|COVID-19 SOCIAL DISTANCING GUIDELINES – MUST READThe WWA is implementing social distancing guidelines effective immediately at all WWA sanctioned events in an effort to minimize the spread of COVID-19 in our communities.

If anyone has a temperature reading greater than 100.4* F they will not be able to remain on the event site. We encourage all participants to take their temperature before arriving at the event.
