Breaking News from Minot Magic Squares
We are sorry to inform you of our decision to cancel the 2021 North Dakota State Square Dance Festival (April 23rd and 24th, 2021) We feel it is time to refund your registration money. If you have received a ribbon for the 2021 festival (Minot), a refund is on the way shortly.
INSURANCE and COVID-19
Insurance through the USDA is for organization liability and medical benefits associated with an accident at any regularly scheduled and sponsored activity. USDA insurance has never covered any type of virus. Organizations are insured if the State is opened up for public gatherings and allowing groups to gather and the organization is following Centers of Disease Control and Prevention and State guidelines. If the State says no public gatherings and your organization meets, then the law has been broken and there is no insurance coverage.
ND doesn't say "no social gatherings" but they do say "social distancing". Therefore, all square dancing in Fargo has been cancelled for the immediate future.
The calendar at www.fmsquaredancers.org is always up to date.
If you are wanting to go to a dance, please contact the local folks to make sure the dance will happen.
