I think we all know that Bluegrass will not happen in June. For myself, SXSW, Old Settlers and New Orleans Jazz Festival have all been cancel. This virus will still be with us in June and beyond. The town of Telluride will not want 12,000 people coming from all over the country and world to their small town. Maybe they will postponed until the Fall. If not, see you in 2021.

and Hartford Fest just rescheduled. Boy oh boy, times are tough.

I just had a FANTASTIC experience that I wanted to pass along.

Every year I head to Spring Training baseball with several friends.  I do all the arrangements, from game tickets to car rentals.  When major League Baseball cancelled the remaining games, I knew there would be no problem with tickets refunds, nor car rentals, nor Southwest Airlines.  But I was VERY concerned about the hotel rooms. 

I had booked about 20 room/nights on Priceline, but using the lower priced rooms that "CANNOT BE CANCELLED".  Oh crap.  Yep, I DID buy those rooms knowing that I could not cancel.  I was sure I was about to lose a few thousand dollars. 

I knew that a call to Priceline would be worthless.  So I nearly fell over when they refunded my money 100%.  They asked me for my reason to cancel, I said the magic word:  Coronavirus.  IMMEDIATELY they were in the mood to refund!

If a large company like Priceline is willing to refund thousands of dollars to someone who contracted with them for non-refundable rooms, I think there surely won't be any problem win tickets, condos and trasportation refunds for Festivarians.

I'm hoping that we will get the "GO" on this year's TBF, but more importantly, I'm hoping that all of you stay safe!!!
