As COVID-19 continues to make gatherings of people non-existent many companies have been forced to cancel or modify event dates. It appears that GORUCK Team Assessment has been one of the latest victims in this. The event was previously scheduled to take placed at the end of June, 2020 and now will be held on September 17th, 2020.
The good news is that pretty much every airline is giving either a refund or credit on flights changed or cancelled during this time. Not all have reached the June time frame yet but, based on how everything is going, I’m guessing they will soon. I’ve had to cancel two trips so far and the process has been smooth.
It’s also worth noting that the new date conflicts with the Pittsburgh Heavy, 2020 Snowdrop event, and the Ohio Star Course. GORUCK puts on so many events that it’s probably difficult to find a date that doesn’t overlap with anything else but if you’re signed up for Team Assessment and one of those other ones you’ll probably want to hit up GORUCK.
Who knows… maybe with everyone stuck home we’ll see more people signing up for Team Assessment? Might as well use some of that extra time at home to train for something bigger and, with Team Assessment now five months away, it’s probably the perfect time to start for this event.
