dammit, pirates... looks like the most craptastic weather ever tonight, including torrential rains, gale force winds, lows in the 30's. add a plague of locusts and i think we'd be on to something.

so... do we...
A) plan to play anyway, knowing turnout may be dismal...
2) get together and drink instead, cuz that's what we do best...
c) wimp out, stay home, and build shelters for the coming apocalypse

Can I vote twice? I vote for A and B, with a modification to B, such that we, as per normal, drink while playing in the rain, rather than bailing. Come on, it's friggin November. Wha'd you expect? And I invited a new guy, so A (dismal turnout) may not be as bad as you think.

Besides, everything is more fun when you're like a soggy noodle. See ya at Sherwood...

Windy with showers and thunderstorms likely. A few storms may be severe. High 74F. Winds SW at 20 to 30 mph. Chance of rain 90%.

hmm. maybe meet at home base at 7pm instead?

hmm. well, i was just thinking that that way we could get our drink on and meet up in a bar while we're waiting for folks to show up. then, once we have enough people to play, we can roll out. if not enough show, we can drink up.

Frag it. I say we meet at Sherwood. You're gonna get wet no matter where you ride to.

I'll bring a tarp for shelter.

Chimbly's afraid of rain! Chimbly's afraid of rain! Chimbly's afraid of rain!

Spud: Tink's talking about a race he's setting up;it's a Pirate thang.

So when's the next polo match going to be? I was thinking next Wed,but that's the day before Turkey-time. Is next Wed cool? Or we could do it Thurs afternoon and mix some gravy in with the Sparks.
