Based on the incredible progress the Biden administration has made in the first three months of his administration on vaccine production and distribution, we are confident we’ll all be able to make this summit the high-energy event we all envision and expect. It’s hard to tamp down the enthusiasm of this family! 

But as with any public health risk, especially one of COVID-19’s magnitude, we also want to be as clear as possible about what is necessary to ensure our collective safety, which of course includes South Benders and any member of the public we come into contact with during the journey.

As you know, the underlying guide for Barnstormers is Pete’s Rules Of The Road. We have and always will take them very seriously. As safety is our number one priority for any Barnstormers event, we have to highlight three ROTR in particular: Respect, Responsibility and Discipline

Because of our respect for the health and safety of others, we all agree to follow the rules. 

It’s all of our responsibility to follow the CDC Guidelines, which you can find here. The CDC will continue to update them as conditions evolve. 

As of today, the CDC says that it is safe for vaccinated individuals to be able to spend time indoors with each other without masks. To that end, we will be requiring all attendees of indoor Soulcraft Summit events to confirm that they have received their vaccination if they are eligible. The administration has said that as of April 19, 2021, anyone eligible who wants a COVID-19 vaccine will be able to get one. 

For events that take place in public, face masks will be required. We’re all looking forward to the day when the CDC says it’s okay to not wear one. But until that day, we must exercise the discipline to keep them on (and wear them the right way!). 

Because we are all predisposed to taking action, please sign up for the US Health and Human Services COVID-19 Community Corps to help as many people as possible get their vaccinations promptly. 

In Indiana, there is strong evidence that vaccinations are working to keep the public safe. So let’s make sure we help keep up the momentum!  

Stay tuned for updates on any changes to CDC guidelines and for details about the summit’s activities. We’re so excited to see everyone and start turning up the energy in preparation for 2022!
