Given the poor weather forecast we decided to establish a two possibility plan for tomorrow...assuming that a normal evening is not likely to be in the cards given the current expected conditions. Immediately following the snow/ice options are two possible agendas for the weekend depending on conditions.
1. ASSUMING THE ALEXANDRIA GOVERNMENT OFFICES DO NOT CLOSE, DURANT WILL NOT CLOSE. THEREFORE, ON FRIDAY NIGHT IF WEATHER IS BAD BUT DOES NOT PRECLUDE ANY ARRIVALS AT DURANT AT ALL, WE WILL HOLD THE FRIDAY NIGHT PORTION OF THE RETREAT WITH WHOEVER FEELS THEY CAN SAFELY MAKE THEIR WAY TO DURANT. IF FULL ATTENDANCE IS CLEARLY NOT FEASIBLE RISER PLACEMENT WILL AWAIT SATURDAY'S RETREAT. SMALL GROUP COACHING...REMEDIAL SWING TRAINING...ETC. WILL BE CONDUCTED WITH WHOEVER MAKES IT TO FRIDAY EVENINGS RETREAT.
2. IF THE WEATHER IS SO BAD THAT IT IS NOT ADVISABLE FOR ANYONE TO ATTEMPT TO REACH DURANT WE WILL CANCEL AND ATTEMPT TO START SATURDAY'S REHEARSAL AS PLANNED. SINCE THE STORM IS PROJECTED TO END SOMETIME SATURDAY MORNING, IT IS POSSIBLE WE MAY HAVE TO DELAY THE STARTING TIME...BUT IT IS HIGHLY UNLIKELY WE WILL CANCEL ALL OF SATURDAY'S RETREAT.
WE WILL OFFICIALLY ANNOUNCE INFORMATION ON THE ABOVE OPTIONS BY THE YAHOOGROUPS EMAIL AND ON THE HARMOPHONE at (703)836-0969. INFORMALLY WE WILL ALSO ADD IT TO THE HARMOBLOG. My plan is to provide an update sometime tomorrow before 2:00pm and a final determination no later than 5:00pm
Several applicants who are in process have been invited to attend the retreat. If you have contact info for any applicants who may be planning to attend, please forward this information to them.
