Save the date! Annual banquet rescheduled for November 7, 2020

The Trailblazers Board of Directors has decided that the ever-changing situation of the Coronavirus outbreak has made it inappropriate at this time to hold its annual banquet as planned on April 4th . The 76th annual event will now be held on Saturday, November 7, 2020 at the same location in Carson, California.

The directors met in an emergency session to discuss how the Coronavirus could negatively impact the upcoming banquet if it were held in less than a month as originally planned. With all 800 seats already sold out, the directors questioned the appropriateness of carrying on with its event at a time that community leaders are urging restraint in holding events with large crowds. Of great concern to the directors was the obvious health risk for attendees and others, both at the event, as well as their need to travel to get there.

Trailblazers President Don Emde, stated, “I am very happy that the Trailblazers Board of Directors considered the health and safety of our many members who will be attending the banquet and will not take any unnecessary risks at this time of a potentially historic health crisis.” He added, “we want to assure all ticket holders and sponsors that everything is in place and will remain as-is until the banquet is held on its new date.”

The Trailblazers board also noted that not moving the date risked having a last-minute cancellation imposed on them by state or local authorities, a move that would have wiped the event for 2020. Emde said that only one suitable alternate date was available at the Carson Center which made their decision at this time even easier. He added, “as the Trailblazers President, it would be unthinkable to not have a banquet this year. We have too much history to let that happen.”
