For adventures through April 2020
The direction from professionals to lessen the impact of Coronavirus, is to practice social distancing. In a business that promotes being social, this cuts to the heart of what we do. We have a responsibility to our members, ourselves, and the community to do everything we can to abide by that guideline.
We have decided to move toward cancelling all PHYSICAL ABS adventures through THE END OF APRIL (This does not include our VIRTUAL ADVENTURES). We will continue to monitor the situation and extend these cancellations beyond that date as necessary. Women signed up for physical adventures through the end of April will be refunded* (see NOTE below). Please allow us a few days to complete this process.
*NOTE: A very few adventures have required pre-payments and we are in the process of connecting with these venues to learn options.
This decision does not come easily as ABS is no different than other small businesses. There are costs associated with our cancellations and refunds and without income, this could be detrimental to the future of the organization. However, first and foremost, we have a responsibility to our members. As disappointing as this is, we hope the precautions, at worst are exaggerated, and at best, contribute to flattening the curve of this virus and allowing us to get back to normal, sooner rather than later.
Thank you for your continued support. Let’s do our part to reduce the transmission of the virus so we can be back to our adventurous fun soon! Social distancing is the only option we have right now to protect ourselves and others. Please take care of yourselves! Email email@example.com with additional questions or concerns.
We will continually monitor the situation and extend the cancellations as necessary.
