2.5+" in 3 1/2hrs. I guess I misunderstood the forecast, we thought it was 30% chance of rain, not 100% chance of rain with 30% chance of MONSOON.
It started raining at 2:30 and did not stop completely till 6:15! Anything less and the show would have gone on.
It is a shame, 114 players and things were just starting to roll . I apologize to those that didn't win anything, missed out on dry food, or in any way felt cheated by the outcome of the event. We had lots of fun events planned and tons of stuff to give away, but the situation was out of control. Damage to the course was one of the concerns, as was lightning, but the fact was we could not support play in that rain- scorecards were disintegrating, CTP markers turned to mush and Jeff and I had no dry place to stand and think, much less continue to run the event.
We may have a doubles event this fall, but if not we hope to see everyone back again next year, maybe we'll get some triple digit temps. and a tornado to spice things up!
