    Will LSRU 2020 still happen this year? With South by Southwest being cancelled due to Corona Virus, this has been on my mind. Many of us have reservations and long-distance plans. It would be nice to have definite answers.
    I called Austin Chamber of Commerce and they knew nothing. They recommended calling Travis County Expo Center. I was unable to contact anyone there.
    Does anyone know anything?

    I saw a story yesterday that the Mayor of Austin has cancelled all Large Gatherings (over 2500 people) until May.

    It qould be nice if LSRU folks would give an update.

    As of right now this is all the info we have. The following press release came out this week and it is a little vague on what can and can't happen depending on the specific events and mitigation plans. http://www.kxan.com/news/coronavirus/large-gatherings-banned-in-austin-through-may-1-city-says/ The rodeo is planning on beginning at the Travis Co Expo Center this week and we are following this closely to see how this is all going to play out. We will keep you posted and appreciate all your support. We are still planning on having the show and hope it will happen the week of April 16-19, but if we have to postpone it due to a city/county directive, we will let you all know as soon as we know. We are already looking into possible alternative dates in case the we have to move the date. just so we know what options we have.

    Houston rodeo just cancelled.
    As of Friday all travel to the US from Europe will be prohibited, the UK is the only exception. The president also called on local and state leaders to cancel events. The head honcho of CDC stated it will get worse before it gets better.

    Just saw they cancelled the Austin Rodeo. Not a good sign for the Roundup, as they're held at the same venue.

    The Governor will be holding a press conference noon tomorrow. Money says an announcement to limit public gatherings is forthcoming.

    I know zilch about biology but even though a lot of people attend we are scattered about, not side by side like at a concert or sporting event so I would guess the risk is lower.

    But I wouldn't be surprised if it gets nixed.

    Rescheduled to Labor Day weekend 55C5FC98-598A-4851-8C2A-4080A448926E.jpeg D4DF9A74-98DB-48FA-8A13-1DDEC19D939B.jpeg

  18. Same weekend as the Invasion here in Dallas.
     
  19. Wow...really will just be a year of hanging out in the shop and getting stuff done. Actually, I hadn't planned on making this in April this year, but likely can in September and will even have my kids pu project done and on the road for a few months prior. Sounds like a road trip opportunity now.

    We’re very sorry to announce that due to the current and quickly unfolding public health crisis, we are forced to delay the dates for the 19th Annual Lonestar Round Up. We only had one option regarding dates that The Travis County Expo Center could accommodate us that was far enough in the future that we might not have to cancel or reschedule again..........we realize there are some conflicts with some car shows other places scheduled in the U.S. but we did not want to cancel altogether. The press release up above(in blue) from Lonestar Round Up website goes into more detail.
    The new dates for the show will be Labor Day weekend, September 4 & 5th, 2020

    Thank you, and stay safe
