Idaho potato group cancels Sun Valley convention

The Idaho Grower Shipper Association has cancelled its 92nd annual convention due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Chris Koger reports for The Packer.

The event was scheduled for Sept. 2-4 in Sun Valley, Idaho. It’s just the second time the annual potato convention has been cancelled; the 1945 convention was cancelled because of “war conditions,” according to an Aug. 3 statement from the Idaho Grower Shippers Association’s executive committee.

Some attendees still plan to visit the Sun Valley Resort, where the event is scheduled every year, according to the statement. The resort will honor the association’s discounted room rates for Aug. 31-Sept. 5.
