Combating COVID-19: Cancellation of the April 2020 Trillium Advanced Driving School and Racing School

Dear members, Trillium’s COVID task force has been working hard to monitor the latest developments in the COVID-19 pandemic, and has recommended to the Board that we cancel the April event.

As you all know, the safety and health of all our members is our number one priority.

Today the Trillium Board voted unanimously to cancel the April Advanced Driving School and Racing School.

All those who registered and paid for the event will have the option to receive a full refund for the event or they can move their registration to another 2020 event.
