Hi all, what's the latest word?

We have about 8 folks planning on heading up from Loch/Stargate, but 
some have said they're not wild about the expected weather.  I figured I 
would forward the question and try and get some more details on how the 
site holds up to wet weather.

According to some forecasts they are looking at high temp tomorrow in 
Corsicana to be between 36 and 44, and a 70-90% chance of up to a half 
inch of rain.    As one of our folks put it "I'll fight in the cold, & 
I'll fight in the rain, but both gets iffy.  At what point do we call a 
rain cancellation?"

Do we have any sort of head count on who is planning on making it up?


p.s. as a related question, what other events can we add some melee 
fighting to between now and Gulf Wars?
