Your executive committee is moving forward with plans for a 2021 Krog-In. Watch here for details.

June 26, 2020

RE: Postponement of NWKKOG Rendezvous scheduled for September 21-25, 2020 until September 2021

Dear Fellow NWKKOG Members,

The Executive Committee met today to discuss and finalize plans for the 2020 Fall Rendezvous. Out of an abundance of caution, we have unanimously decided to postpone the 2020 event due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. It simply makes no sense to bring together the membership in close quarters until the pandemic is brought under control, and it is once again safe for us to socialize as we have in the past. Additionally uncertainty regarding the opening of the US/Canadian border further complicates matters for some of our membership.

The NWKKOG Executive Committee (Brad Popovich, Ginger Marshall, Julie Lund, Sean Kelly, Jan Chapman and Neal Parker)
