Impact of the Rain on the Tuesday 10/26 Practices

Fighting Practice May Be Is Cancelled. Check back at Noon on 10/26

From the Provincial Knight Marshal

“Hi Friends.

It has been a long wet summer. Tonight there is prediction of a long wet night and day. I happen to be scheduled to be awake from now until fighter practice time, and if the rain comes down as predicted, I should be able to make an unequivocal decision by noon. Then I will sleep through practice time.”

UPDATE: “After the rain I walked through this morning, and the amount predicted over the next 8 hours, I am calling it.

Anyone who wished to engage in unauthorized armored mud sumo may do so at their own pleasure. I will be sleeping.”

Fencing Practice is Cancelled.

From the Provincial Fencing Captain

“Greetings All,

“I think it would be prudent to cancel fencing practice for tonight in Brooklyn. See you next week.

In Service,

Alec MacLachlan”

Dance Practice is Cancelled

From the Whyt Whey Seneschal

“The rain that’s started in the Province this evening is predicted to continue into Wednesday, with a 98% chance of rain during our regular weekly outdoor practice time on Tuesday.

Between the flash flood warnings and the gale-force wind advisory, it seems unlikely that things will improve enough to make for a pleasant evening in the park, so we’re cancelling tomorrow’s session.

See you all next week!”

Central Park Picnic — Sunday, August 1

Denizens of Whyt Whey and the surrounding lands, join us for a park picnic to celebrate the summer and spend time in good company after so long apart!

We will gather on Sunday, July 25, starting at 2:00 PM — unless the weather is inclement, in which case we will announce a postponement to the following Sunday, August 1.

[UPDATE, July 25: the weather forecast for this afternoon has been downgraded to “scattered thunderstorms,” so it looks like we need to push our picnic back to the rain date, next Sunday, August 1. The long-range forecast suggests next Sunday will be dry and pleasant — I look forward to seeing you all then!]

[UPDATE, August 1: Today’s weather is looking pleasant — comfortable temperatures and no rain until late in the day — so we’re moving ahead with our picnic plans for this afternoon. Pack your lunch and join us at 2:00 on the Great Hill!]
