Mr. V was a staple at the Odeum for many many years. You may have seen him greeting you at the entrance of the Arts & Crafts Festival...or maybe checking your ID as you headed up to the Sports Lounge...always there with a smile on his face & a welcoming soul. A true member of the Odeum family. You will be missed Mr. V!

Odeum Expo Center April 2020 Newsletter Is Just Not the Same - https://mailchi.mp/025af1b68c36/odeum-expo-center-april-2020-newsletter-is-just-not-the-same

Chicago Marine Aquarium Society

We'll let you know when the new date is selected & announced...

Hello CMAS and Vendors,

Due to the recent outbreak of COVID-19, CMAS is sad to inform you that the CMAS Coral Frag swap on April 18th, 2020, will be postponed. The Odeum Expo Center has generously allowed CMAS to reschedule the swap to another date. We currently do not know what the new date will be, but once the pandemic has subsided we will work with the Odeum to reschedule the swap.

All vendors who purchased a spot will be refunded. All those who purchased a pre-sale admission ticket will be refunded as well.
Vendors who purchased a booth spot will be given priority at re-selecting the booth you originally signed up for once the new date is set.

Please allow a few days for the refund to be processed.

CMAS will re-schedule to a future date while following the Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s guidelines for event planners as well as recommendations made by the state of Illinois.

We hope everyone stays healthy. Thank you for your understanding and your patience.

The Chicago Marine Aquarium Society

[03/17/20]   Dear Vendors, Attendees and longtime Amigo Guitar Shows supporters:

Because of the continued concerns over the COVID-19 national health crisis, we have decided to cancel the Amigo Nashville Guitar Show 2020 that was advertised for March 28-29. The show has grown to become one of the largest shows east of the Mississippi. We have also canceled the Amigo Chicago show scheduled for mid-May.

On a bright note, the Amigos have negotiated a cool new deal for you guys and gals. Remember the convention center in Arlington, Texas? Well, the main exhibit hall, less the carpeted room, which will accommodate nearly 300 booths, will be the location of the Amigo Guitarlington Reunion Show, on June 20-21, 2020. The fabulous Sheraton Arlington Hotel will provide accommodation. This show not only replaces Nashville and Chicago, but fills a void for several east coast and mid-south show cancellations.

Words of wisdom from Dave:
The times they are A-changin'.... Dylan

It is our hope that this note finds you and your circle healthy. We are reminded in times like this, what is really important. It was music and love for guitars that brought us all together. We are presently in uncharted waters, with the hope that normalcy will return soon.

Of course, for those who have already paid for Nashville and Chicago, all options are on the table, including refunds... your call.

So very sorry for the set of circumstances that caused this chain of events,

The Amigos
