[UPDATE 3] Chicago outdoors: Then no shows, Fish & Hook postponed, Canoecopia canceled, Greater Chicago Boat Show canceled, finally
The Fish & Hook Sports Show has been postponed to May 2; Canoecopia canceled; and, finally, so did the Greater Chicago Boat Show.
[UPDATE 3] And then, no shows.
All scheduled events for the weekend in the SHOW & GO are canceled or postponed.
I suspect many will be out trying for coho, which are moving up the Lake Michigan shoreline, trying to get the jump on inland crappie fishing or fishing opening day Sunday at LaSalle Lake. Of course, the weather may play a factor and so will concern about coronavirus.
[UPDATE 1] The Fish & Hook Sports Show has been postponed until May 2 at the VFW Post 5788 in Lockport. This is starting to look like the smart management, which had a quick backup plan.
[UPDATE 2] Canoecopia was scheduled to be at the Alliant Energy Center in Madison, Wis. But on Thursday, the decision was announced to cancel for 2020.
[UPDATE 3] The last holdout is now canceled. The Greater Chicago Boat Show, which had rather brazenly advertised that it would go as a show, finally had to cancel when authorities stepped in. It was to run through Sunday at the Schaumburg Convention Center.
The Birding America Symposium, originally scheduled for North Park University in Chicago on Saturday, has been postponed. No date has been set yet.
