    There are minimal people from the general public, and any that are there are specifically invited by the pilot attendees.

    But with the way the weather is looking I don't think that's going to be an issue.

    I have given up my hotel room - 48 hour cancellation policy at the hotel. Still have the option to come if weather improves, but not looking promising at the moment. Next year....

    Not only do I have a professional commitment, but I just dropped off the aircraft to the avionics people so they can fix what they bolluxed. However, Adam is the soul of generosity and organizes a truly wonderful event. I wish I could come.

    I'll take the blame for the weather. I asked my partner if he was interested in coming to it, and he's the worst weather magnet ever.

    Seriously, last long trip I took with him, Houston was in a drought. Once we got there? Tropical storm. And he once got stranded with our former boss for three days due to weather, which included a tornado. So I can see how a mere invitation could bring rain...

    Unfortunately, I don't think we're going to make it. I already can't bring my family because my wife has a gig on Saturday. :(

    Hey folks due to the horrible Forecast, 98% chance of precip and 200 to 400' ceilings the FlyBQ AND ALL ASSCOCIATED EVENTS have been CANCELLED. Only the 2nd time we had to do this in probably 16 years but no other choice given the forecast

    Of course, then there were the years where we sat at your house eating cheesesteaks and looking up at the stars through the forecast 200-foot overcast... Oh wait. LOL

    Bummed, even though I probably wasn't going to make it this year! I hope we can all come next year.

    Bummer! That being said, the weather is ugly and sounds like it will be for the next few days.

    Not to mention the (almost) need for hip waders to get down into the grassy area where the BBQ is usually held....

    really not a surprise - a couple more inches of rain to fall between now and Sat PM.

    Well, that sucks.

    But at least you can't blame me for bringing the bad weather!

    It seems to have worked very well, indeed.

    Also I heard you got DFW over the top. Rare but nice when it happens.
