SARA's New Normal

posted Jul 15, 2020, 9:06 AM by SARA Administrator
After 3 months away from SARA returned to flight in June of 2020 with some common sense precautions in place that comply with state and local laws and help insure the health and safety of our attendees. For the foreseeable future, SARA launches will follow these guidelines:
  • Launches will be for members only, and limited to 30 attendees.
  • Preregistration is required. Priority given to current members, then recent members who renew before the launch, and then the general public who become members before the launch. Pre-registration is not a reservation; attendance will be on a first come, first served basis, so sign up as soon as you can. Generally speaking, if the pre-registration form is still accepting registrations, you are likely to have a spot at the launch.
  • If you don't like the terms on the pre-registration form, you should stay home. It's common sense stuff for running a group event during a pandemic, designed to help ensure the safety of our attendees. We're trying to make the best of a challenging situation, so we ask for your patience and cooperation.
  • There is a mandatory $5 fee (even for members) to cover the new cost of the port-a-potty SARA is required to provide, since access to the traditional TIMPA facilities will be limited. This fee applies to all attendees, even if you don't use the facilities.
  • Details are in the pre-registration form, but key provisions include:
    • - Face masks are mandatory
    • - Social distancing at all times
    • - If you or anyone in your family are sick or may have been exposed to someone who's sick, stay home.
    • - Consider staying home if you or any family member is at an increased risk of COVID-19 complications.
    • - Attendees may be required to help prepare the field for use, depending on field conditions
