The Pipeline Fire in Flagstaff has resulted in closures until further notice by the Coconino National Forest; that includes the Arizona Nordic Village, which is where we host Summer HAHWG. At this time, the Nordic Center is telling customers with events through mid-July to seek an alternate location. Our event is July 8-10. So, we are looking into options:
1. Find an alternate location - that still allows a two-day, outdoor, overnight event, preferable in the cool air and pine trees, sites being considered:
o The Arboretum - called, they are booked
o Raymond Ranch
o NAU Centennial Forest facility - new, researching
o Other ideas - email, firstname.lastname@example.org
2. Push out our meeting date, to allow for monsoons to do their work; move past 4th of July fire restrictions, and meet at Nordic either July 22-24, or July 29-31? I need to check on site availability and caterer, but this could be the best option.
