 GSSP 2021

July 7 – 11
Four Nights Under California Dark Skies

Dear Friends,

Covid-19 has disrupted almost every aspect of our lives and our first priority must be the safety of ourselves, our families, and our communities.  Given the lack of good predictive data about the pandemic’s effect over the next year, we have to remain cautious, yet we are choosing to announce dates for our 2021 event, conditional upon some important variables as well as expectation of a more modest gathering.

First, we are counting on a vaccine to be available.  If there is no widely available vaccine, we are unlikely to hold GSSP in 2021.

Second, we will most likely not hold the event if we are experiencing an exponential rate of infection come summer.

GSSP 2021 will restrict itself to a smaller attendee count than in the past.  We have not yet determined that number.  Proportionally, we will also have our attendees more spread out from one another to maintain social distancing.

Unless the world looks very different than today’s, we will not share community meals on site. Local establishments will likely still be open, and other than that, people will have to plan on more traditional camping.

Be patient as we work through these issues, and feel free to reach out and contact us with questions.

We expect registration to be open no earlier than March 1st.

Best regards,

The GSSP Organizing Committee
