Said all belong it will be on.  No early call offs like Wolves today when it has been dry all day with a brisk wind.  Very poor from the Wolves promotion. First crying off when Poole were due and now doing the same against Belle Vue. 

One would have thought they are running scared.

Definitely not scared of your shower

not a motocross track now mate

Not proven yet, you ain't had a meeting on it. Still, if Shovlar says it's on it must mean it will be off,  considering how poor his weather predictions are.

You can't brag about a track that's held no action yet anyway.

So you think calling meetings off days in advance is acceptable, when the forecast is reasonably promising?

It’s a terrible precedent to set, and one that was unheard of until recently. Two days in advance because there’s a risk of rain? You are having a laugh if you think that’s acceptable.

Anyway its dry in Poole with sunny periods with the risk of an occassional shower this morning. No problem. Tomorrow showers in the morning dying out to give a dry late afternoon and evening. Unless the forecast changes there’s no reason why it shouldn’t go ahead.

Matt Ford is giving the first 300 kids through the gates a free easter egg. Nice gesture from the club.

A terrible precedent that was set a few years ago when Poole called off a meeting against Lakeside as it would affect their planned team changes.

It rained over night, but it is now presently dry but overcast. We will need a complete dry day and a bit of luck tomorrow. Hope that helps.

The terrible stench of precedents was set when Poole called off a match against Lakeside a few seasons ago because of 'potential to damage ones business' all because you were missing riders. No precedent has stunk as much since.

Calling off matches days in advance is wrong although it would appear a necessary evil for some although why this is going to entice anyway to bother travelling to watch the sport is beyond me. No wonder crowds are down. 

The forecast for the whole of easter was dreadful in all areas so it's no wonder 19 matches got called off. If you really believe the forecast was 'reasonably promising' you most certainly are the only one reading it that way.

So probably an early call off for Wednesday at the motorcross track then. Your predicting skills are dreadful.
