PostSubject: April 28th Meet at Fort Erie Cancelled due to Field Conditions   Fri Apr 20, 2018 6:58 pm

Sorry to say that conditions down here will not allow us to hold the April 28th Meet at Fort Erie (Black Creek)

This has been a wet spring and we had 2 1/2"of rain here last weekend.

It is not dry enough to cut any grass, mine, or the field and the ground is like a wet sponge.

We will re-group for May 19th

When the event is cancelled due to weather, it means no one will be attending, so there will not be anyone at the field on May 19th.

The tank field there is outdoors and grass covered and it needs to be prepared on the Thurs. or Fri. before the meet.  This means cutting the grass very short and removing the grass clippings so the tanks can operate properly.  We need to have a dry Friday and Saturday to make this happen and we are not getting a dry Saturday this weekend, according to the forecasts.

We have to watch the forecasts and make the call by the Thursday before the meet is a go, or not.

The cancellation notices go out as soon as we know it is a no-go, so out of town people know not to make the trip for nothing.
