      Really disappointed to learn this. Did the organizers say why? Hoping Bob and family are OK.

      I did have a discussion with the organizer. Don't think it's for us to discuss at length in public but not hard to guess that a combination of enrollment numbers and the amount of work involved. As someone that ran a large mandolin festival for 14 years that was a labor of love, we understand.
