     The GVFKA Board of Directors regrets that we must inform everyone that our 2020 Stone Tool Craftsman Show is cancelled. At present, gatherings in New York State remain limited to 10 individuals. Our directors felt that it would be unlikely for the region to meet phase 4 criteria, which would be necessary to hold the event, by the end of August. Please reserve August 27-29, 2021 and plan for a full weekend of primitive fun. We hope to see everyone soon...stay healthy!
