalty Committee
