Special Forces Association
Fellow SFA members, as all should be aware by now, the 2020 SFA International Convention has been cancelled. However, we have put together a “virtual convention” which will provide some of the features that the convention would have provided. The Convention is free, there are no registration fees, travelling, or hotel accommodations required. So try it out and see what works for you and let us know how we can improve it. Some of the things we learn here may be useful for remote participation in future physical Conventions.
The website can be found at https://www.specialforcesbooks.com/SFA2020/foldersBase.php or at https://www.tinyURL/SF-2020. It is up and running now. Don’t let “technophobia” deter you. If you can use the internet, you’re golden. You don’t need to sign up to use any special programs (like Zoom) and you can even use your telephone for the meetings if you are camera shy. It’s all free.
Steve Sherman, the mastermind behind this effort, will post an invitation to a Zoom Test meeting on the website every day leading to the convention and you can learn or practice your skills and see how easy it will be. We strongly recommend getting into the virtual convention website sometime in the next 7 days, go to the Help page to test things out and get acquainted. On August 12 the meetings and hospitality rooms will be operating as per the schedules on the website.
If you want to be that host or be a vendor or would like to host a hospitality room, contact Steve Sherman at 281-879-5688 directly or through the website.
We hope to see each and every one of you at the Virtual Convention. Come and enjoy the camaraderie of the SFA in Sunny Florida from the comfort of your favorite computer chair.”
Finally, remember that some of us are still travelling and straying at the Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort August 12-15 for a non SFA sponsored SF Rendezvous. We will have a physical hospitality suite there, sponsored by Chapters 7 and 1-18. The resort has agreed to honor the prices they had set aside for the convention even though the convention is now cancelled. Anyone interested in taking advantage of this should contact the resort immediately. Any one who kept their reservations should be good to go.
