Default A little more communication next time please

I was registered last time and waited most of the day then and again yesterday. I was there promptly before the 8am scheduled meeting. At the 9am meeting you guys said: "If it doesn't go off by noon we will cancel" I waited till noon and saw the flags being taken away from the beach so I packed up and left-as did many others. Next time please put your dry erase board by the bench in front of bathroom (or somewhere) and give a written update.

Ken,

sorry to hear about your ordeal yesterday. I am very sure we said at the captains meeting to meet by the car at noon for an update. We broke for lunch at 12:00 and posted it on the whiteboard at the car with all the information regarding what to expect if there wasn't any wind by 1:30.

Again sorry for any lack of communication you received.

-Chris

Ken,

Thanks for coming out to support the event.

It's unfortunate the wind didn't cooperate with the schedule.

A sign was posted at 12pm with all information at the location of the Rider's meeting. Chris and I hung out to answer any questions regarding schedule.

Suggestions are certainly helpful and encouraged. We are volunteers here working towards a great cause. We have families, jobs, and lives like everyone else. We worked all through the night to make this thing happen. A thank you goes along way too.
