   By the way - as I mentioned, I work for a major railroad in the USA.  How has the European rail transport system, particularly DB, been affected by the current rules?

They finally managed to arrive in time now.
But yeah, they did cut down on lots of the connections. Traveling is only wanted to go to work, shopping or other urgent reasons. It's not completze forbidden, but they really appeal to you.

   The wide range of response to the COVID-19 virus is frustrating.  Europe seems to take it more seriously than most of the USA.  While here it seems to be decimating the large cities of New York, Philadelphia, Detroit and Chicago, the populace at large seems to regard it as a terrible inconvenience, rather than a death-dealing plague.  Many people here are off-work due to their places of work being closed, but they are not necessarily staying IN their homes, which was the point of the thing.

   Me?  I HAVE to work - Railroads AND Telecommunications have been deemed fields essential to the operation of civil society through the emergency, and I have a letter from the Federal Government attesting to that and asking for police to allow me through lines of closure when on railroad business, in my railroad vehicle.  But so far, here in California at least, there is no Public Safety or Law Enforcement strategy aimed at enforcing Do-NOT-TRAVEL requests.

   So far - Biggest Little Fur Con (BLFC) in Reno has been put off until at least Fall; and BABSCon, the MLP:FiM convention for San Francisco, has been cancelled for this year, resulting in automatic membership transfers to be issued for next year (BABSCon 2021).  The Hyatt Hotel cancelled my reservation, without any penalty.

   I'm still hoping for Anthrocon to take place, I think it will; the City of Pittsburgh and the VisitPittsburgh hospitality service have been doing their best to keep AC up-to-date and in the loop, but who knows how the situation and conditions turn in the next two weeks.

   I am sure that EF will do the best they can, when they finally get a clear picture from city/state authorities on what the future holds; No doubt if things come to EF just being unable to take place at the Estrel on our planned dates, they will come up with a reasonable compromise - bearing in mind that not just EF, not just the Estrel, but the whole of the Hospitality and Convention Industries have suffered major business upsets over the situation.  In short - EF (and by extension, WE) are not alone.

   By the way - as I mentioned, I work for a major railroad in the USA.  How has the European rail transport system, particularly DB, been affected by the current rules?

I do have a question about this. I just got an email from the airline I was going to take a flight to Berlin saying my flight is canceled due to government advisories. can I still get a refund by any chance or rollover to next year hopefully along with the boat cruise that was on the night before hand.

In case anyone has missed our tweet:

The federal government of Germany has advised its states today (2020-04-15) to extend the ban on large events until August 31st. This has not been put into law by the state of Berlin yet. We are in close contact with all our business partners and will make an announcement as soon as we have confirmation on the situation.

On the off chance EF goes ahead this year, would anyone like to attend a presentation on 3D modelling and animation?

Hello everyone,

The worldwide COVID-19 pandemic is seriously threatening our chosen charity for this year, the Cheetah Preservation Foundation (https://www.cango.co.za/cheetahpreservationfoundation/). With their country in lockdown, the CPF is in dire need of funds, their income slashed by the crisis. They are desperate for help. All our help.

To this end, we have started a GoFundMe campaign (this is now closed) to help raise money to meet our charity’s immediate needs before they are forced to make difficult and unpleasant choices. We chose GoFundMe because it is quick, easy and simple to use by virtually everyone in the world. Please, please share this link with your friends and family so that we can get urgently needed help to some of the innocent victims of this crisis who can’t help themselves.

We know that times are tough for all of us right now, but we ask that you give whatever you can spare to help our charity through this crisis. Every donation will make a difference. You don’t even have to give cash right now. Got a talent for art? Can you make a must-have fursuit? We’ll accept the proceeds from sales of your incredible and varied talents if you are willing to donate your time and effort to help us out. We’ll also give shoutouts for folks that go out of their way to be creative in their giving. ;)

If you have any questions, or if you would like to help out with this campaign, please feel free to reach out to me or email charity@eurofurence.org. If you aren’t sure if this is fake or not, ask Cheetah. It’s real. ^)^

Thanks for being what make this fandom great,
~Bariki
