COVID-19 Message to

Nord Stern Membership

Over the past several weeks, our Nord Stern Board of Directors has been monitoring the Covid-19 developments for our region. As the issue unfolded, we did not want to overreact with several weeks before our next scheduled event.  Given the current guidelines issued by the CDC and the State of Minnesota, we have elected to reschedule 3 events scheduled for early April. The Toy Box Open House, Midwest Clear Bra/Paintless Dent Removal tech session, the All Member Social @ Auto Edge, and the Caffeine and Octane at Medina AutoMotorPlex will all be rescheduled for a later date. Our April business meeting will be via teleconference.

There are several weeks yet before our First Fling weekend at BIR, however, under the current CDC and state guidelines, we are likely to cancel our Driver Training School April 24 due to the unavoidable proximity of the student and instructor in the car and the required classroom sessions.

We believe we can proceed with our First Fling DE weekend April 25-26 as scheduled with some modification unless further government action makes this not feasible. We will keep you posted of any changes.

If an event is canceled, we will provide as much prior notice as possible. Members with a paid registration will be given the choice of credit toward a future Nord Stern event or a refund. Members who choose to cancel their registration will have the same options.

The safety of our members is our top concern. No amount of Porsche fun is worth risking the health of our members, families, and communities. Stay tuned for further updates as the issue progresses.
