I'll cast the final decision in the coming days, NLT Wednesday. That's not to say that you couldn't go there, naturally. But it seems at least likely that eSim Games will shift the annual Steel Beasts Conference to October, which was the professional background for me to visit Vienna in the first place. Not that there aren't a lot of other good, tasty reasons to go there.

You're a brave man, Mr. Jones...
I've actually already promised to take her to Curacao for our Anniversary and even I am not dumb enough to change that.

I am inclined to agree with you. Hopefully by October things will have settled down a bit.
I fear the Toronto I&I will have to be postponed, also.
I suspect that you are correct, but there's no reason to decide now.

So, we've shifted our conference to October, at which point the HGM should be open again in any case. What's more, on Monday 26 (Austrian National Holiday) the ÖBH (Army) will have a bit of a public show day in, as I understood it, Zwölfaxing, the barracks of the Austrian Armor School. It's supposed to be a historical show/display and the details are usually made public only at relatively short notice (probably reflecting a, umm, dynamic planning process).
I'll post news about this event here in this thread as I receive them.
There is a non-zero possibiity that parts of eSim Games might still congregate in Vienna for an internal meeting, and if some people banked on this somewhat special visit to the HGM prior to its official reopening and they think they can't make it in October, well, let me know this week if I should pursue the private tour on Sat, Apr 25. If the stars align in just the right pattern and you blow your bone flutes of madness R'lyeh shall rise again and we'll make this happen after all, Corona be damned.

I think we also now know why the chaps are address now.

Well, the possibility for that dropped to zero, if that wasn't obvious already.

First time in years I have spring free and SHTF. Oh well, next time...

The fat lady hasn't started singing on Ontario in June but I think I hear her warming up in the wings.

Yup, they are closed till apr 5th and then will be announcing next steps. Of course airfare looks cheap enough now that you could take a gamble on an early booking if you wanted to.

Consider this: Will you be able to enter the country? And if so, will they let you back into the EU afterwards?
