It takes a full year of advance planning to pull off the Hershey meet, with lots of money being spent and collected months in advance. The uncertainty of when comrade governor Wolfe of PA will allow such a large gathering to take place all but made the decision by the Hershey Region for them.

Think of it on the positive side. We will all have almost 1-1/2 years to save more money to spend at Hershey in 2021 plus all of those special parts that we all are looking for won't be sold this year ,and will be available for us next year.

Better to die of old age rather than gasping for your breath in a respirator!

Iím not sure I understand why, if there is a fear of catching a virus at a car event that it cannot be left up to free thinking people to decide to go or not, when have we become so afraid of everything that we are willing to miss out on life.
As Americans we have been through so much worse, but never stopped or gave up moving ahead when it looked bleak.

It's been clear as day since mid April there would not be a Hershey this year.

There might not be a Chickasaw or Hershey in 2021 either unless they find a treatment or vaccine.

That America of which you speak, where we respected law and order and said the pledge of allegiance..that America? the land of the free? home of the brave? its disappearing before our eyes.Those who raised me survived the depression,won world war 2 and created the greatest economy the world has know.. its seems that spirit is is hard to find today..

Huge? Hmmm; the unemployment rate in Las Vegas is 33% at the moment, which beats the depression in Greece and the Great Depression of the 1930s.

Corona has thrown the middle class head first down a toilet; going to Hershey isn't cheap, I don't see 2021 being huge.

Thanks to the folks that had the good sense to cancel. We can act brave until we catch the virus and infect a lot of innocent people. I say follow the science. When a vaccine is developed, I will consider going again.

I am sad to think that in four days we acknowledge D-Day 6-6-1944, and how all the freedoms we still have now were given to us by just one of those days in history, I cannot imagine how those young soldiers felt getting of those boats knowing they were walking in to there deaths, and what they would think of us now being afraid to walk into a store, outdoor car show, or giving a loved one a hug, because of some virus, so much has been sacrificed for us,what would have happened if they decided to to be “safe”and stayed on the boats? They gave us the life to live to enjoy the ability to have hobbies especially old cars when it could have gone the other way and life would have gone in a terrible direction.

I guess the issue is that the actions of the free thinking will impact on other people. You may decide that you are prepared to take the risk and attend . Personally I wouldn't but fine it's your choice and in a world were you didn't interact with any one else for two weeks post attending that would be ok. Bringing the virus home with you and spreading it to others who had decided not to take the risk takes away their choice in the matter.

Still a shame that it won't go ahead !
