Coronavirus Update

As of May 20, 2020, the ban on gatherings over 10 people remains in effect in the state of Ohio.  Even if it were to be lifted by the end of May, it would not be responsible to bring many thousands of mature and potentially at-risk people together from around the country and region.  We had no choice but to cancel the May 30-31, 2020 meeting The Display Show and Banquet has been rescheduled for May 8-9, 2021.

Gun collectors have been particularly effected by the ban on public gatherings and subsequent cancellation of gun shows across the country.  Many of us are going through "gun show withdrawal" and some of our members are facing a serious loss of income due to the ban. We are hoping to be able to move forward with the July 18-19, 2020 meeting.    However, it is unknown at this time if the ban on large gatherings will be lifted in July, and if we can make realistic changes for the protection of the health and safety of members and their guests.  We are monitoring the situation closely and a link to Ohio's official coronavirus website can be found by clicking here.  

Please read all correspondence from OGCA and check back on this webpage for news and announcements.  Likewise, if you have not yet done so, please email us at ogca@ogca.com with your email address, name and member number (or address) so that we can add you to our email list for future, quick correspondence. Your email address is never shared. In addition, please “like” us on Facebook to get news and updates at https://www.facebook.com/theogca

We pray for the stop of the spread of the virus and quick recovery of those afflicted.   May you and your family be healthy and safe.
