For more than a year, I was unwavering about the need to not attend model horse shows during a pandemic. I stand by that. There is absolutely no reason to risk your life and the lives of others for a plastic pony party.
That said, things are different now. We have a really good vaccine that is readily available to all Americans twelve years and older. There's no reason we can't gather safely.
Still, it's not a free for all. While vaccines are extremely effective at preventing severe disease and death, they don't prevent all disease. Vaccinated people can catch and transmit Covid-19, sometimes unknowingly. This is why masks are necessary. This is why I personally would not attend a show where masks were optional.
Fortunately, that wasn't the case at Anna Miller's Ace of Spades Live. Everyone was was required to wear a mask, and everyone did. This included the show holder,
and the entrants.

The only one who was excluded was Cy, and he's a dog, so that's okay.
Thank you, Anna, for holding a safe and fun show. I really appreciate your commitment to our community's health and well being.
