LABOR DAY JAMBOREE

About

 

After careful consideration, The Sunshine District, along with The AIC and Harmony Foundation has decided that, despite our best efforts to make LDJ as safe as possible, we simply cannot. As we all know, the delta variant continues to ravage the country, and especially Florida. We had hoped that it would peak and then quickly drop. That has not happened. Florida continues to be “the epicenter” for this, and we acknowledge that despite our best efforts to make it happen, we cannot do so safely.
All Labor Day Jamboree events, including shows, the novice contest, and all official gatherings have been canceled.
We have heard that many people still plan to hang out and fellowship, and enjoy the Omni resort. We only ask that you do it safely, and please consider following the protocols and guidelines that had been put into place, and protect each other’s health.
SUN, AIC, and HFI all worked diligently in an attempt to make this happen, for many reasons, and the decision to cancel is for so many other reasons- more important reasons. But one of them was certainly the financial impact of cancellation. Flights, production deposits, safety equipment, etc. all are non-refundable and pose a strong negative financial impact for all three organizations. If you still intend to gather at the Omni, or are just feeling compassionate for the situation, please consider contributing your registration cost to help mitigate the losses on this event. Any gifts would be greatly appreciated.
 
Unless you notify us otherwise before September 10th, all registration purchases will be rolled over to LDJ 2022.
Since the event has been canceled, we will also honor refund requests. Please note – All refunds are returned to the original method of payment. If you bought yours from another individual and/or had a registration transferred from someone else, you’ll need to contact the person that sold it to you. To donate your registration cost or request a full refund, please fill out this form: https://forms.gle/cfwfAMb6EC2Lw4sM9
 
The LDJ block at the Omni ChampionsGate resort has a five-day cancellation policy, so if you are not attending, you MUST cancel your room by calling the hotel at (407) 390-6664, OR you may cancel online from the reservation confirmation link that was emailed to you by the Omni when you booked your room.
 
We all want to sing together again. So badly. We apologize that it took this long to cancel, but your well-being and safety must be placed above all else. Even with proof of vaccination and negative PCR tests, masks, and distancing, the activities outside of our control that take place at LDJ, although discouraged, would have introduced more risks that we were not willing to take.
We know that some will be upset by this decision, some will applaud it, and some will be angry that it took this long. But we would rather deal with those emotions and anger than the possible fallout from a super-spreader event. We hope that we can all can agree on that.
We will try again next year! Same location. Until then, friends, thank you for supporting LDJ and thank you in advance for your understanding. Please- if you haven’t, consider getting vaccinated so we can be together again!
Thank you – the LDJ Team
