Yes, the forecast looks a bit dismal.

Still going tonight to get checked out on the lawn tractor to get using it for the maintenance cuts.

We'll make a call on the weather based on the forecast on Thursdays, we will think happy thoughts about the weather for the next couple days.

Sorry, I see no option but to cancel the June 23rd meet due to the weather forecast.

The site I use that has a good accuracy record has the following chances of precipitation;

Friday Night 70%

Saturday 90%

Sunday 70%

We are good to go for the meet on Sat., Aug 11, 2018, 09:30 start.

Tonight (Thurs.), dougjobe and I got the field ready, it is in very good shape with the grass short as it can be cut and the grass clippings have been swept clear.

Saturday forecast is very good.


Please remember these items;


Dues, we ask people who want to participate, and have not paid for 2018, to be prepared to fill out a membership form, which we will have available there, for the Black Creek Community Association (our host) and pay the $25.00 annual fee (the entire fee goes to the Black Creek Community Association, we do not keep any of the money)

Foodthis the change, we have decided to ask everyone to bring the type and quantity of food that the wish to have for themselves to the meet.  (there are no take out food facilities really close to the field)  If your food requires cooking, the propane BBQ is available for us to use.  If you wish to bring something to share, that is fine, but not expected. 


Hope to see some old friends, and some new ones, too  Very Happy

Reluctantly, I am cancelling the Oct. 20th meet.

Most weather sources the I monitor are still calling for a 60% chance of rain, and I do not want to take a chance on that.

I waited until today to call it as a balance between waiting unit we get reliable forecasts, but giving as much warning as I can for cancellation.
