    Is there going to be a Webcam Broadcast to watch ?

    That would work for me.

    Thank you very much for assisting in this issue. The drug store in Topeka has a sign out front that they still require masks even though the state mandate has expired. Only ones wearing a mask around here are virtue signalling, its so amusing seeing someone driving alone in their car with a mask on.

    Not responding to my voice mail is viewed as an attempt to withhold relevant facts that would sway my decision to attend or not attend is no different than telling a lie.

    I believe, though I maybe wrong that, he is obliquely referring one of the two major US political parties. One identifies with the colour blue ,the other with the colour red. I'll let you sort out which is which.

    Also my opinion..... if wearing a mask restricts breathing, attending events that require mild physical exertion with or without a mask is not a good idea, stay home.

    Not so simple. I was sitting for an hour or so in the waiting room of a hospital (masks required) while my Wife was undergoing a routine test. I also found it difficult to breathe, plus it fogs up my glasses as well. Fact is that the mask means that you inhale a fair amount of the CO2 that you exhaled and does indeed have a negative impact on at least some people. I have no breathing problems when unmasked, so it isn't a medical condition. Like the OP, I have no desire to go anyplace where I need to wear a mask, unless absolutely essential (medical facilities and only when super important, not for anything routine that can wait another year). YMMV
