Third time is the charm?

I booked a small cabin at Outdoor Adventure and Lakeside Lodging in Maine | New England Outdoor Center for the weekend of October 9-11 2021, yes, 2021 and will schedule the rally for that Sunday October 10 2021.
Why not 2020? NEOC is booked through 2020 already and can only plan to open pending virus numbers.

Make your reservations now for a leaf peeping weekend next year before everything is booked. We'll try for Sunday October 9 2022, unless people prefer Saturday or the actual holiday Monday.

This weekend should be spectacular.
