REDEEMING 2020 GOBA DEFERRALS
The cancellation of the 2020 GOBA at the onset of the COVID pandemic had a significant financial impact on our operation. Outdoor Pursuits had already expended significant resources for staffing, planning, and non-refundable contractual obligations associated with GOBA. We are grateful for our participants’ patience and flexibility during this truly unprecedented time.
Thanks to your cooperation with the deferral-redemption proccess in 2022, we have ensured the continuity of GOBA into the future. We will not manage the redemption of 2020 deferred registration in “blocks” as we did last year. All riders holding a deferral registration will be e-mailed a “coupon code” to utilize during the 2023 registration process. If a 2020 deferred rider chooses not to redeem their deferral in 2023, it will remain in our system for one more year.
*2023 – 5 meals included* – You’ll note that all regular, adult, 2023 GOBA registrations will increase by $55 to cover five (5) meals provided by GOBA in remote host communities. Your 2020 deferral will reduce the registration by $350 and require a payment of $55 to cover the costs of these five meals in 2023.
