Rain Cancellation

Sorry folks, it just can't happen today. Constant on again, off again rain expected all day. Trail is ridable but getting greasy. Without some sunshine and the continued drizzle, it's only expected to get worse. Tentative rain date for WEMS has been scheduled for 9/24.

Bummer! But I'll look forward to Sept 24th!

I hate to see cancellations, but you have to keep both the riders and the trails from getting torn up!

By the way, the USGP of Cyclocross is the weekend of the 24th. Hopefully that doesn't cause any rider conflicts.

We will look at the 24th tentatively. Thats what WEMS had set for a rain date Too early to sift through all schedule conflicts. Just has to be completed before the championship. I'll try to have a solid date Monday.

I second karlbeck216, safety and trail conditions are the priority, you guys made the right choice.

I realize there will always be conflicts, but avoiding the 24th (if possible), might be helpful. The USGP is a very popular event (for both fans and riders).

Conflicts are inevitible and rescheduling is difficult. It would be unfortunate for both WORBA chapters and our participants if this is rescheduled on the same day as Fall Color Festival September 24th.

I know it is "Pitchblack Singletrack" but now that it is on a normal two day weekend and with it being later as in typically colder overnight lows I would be all for a noon or 10am start or something of that nature. If nothing else this should help turnout.

If need be, those who pre-registered can they be refunded?

RE the "conflict" on the 24th: Watch pro's race by day, do your own racing by night!

The 24th is also the same weekend as WORS Bear Paw. It would be cool to see this not be the weekend of the 24th.

In defense of the 24th as the rain date, there aren't any dates left in Sept that don't conflict with something...

10-11th: Gnome-Fest and WORS Treadfest

17-18th: Chequamegon FTF.

24-25th: USGP, Fall Color Fest, WORS Bear Paw

Oct 1st: WEMS Finals at Levis.
