AUXLAM is canceled with a possible reschedule for September
Fellow Auxiliarist in accordance with 5th Coast Guard District Command the D5NR Spring DTRAIN has been canceled as a precaution against the outbreak of the novel CoronaVirus (COVID-19). Work is ongoing to reschedule DTRAIN for September. Please watch for additional email notices.
From Our D5NR Commodore
“Applying the GAR Model to the decision of whether to cancel this event made it absolutely clear that the safety of our members outweighs the potential gains we would have in continuing forward with this event. We simply do not have enough data to make any other decision but to cancel this DTRAIN and look to find opportunities to have another event later in the year with a target date of September. We have very actively sought out other venues and believe that we have a location well handled. Unfortunately, we will not be able to return to the Crowne Plaza in the fall. The cancellation is a major disappointment for us all—my wife and I even have the perfect costumes for Fun Nite.
The disappointment in the news of the reschedule will be felt at all levels—from our newest members to EXCOM and Senior Leadership. I want to thank all of our DTRAIN Staff and the Instructors for all of their hard work in putting together what would have have been one of our very best DTRAINs ever. We will be working diligently to keep those efforts and plans in place in September.
Please keep watching for additional information via email. This is a fluid situation and we are doing our best to keep you informed as final decisions are made.
It is important to acknowledge that the Management at Crowne Plaza, Reading has been very generous and most cooperative in working with us with this turn of events. If you ever have occasion to stay in the Reading area, we hope that you will consider staying at the Crowne Plaza Reading.
