2021 Club Days

Good morning everyone. I wanted to let everyone know that the Club Day Committee met last night via zoom and made some decisions about club days for 2021. Club Days will be held Saturday, February 20 at 1:00pm at the Fredonia Methodist Church. We discussed several options and feel we chose the one that is the safest and one everyone was happy with.

First let me get this out of the way there will NOT BE ANY MODEL MEETINGS THIS YEAR. After much discussion the issue wasn’t the day of the competition but getting together 3 or 4 times to practice. So, from that standpoint, it was decided to not do them this year (don’t worry they will be back next year) J. Model meetings are a requirement to receive the club purple or blue seals. The following decision was made to replace this requirement. In order to receive a purple seal a club needs 75% of individual club members to participate in the one of the following: Talks, Demonstrations, Show & Share, Music, Readings or Novelty or dance. 50% of members will be needed for a blue seal.

All the other events will happen in the following manner. We will plan to still host an in-person event, one club at a time. I will clean in between clubs before the next one comes in. We will also offer a virtual option of participating via zoom. There will not be an option to pre-record. This way members still get to do live presentations in front of a judge. IF FOR SOME REASON AS CLUB DAYS GETS CLOSER AND WE SEE AN INCREASE OF CASES EVERYONE WILL DO THE ZOOM OPTION. We will practice social distancing and masks should be worn in the church other than when you do your presentation. Parents will be required to follow these guidelines as well and we ask that you limit the number of people in attendance.

We will have some type of award presentation, we just don’t know if it will be zoom or FB Live yet, so stay tuned. The plan is to still have a regional event and I believe that will be a virtual event.
