Gents-

Unfortunately, the Pastor at the church that ownes the WP baseball field told
our groundskeeper contact that he has an event on Sunday, so we are out of luck
again, making the WP races 0 for 2....
The good news that Fermin is nearby and most of you will fare better
score-wise....
Can I get an "Amen" to that?
See you at the same time at Fermin.

Best Regards,
Target

That's too bad. I was looking forward to racing at WP, but you can't complain with Fermin...

There's one more WP race on the calendar...

Since the forecast is not stellar anyway why not use the back up date?

Because there IS no backup date for this race. Also, it's 4 days out from the race day, so lets just see how things pan out.....I will canex the race at an appropriate time (Saturday morning) if things look poor. No one values their time off more than me, I can assure you.
If it looks bad, I'll be down your way for a TD contest Sunday morning instead...

Sounds like Bruno is ready to be one of SCSR's new CD's for 2012, yay!

We could consider a move to Vincent or to Grass. Looks like SW coming on Sunday.

I will only consider that if a coastal venue looks bad. Since WP was a coastal venue, and Fermin is also, and right at the same basic locale, it's apples and apples.
I'll switch to inland only if the forecast looks poor for the coastal venue. I haven't seen that its going to be unflyable there yet. It may be light, but even light Fermin is easily flyable, and enjoyable, and less than 90*F heat.

If it looks bad, we will do something else, or canex the race.

Remember, slugs are slow creatures. We like to call them BULLETS. Much faster that way.
