April 23, 2019 Update:

We have updated information that impacts Event 8000, UTA Light Rail Fun Ride.

The Utah Transit Authority has announced it will start a major light rail track reconstruction project before our convention, continuing into June. Event 8000, the Light Rail Tour will be impacted by this construction. The tour will require a three block walk, or a bus ride, around the construction area as part of the tour. Also, restroom facilities will be available at the end of the lines only after a 1-2 block walk. Anyone who is mobility-impaired and signed up for the light rail tour is encouraged to consider these conditions before going on the tour. If anyone registered for the event decides that he/she no longer wants to participate in the light rail tour, please advise the Convention Chairman, so that another person can be accommodated. The email address is: JHGoodman2001 - at - Yahoo - dot - com.
