There will be increased spacing in seating and spectators may be limited in order to meet current guidelines. We will also have sanitization stations setup around the hotel & ballroom for you convenience.  As the city and state guidelines are currently changing at a rapid pace we we will not fully know what policies will be in place until just days before the event.
