So, A question to all,
there is a 100% chance of rain on Sunday and out of the 30 registered who will still come?
As a group we take a chance on tearing things up in the mud and then may not be able to return again?

Now that we have another site and will be able to hold more events in the future I would much rather do it in the dry.
If we have another event in two or three weeks from now will that be better for all.
Yes, it is difficult to predict mother nature, and it is more of a problem with RallyX versus Solo on pavement.

I would like to see our first event at this site in the dry, a sprinkel no problem thunderstorms "problem"

Your thoughts

At this point they are predicting pretty heavy rainfall overnight into Sunday morning. If it's thunder-storming we might have to cancel for lightning anyway. Are our cars likely to get stuck if it has rained thee quarters of an inch or more by the time we take the course?
