March 20 update: We are continuing to monitor the situation with the COVID-19 pandemic and will adhere to all recommendations given by the County of Santa Clara and its Health Service Agency. The CDC has recommended a cancellation or postponement of all mass gathering events greater than 50 people for the next 8 weeks, beginning March 15 until May 10. We realize this may be extended beyond that date, but we are hopeful that things will improve so that we are allowed to hold our event on May 31. Please check back for updates throughout April. Stay well and be safe.
REGISTRATION is still open!
