As you may already know, the National Summer Steamup, 8-12 July in Sacramento, is cancelled due to the COVID-19 situation.  Since our steamers are in the most vulnerable category, and there appears to be no end in sight, the steamup planning team felt this was the best thing to do for health and safety.  Our focus is now on NSS21 in our new home in Lodi California.  Please visit our website at www.steam-events.org for more details.
