Tentative - 2022 Santa Fe 500 Auto Tour
September 19-21, 2022
3 days / 3 nights with a Sunday afternoon kick off reception
Santa Fe and Surrounds
Dear 2021 Santa Fe 500 Participants,
As the organizers and hosts of the Santa Fe 500 Road Tour, we have decided that postponing this year’s (previously postponed) Santa Fe 500 is in the best interests of all of us. It was a very difficult and unfortunate decision but the writing is on the wall for pending COVID restrictions to come.
We feel that the 10 social gatherings associated with this year’s Road Tour puts our 92 participants at risk of COVID 19 / Delta. We are a large group traveling from many parts of the country.
In addition to the drives, we had scheduled three very social meals together every day, and we had also added a kick-off, private cocktail reception in the garden of the Thornes, long time participants of Santa Fe 500.
We believe these social gatherings could bring unintended consequences to one or more of our participants or their families / friends. Without the requirement of proof of vaccination, we cannot guarantee that we are all as protected as possible.
We are tentatively rebooked for next September 19, 20, and 21, 2022. We have collected swag, tour guides, and other goodies that we will safely store until next year’s 500 events.
Clearly each of you are entitled to a refund, or you may roll over your PP fee reserving next year’s tour. In 2020, more than 80% chose to keep their registration in place for the next event.
We are all living in difficult times. Our preference is to act with an over-abundance of safety, so we may all enjoy one another and the open roads in the future.
Bob, Cathy, and Paul
