Default Mississippi Afterburner 2021 cancelled

Looks like the Mississippi Afterburner is cancelled for 2021. Our state limits outside gatherings to 50. The school who owns the airport we use is a state entity so they have to follow state guidelines. I spoke to a governors spokesperson today and she said that the 50 person cap would be continued for the foreseeable future. With the helpers, cooks etc, we would realistically have to cap the pilots to 35-40 including wives and kids. Not feesable for us. Im not happy to deliver this news but hoping to see some of you on the road this year. Looking forward to a bigger, better MA next year.

Did you want to do some kind of donation to the school again this year?

Any chance the resent lifting of Covid restrictions in Mississippi will revive Afterburner 2021?
