Meet could be potentially called off

Due to the weather lads and the fact that the road conditions are changing by the minute I may call this off if the thaw doesn't start soon. How does everyone else feel about this?

Damien, I think most of us have summer tyres, and with this weather something is going to happen. This should be called off until the weather clears.

well the thaw should begin toward the enf of this week Damien but until then it is dangerous. Its not for another two weeks so might have to play it by ear.......

That's the point from speaking to the lads up the country it seems to be that the weather is getting worse by the mintue and there is a heap of snow out there so that would take a long time to tah out etc. Even if the snow is gone there is still a lot of potential for ice etc

I think if there is any risk at all we should reschedule for Feb maybe, but I reckon we'll probably know closer to the time

You're right, the only thing is that people may need a bit more notice if its going to be Feb, but sure thats for another day.

Ahh ya that can be all done soon enough. The problem we have now is lack of info and you can't make a decision without some concrete info.

True and the weather can be a bit hit and miss as well, if its nice here it may not be as nice for you guys coming up from the south.

Well lads there is a big thaw on here at the moment-this is after heavy snow yesterday. I just drove from Maynooth to Dunboyne via a R road and there were no problems with ice. Temp is above O for the first time in a while.

Unless it snows the week of the meet, I think it should still go ahead. It's still 13 days away, right?

ya it's about that but with the weather changing daily I'd prefer to air on the side of caution as some of the lads like me have spent crazy amounts of money on their cars. I certainly don't want to prang my car again I spent enough fixing it the first time and that was a heart ache in itself.

What about the Guinness World Record attempt in the UK? Would be nice to have a 20+ strong Irish Alfisti hardcore represented there
