I realize it is a week off, but the forecast for next Friday and Saturday don't look too promising.  Does the runway drain quick enough to allow runs between storms?

With sun it takes no time at all. I have heard the weather looks bad. The local weather is looking decent for this time of the year.

If the weather does not cooperate for May 5-7,  can the spring meet be re-scheduled, or do we have to wait until July.

I heard it is not too easy to re-schedule a meet with no advance notice.  Something about the Bird Life and their nesting areas???

Is there a chance the event will be canceled and when would they decide?  I am asking because I have a 1700 mile drive and am trying to weigh out these weather forecasts.

There have been 19 events at Loring.  There has never been a weathered out event.  We have lost some racing to weather but every event has happened.

I just got my email this morning saying the event had been cancelled due to the forecast for the weekend.  Thanks to everyone at the LTA for their efforts.  I was about to leave from Arkansas and I appreciate the early notice.

National Weather Service in Caribou Maine ran 5 different models for us.  All had substantial rain forecast through Sunday noon. No way to get a good day of racing in.

Kudos to Tim and Joe. They called the event at 6:25 AM on Tuesday and I was scheduled to depart at 6:30! I particualrly appreciate the opporrtunity to vote on the decision to "go or no-go".  :cheers:

With out sun we will never get it dry for Sunday. Water is already sitting on the edge of the runway and it has been almost 24 hours since rain. I do agree Friday looks runnable, but with a current predicted 17mph cross wind it would be speed limited anyways
