    Thanks!
    I asked the same question earlier in this thread....I think I'm just going to plan to show up for the AM session. Doesn't seem that many people are registered so I can't see why we couldn't switch when we get there.

    Probably should just wait till tomorrow afternoon to decide. If the hurricane arrives as forcast on Saturday afternoon I would think the entire event would be cancelled. I can't see any sense in setting up for saturday morning and then trying to clean up in 100 mph winds on saturday afternoon. Plus just think how much fun it will be towing the club trailer home in that.

    the most recent forecast I've seen looks like this area won't be getting much of anything (even rain) until saturday night, and when it does it will be 30-40mph winds.....

    amazing....total forecase on weather.com has changed in a 2-hour span. These local weather guys......just taking wild guesses it seems.

    meh, I'll run in rain and wind. It'll save me from the hassle of putting the shaved tires on the car

    Joe brings up a valid point....

    As someone who has pulled an enclosed trailer....even 40mph crosswinds will cause a need for a change of pants more than once. Also, the cones will probably start to float a bit once the heavy rains starts.

    My fingers are crossed that it will stay dry until the evening...

    OK Peeps,

    When are we going to get a "Go" / "No Go" for launch? I think we are all ready to run...

    I think we are going to be fine. The storm is going to blow in later in the evening.

    Making a decision (Yes or No) earlier would be better than later. Please post as soon as possible

    Thanks in advance to all the club members who work hard to produce these events.

    We are working on a decision now. The forcast is constantly changing which is complicating things. We will post information here as soon as possible.

    Thanks for your understanding!!

    latest weather channel forecast for Waldorf Saturday:

    Showers in the morning, becoming a steady rain in the afternoon. Windy. Humid. High near 80F. Winds ENE at 15 to 25 mph. Chance of rain 90%. Rainfall near a half an inch.

    Sounds like we'll be fine. Just don't bring your slicks or shaved tires, lol. I think the heavy winds aren't expected until the evening, if at all in this area.
