Smile HU Latvia 1st meeting postponed

For the first time in the Baltics, Horizons Unlimited Latvia will take place in one of the most beautiful places in Latvia - the sports recreation centre "Smeceres sils", which is located near the Trans Euro Trail (TET). TET Latvia linesman Martinš Sils is our host for this event. There is an excellent track and many activities to enjoy.

You can stay over overnight in one of the log cabins or in the beautiful campground. Enjoy the beautiful, natural landscapes and hundreds-of-years-old forests, expansive seashores, and evergreen meadows. You can ride the countless trails that locals consider to be a huge asset and do everything to protect the environment from harm.

As we tend to do on adventures, we have encountered unanticipated detours and uncertainties this year. Some re-routing is needed in order to find a new path forward. We understand that you may be wondering whether the event is going ahead as planned, and how that may affect your own travel decisions.

We have been communicating with our local organisers and event venues, and monitoring regional and global developments, including travel bans and local restrictions on events. We hope that the corona-virus situation is under control before the event, but it looks like it won't be.
We are also aware that the HU demographic skews a wee bit older, and our deepest wish is that your well-being remains intact. We also are very aware that the small communities our events are held in have very limited medical resources, and we don't want to bring the virus to them with a large group of people from all over the world. Thus we have made the difficult decision to postpone.

We are postponing the event - we are working on a NEW date. We will be monitoring the situation in the area as well as the usual news sources, and will absolutely err on the side of caution. We will notify you of the new date as soon as we can be certain of it.

We appreciate that some of you will have made travel arrangements and incurred other costs, and we hope that you can change those plans.
If you want to keep your registration (including room bookings) to the new date, we will carry it forward for you. No need to do anything. Carrying your registration forward will help us out a LOT. Thanks!
If you need a refund, we will provide it as soon as possible, but please be patient. For refunds, PLEASE REPLY to your original Registration Confirmation email to make it easier for us to find, or if you can't do that, please email a request to: events-c {a} horizonsunlimited.com

Thanks for your understanding in this difficult time. Positive outcomes grow from staying true to what makes the global HU community special: inspiration, information, and connection through shared experiences, tolerance, and mutual kindness. Please continue to listen to and follow the advice of your local and national health authorities. Stay healthy so that we can all catch up later.

Remember that worrying does lower your immune system, so don't binge on news. (yes we struggle with that one too!) And most importantly - take care of yourself and your loved ones!

Virtual hugs from Martins and Paula, Grant and Susan, and all the HU family
Grant Johnson

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events all over the world with the help of volunteers; we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, or ask questions on the HUBB. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
