Geez a little rain (ok a fair amount) of rain blew away months of planning, loads of interest and a group of folks that call them "HardKore" wheelers ?
Most folks have (had) enclosed cabins, heaters and windhield wipers. Yes you might get damp but if you used your head. Then you could of wheeled all day without even getting wet.
What if it had been in the 90`s with the sun beating down on you. Risk of sunburn would put you on the trailer ?
Rain IMHO is not an excuse. Somewhere I think there is a bigger story.
There was about 6 minutes of planning for the drag races, not months. The fact that people left after being in the rain for 12 hours doesnt exactly ruin an event. There were lots of people there and I would say pretty much all of them had fun. Of course you had people there for food, they paid for it so they wanted something in return. Nobody paid for trophy's or to run the lights (since Deano came up with that a few hours before people started showing up) so when they got there fill they left, big deal. Sounds like you would be an excellent "promotor" so maybe you sould put on the pig gig next year so it doesnt disappear. As long as your not behind the wheel running up trees it should be a good way to pass the time for you.
