            Agree it looks grim, was hoping to be there! Let's hope it changes 👍

                I'm undecided about this one, should it be postponed until next week, the 28th.

                  That's ok by me, because Tomorrow looks bad for me 😫

                    Thanks for your input Dave, part of my thought process was based around the weather coming from the west, where most of the regular attendees live.

                    That's it then, let's postpone tomorrow (Saturday 21st) & look at it again next week 28th.

                    (Will change the date in the title of the thread).

                        Out of interest, what's the weather like where you are this morning (21st).

                        It's dry & sunny with a clear blue sky, although a little windy here at IB, rain not forecast until 16:00.

                        Was it the right decision to postpone until next week.

                          Broken cloud with dark cloud coming in from the west, probably the right decision as it's forecast heavy rain from midday 👎
