I have secured us some space inside for Saturday. I think this will be the option. I checked my weather and right now it is 100% wet so small space warfare will be called for...

I wouldn't count the day out yet.

The weather may say 90 -100% chance of rain but that is factoring the whole day.
If you look at it by the hour the weather really doesn't get bad until after 2pm. So the mourning should be good.

Besides we all know the weatherman is never right. Very Happy

But if I didn't secure indoor space it will rain for sure! :-) Now that I have it won't. Nope, sorry, don't believe it. I think we will get rain at some point. But I'll cross my fingers...toes...legs...arms...eyes...

i got a msg from the other Hamilton gang, Doug, Steve, Matthew and Adam are all scheduled to come Saturday.

I'll be leaving work @ 730 AM (WOOOHOOO..!) and coming straight down.

What's the earliest we can set up? Im assuming they'll be open... real early.

We are planning to bring a table ,canopy,some new outcroppings ( simulated rocks),trees and of course a selection of tanks.Umbrella maybe ?

My ETA is about 9, car is already packed. Unless I'm delayed @ work I'll be there. 

Doing my anti-rain dance now.

Dean, do we have power available?

It was fun while it lasted. No damage done to my stuff after they all dried out. Hopefully no one else has any damage other than water spots on their tanks.

Well, that was interesting! LOL!

Thanks to all who came out and supported. That was a tough one! won't know till tomorrow if I had any damage cauz too damn cold to unload my truck today! But I know I got lots of stuff that is wet.

You can tell by Hach's video for the short time we were able to operate (till about 1) we had good crowds watching. Talked to lots of people. These after all are our people! :-) The rain seriously was a bummer though. We were just getting rolling when Mother Nature decided to dump on us.

 Oh, and by the way, the winner of the Bradley so generously donated by MichaelC is:

Raymond Tremblay of Mount Hope Ontario!

 Congratulations to him. I will be contacting him and shipping out his vehicle this week.

See everybody in June!

Dean

The " Bart Pan Tiger " was also a hit for many of the public tankers as it let them drive the unit around the battle field ( with supervision from a member ) . Only minor damage resulted and it seemed a lot of fun for them.
Speaking of damage, someone spun the turret off Norma's T34 . I haven't investigated it yet. Perhaps  next show the caution tape should be placed so little fingers can't touch.

I'm sorry to hear that Ed. RCEME shop is open if repairs are needed. Could it have been a collision on the field? I actually thought most people held their kids in check pretty well...
Yes, that was very generous of you to let the kids play with the Bart Pan Tiger. I can see it being a fixture at these public events! LOL!

The only reason I didn't deploy the DO NOT TOUCH signs was the wind. They would have ended up at the airport!

That was one hell of a soaking! My poor tables, buildings, tent will take a week to dry out. Good thing we didn't wait any longer before starting to pack up.

And before I forget, many thanks to Derek and "Scout" for helping me out for the weekend and giving me rides back and forth to the hotel.

Norma wanted  to tell everyone how much fun the day was.Despite the rain/ tornado. She enjoyed showing the new kids how the 'Bart tank"  worked  and  enticing the parents to come to the club/website  looking forward to next year.

It's the least we could do, thanks for organizing the event. 
Even thought we got rain on it, was still fun time.  I don't think the mourning could of gone any better. 

"Scout" is already asking to go back next year.  She also wanted me to thank Michael for helping me get the parts for her tank, she can't wait for the next Battleday.  
She also loved Ed's Bart tank. Very Happy
