iPhone won't let me scroll down in edit mode on my long post... :/

I plan on being there if they are still running it. Cold and snow don't bother me. I can update this thread for this coming Saturday's match if I hear that they cancel it. I just now saw that we may get a decent snowfall on Friday with severe low temps.

I emailed the guy who runs it to find out. Haven't heard back yet. IDPA was cancelled last Saturday due to rain.

If it were up to me I'd say fvckit, lets shoot. Rain doesn't bother me but with IDPA you have to try to get those stickers to stay on the cardboard. That's a PITA when they're wet. With steel, you sometimes have to spray them white again but at least you aren't dealing with wet cardboard/ stickers.

I was planning on steel @ MoBeach Saturday and IDPA @ CCF&G Sunday. If they both get rained out I'm gonna cry. [laugh]

Saturday is going to be fine. Rain isn't moving in until after 5-6pm. Hoping to make the Worcester IDPA match...

Sunday is going to be a complete washout however.
