"You know, it's about the safety and consideration for all involved. It takes a lot of people involved from everything from law enforcement and of course all the health people and gee, all the many, many volunteers. So just for the safety and consideration for all involved we thought it was smart, and these events generate some large crowds, to postpone until next summer."

Richter adds there will still be a summer in the Iowa Great Lakes with plenty to see and do. He encourages everyone to enjoy the area and be safe at the same time.
