That is correct, the original Warlord site was near Grapevine, northwest of
Dallas. Warlord did, indeed, get too big for that site. We used to get rain
and sometimes heavy storms there, but I don't think there was a flooding
problem such as happens at the Canton site.

The last time I went to Warlord was two or three years ago. We stayed in a
motel, but still had weather-problems: 50 mph winds that trashed all but
two or three of the pavilions around the list field. I was lucky; I saw the
storm coming and had most of our stuff packed in the car before it hit, but
the wind still bent several of the poles on our pavilion (note that these
are 1.25" steel pipes on one of the 10x20 foot "garage" pavilions.)

We've decided that the easiest way to deal with the Warlord weather is to
just stay home on Memorial Day weekend.
