Hi everyone,  

Well, it’s hurricane season, and it seems that we might be blessed with Florence or it’s remnants for our meet next weekend. 

As most of you who’ve been here before know, we unfortunately lack indoor space to host the event, and canopies matched with wind and rain aren’t optimal. 

SO, if Florence hits near here, we’re faced with 2 options, cancel the event or set a rain date. At this point, I’d like to float a rain date IF we’ll be affected by the storm. 


The date we’re looking at is September 29th, 2 weeks after the planned date. To be clear, this is not a postponement now, just a possible rain date!  

IF YOUVVE RSVPed FOR THE MEET, PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF THE 29th WILL WORK. Also, please respond if you aren’t able to make the original date but can make the rain date. 

This will allow everyone some time to book a second reservation in time. 

Our plan is to make the call by midweek next week, and I’ll post it here. 

Keep your collective fingers crossed that it goes out to sea and everything can go as planned. 

Thanks, 

Lane and Jeanie

Bump.... for all to be reminded....


Everyone on the east coast is collectively hoping it goes out to sea...but we'll see.

Forecasts here in central Virginia have gone from "don't be too concerned," to "please start to prepare."

Our hope is to make the call tomorrow with regards to the meet. If it plans to stay south, the meet will go on as planned. 

I have all of our fans pointed southward. Seems to be working so far. ( Sorry guys down south) 


Jeanie and I wish everyone impacted by the storm safe travels and no damage! Our thoughts and prayers are with you!

Hello everyone, I wanted to provide a quick update regarding the meet.  As of this morning, the meet is still ON for Saturday. They’re only calling for very slight chance of a shower. This is based on early morning spaghetti plots. Obviously if things change, so might the meet. 

Apparently all the fans that we turned on have worked, but unfortunately while we’re having fun in the North, our friends to the South will be suffering, so our thoughts will be with them. 


This is the biggest signup to date for our meet, so I’m grateful that it looks like it may happen as planned. I’m expecting at least 40 to attend based on registrations. Even though it’s past the deadline, if you haven’t RSVPed yet, please do so, as we’ll begin food prep in the next couple days. 


I’ll be making a final call late tonight or early tomorrow morning with a final “go” or not, but so far so good.  


Thanks to everyone who registered and also to you for your patience while we sort this out!  We’re looking forward to seeing everyone! 


Stay tuned!
