Subject: Weather up-date for this Sunday's "Rattlesnake Run"

Hi everyone,

At this point the extended weather forecast is calling for an 80% chance of rain on Sunday, zero sunshine and a high of 14 degrees, feeling like 12 degrees....so it's not looking good.

I will continue to monitor the forecast...because they (the weather people) have gotten it wrong before....hopefully they're wrong this time as well.

I will make a judgment call on Saturday, if it's still on or not...so keep an eye out for my e-mail. Check before heading out.

However, despite this foreboding weather forecast, KEEP SENDING ME YOUR RSVPs, BECAUSE IF IT'S A GO, I NEED TO LET THE RESTAURANT KNOW HOW MANY THERE WILL BE FOR THE PATIO LUNCHEON.

The cut off for RSVPs is Saturday morning June 26th/2015 at 10:00am. If you just show up, I can't guarantee there will be enough food!!

If it is canceled, due to the weather, the alternate rain day is targeted to be Sunday July 26th/2015.

I'll keep you posted. Any questions or concerns, please feel free to send me an e-mail.

Regards,

Lou

Tomorrow's "Rattlesnake Run" CANCELED due to the rains!

Hi everyone,

We've decided to cancel tomorrow's 'Rattlesnake Run' due to the rains. They have started in my area and in all the areas involving tomorrow's drive. According to the weather reports, these rains will carry-on all day today and right into tomorrow...with 80% to 90% chance of rain reporting in all the areas we would be driving. Not only that, they're reporting winds and it will be cold...in the low teens 13-14 degrees C ...feeling like 11C. That's a little chilly for many of us looking to go "topless"

Save the new Date! ....The alternate 'Rain Date' is scheduled for Sunday July 26th/2015.

This date fits in nicely, right in between the Drive, BBQ & Car Show @ Sun Collision on July 12th and Italian Car Day on August 8th/2015.
