The governor there recently extended the re-opening of society in the land of Lincoln from the end of April to the end of May. We are guardedly optimistic that this class will be a “go.” The venue in Kankakee allows full social distancing on a capacious outdoor range and a huge classroom with big screen and voice amplification both indoors and out.
