This year with the advance of the Delta variant of COVID the dinner on Friday evening before the show will be held in the Church of Christ gym, 1900 W. Rogers, Skiatook. This is for all members and guests that are coming to the show.
It will be at 6:00 PM, but in order to keep everyone safe we are asking that attendees wear a mask when inside and not eating. This isn't required, but just a request.
Please let me know how many hope to be there so we can have enough food - Macs BBQ.
Good question, David. And the easy answer is "badly" But that is a bit too easy.
Skiatook's downtown is in Tulsa County while our house is in Osage County. So it is hard to get a good handle on what is happening in Skiatook since Tulsa swamps Tulsa County and Osage County has a very small population so one or two cases make a huge difference.
But recently they've come up with a map that shows the # of cases per capita by zip code. And unfortunately our zip code, 74070, is in the 2nd-worst tier of zip codes. And, we are literally next door to one that is in the worst tier.
That map also provides other information, including the percentage of people who've had the vaccine. Turns out that our zip code has a low percentage of those fully vaccinated - 20 to 30%. And again we are next door to one that only has 10 to 20% fully vaccinated.
I say all of that to say that I'm getting very concerned about bringing people here for the show. In fact, I've set next Friday, meaning the 20th, to decide if I think we should have the show this year.
