‘Accommodations’ for the disabled should become norms | Commentary

Take a moment and read this article from the Orlando Sentinel.

As the Americans with Disabilities Act turns 30, a guest columnist with cerebral palsy reflects that some of the steps put in place during the coronavirus epidemic -- such as remote work, remote school and telehealth -- should remain for the benefit of the disabled.

National Amputee Golf Association - NAGA

Dear Amputee Golfers,

It is with great regret that the NAGA has decided to cancel the 72nd National Amputee & Disabled Golf Championship & 31st Senior Amputee Golf Championship scheduled for September 21st – 25th in Orlando, FL. The Coronavirus pandemic is just to problematic and we think it is prudent to not to put our amputee golfers in harm’s way. With all the COVID-19 protocols in place, it would be a completely different Championship with everyone having to be cautious with regard to social distancing, hand washing and wearing masks. The National Championship is as much a wonderful annual reunion of friends and family as it is a golf competition.

Please know that for those of you that have sent in your Entry Fee checks that we will shred them those checks. For those who have paid via a Credit Card, we will reimburse you or have you received a credit on your statement. If you have any questions, please contact me to discuss.

We hope that everyone understands our decision and that you will make plans to come to the National Championships next year in Las Vegas at Stallion Mountain Golf Course on October 25th, 26th, 27th, 28th & 29th 2021.

Best Wishes & Many Thanks! Be Well!

The Players – The Billy

For those that don’t know, “The Billy” came about from the Phoenix Cup 2018 in Florida when a team of golfers with disabilities from USA & Europe played at Rotonda Golf Club, Florida. Mr. Billy Cairns was a team member of the travelling European team and unfortunately passed away the day after arriving in Florida. This made the competition very emotional and ensured that the camaraderie between the two teams was unprecedented.

Due to COVID-19, the organizing committee in conjunction with Celtic Manor Resort in Wales have deferred the event by 12 months.

Therefore the first ‘Cairns Cup’ event will be at Celtic Manor in September 2021, lovingly referred to as ‘The Billy’!

Check out the players from both teams including member of the National Alliance Advisory Board, Patti Valero.
