Here is the poll from the other thread... please take your time and select what makes you feel safer. There is an option for "Nothing makes me feel safer" at the bottom. This poll is "anonymous"... so others cannot see what you selected or who voted. The poll will be open for one week.

Results will be available after voting... or after the poll closes.

Don't forget to vote on this poll. Remember... "public perception" will play a part as the world starts to reopen. Polls like this can help people understand what others are thinking... which is good. And remember... this is an anonymous poll.

If you would like to add ideas... here is the original thread that this came from...

If you want to talk about what next season will look like...

If you just want to talk about the pandemic...

If you just want to talk about gymnastics... well... start a thread... gymnastics would be good right about now.
If you would like to discuss the actual poll... please go to the following thread...

All discussion here will be moved there or to the first link in this post.
Don't forget to vote this if you have not already. I can tell you that this thread is helping gymnastics.
