Sid, sorry you missed it. If it is an obvious rain out, John (or someone) will send out an email to the TeamMagnolia mailing list as soon as the call has been made, whether it is the night before or early on the morning of the match, so make sure you are on the mailing list and check your email as late as you can if the weather is questionable. (For those not on the mailing list, you can sign up at http://teammagnolia.com/mailman/listinfo/shooters_teammagnolia.com
). If no email has gone out be 6:45 am on the morning of the match, you can assume that, as John put it, "at least one dumb soul is heading down to the range to try and put on some sort of a match."
I had watched the weather and saw what 'Neck mentioned above, i.e. that there would be rain for a few hours during the night. When I got up Saturday morning, www.weather.com
showed rain until 7 or 8 on their hourly forecast and then nice weather after that, so I loaded the car and headed out. I have to admit when I was driving through heavy rain under a dark sky between Magee and Mendenhall, I began to wonder what in the heck I was doing, but I kept going anyway. When I got there I found that setup had been postponed a bit due to the rain but that the match would go on. Not sure what time we started shooting, but it was a little later than normal. I think that was why it was so easy for Xd357 to shoot getting there as late as he did, because he wasn't THAT far behind the rest of us.
Garett, it was good to meet you and Jonathan, good to see you again (sorry, it's apparently been a while...). Hope to see y'all both at a match again in the near future, and maybe we can squad together sometime.
