The 2020 SWANA FL Road-E-O has been tentatively rescheduled to July 10-11, 2020.

After careful deliberation and consideration of the best information available to us at this time, given the unfolding concerns regarding COVID-19, SWANA FL has concluded, with regret, that we cannot proceed with the chapter Road-E-O as planned in April. This decision was not made lightly. We made this decision with the health and physical safety of our contestants, volunteers, spectators and community members foremost in our minds. Thanks for your patience and understanding. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to email or call. We wish you and yours good health and better days ahead.

Do I need to cancel my hotel reservations? No. The hotel  has moved the entire room block to the new dates. Please refer to your original confirmation number if you need to make any changes. The room rate has been reduced to $119 for the new July dates.

Will you be issuing refunds? Please let us know if you have any conflicts with the new dates. We will work with you on refunds if needed.
