Well, here we are again!
We have to cancel.
I am very bummed but the conditions at the park and the anticipated rains make it foolish to proceed.
Here is a severe example of what we are dealing with, The other stage has it's issues also.
So this effect is translated to the trails and the remainder of the field also. Any further rain, although it may be tolerable in terms of getting rained on, would be disastrous to the enjoyment of all involved. So we will plan another attempt after we consider our options. Below are further thoughts that I emailed out to our members, participants, and interested parties.
I will be working to produce this at an indoor venue. The season is over at the park. Although we might be able to find another date, I am not available for the next few weeks and by then it will be too cold. So, I will keep you informed about what I am able to come up with for a venue and a likely time. I am thinking that if we can combine an event with a preparatory gathering for "Pirates... " that might be the best approach. I cannot see anything happening until January or February, what with the holidays, but if the venue I have in mind fits in sooner then I will take a poll and see who might like to do something.
We have a program, we did publicity work, we have a group ready and willing to do something; maybe we should insert that program into the "Cabaret" time slot and/or enhance the program somewhat. Either the Cabaret time-slot or sometime just before Thanksgiving might be worth considering. After Thanksgiving is just too busy for everyone.
I can continue to look into Pendelton Hall and if you have another venue, then we can transpose this effort there, whatever seems to work.
Sorry everybody, the weather has not been cooperative. Let me know what you all think.
