SARVAC has been notified by Central Washington University and the Kittitas Valley Event Center that due to the COVID19 outbreak and the statewide ban on gatherings they are canceling all events through the end of June 2020.  Additionally, they are considering canceling events July through September as well.

As a result, we are canceling the 2020 WASARCON.  We are looking at what alternatives may exist for later in 2020.  We have been in contact with several other venues, but they not booking events at this point.  We wish this was not the case, but we need to deal with the current issues with the current information.  We need to try to make the best choices available to us.

I want to thank all of you for your patience and understanding.

Additionally, I want to thank the WASARCON 2020 Planning Team.  These people have done an outstanding job bringing the plans to this point.  They have spent hours on calls and in meetings planning for another outstanding conference.  They are John O’Rourke, Teena Chase, Rob Brewer, Randy Faye, Jim Nale, Chis Long, Dana Lerma, Joe Carlson, Al Wurth, Elena Reiss, Ellis Nale, Debbi Sherman, Matt Kozma, Mary Barker, and Chris Terpstra.  These people and many others have put hours and hours of time planning and developing the best conference.

Thank you to all SAR members for your contributions and support of WA SAR, the annual conference and the community at large.

We are looking to 2021 and we will begin planning for the future soon. Please watch your email for ongoing updates.
