ELK POINT – While the 10th Annual Second Chance Trail Ride will go ahead on Saturday, May 8 as planned, the Tunes & Tailgates fundraiser concert that was to follow that evening has been rescheduled.

Last week's press release from Morcomm PR & Events states that, “Due to the latest provincial travel restrictions and COVID concerns, the Tunes & Tailgates Drive-in Concert has been rescheduled to July 10 in Elk Point.”

Morcomm’s Sheila Moore says that while drive-in events have been permitted in Alberta throughout the pandemic “and are considered save because it is something people can enjoy together with plenty of physical distance,” the latest pandemic concerns and travel restrictions regarding travel out of BC, where the performers reside, caused the date change decision.

“While the decision comes at a time of collective uncertainty, 2nd Chance Trail Ride Society and Mussell Records take the safety of our guests, performers, volunteers and community very seriously,” Moore says. Rescheduling the event will allow the performers to safely travel out of province, “and hopefully in the coming weeks, we will see restrictions lift to provide the experience that our guests and partners deserve in a safe environment.”

Tickets already purchased will automatically be applied to the rescheduled event, from which all proceeds will go to support the 2nd Chance Trail Ride Society and their mission to raise awareness of the need for transplant organs and tissue and to continue supporting transplant patients through their journey.
