It would need to be hurricane conditions. If the targets are getting blown off the sticks maybe it will be cancelled.. Or we'll screw the targets down and keep shooting.

We could always use steel targets or wrap them in Tyvek.and duct tape.

If it's windy enough maybe we can get some of those Matrix shots.

if you ask me the heat is more of a issue last week at lipsa it was hot.
but most shooters were able to finish.

a good idea i did not do was to freeze water bottles.

Plastic cleaner bags are used on the targets if raining. Keep shooting'


Water is usually provided by the range during the LIC.
On a somewhat unrelated note, I have a bit of advice for anyone who skiis. The plastic cleaning / leaf bags for rain issues may work well for the targets and equipment, but they do not work well if it rains and you want to keep skiing.
They actually work very well to keep you dry by punching holes for your head and arms. however, when, not if, you fall, you will slide down the entire mountain like a greased pig with no way to stop short of the lodge building, an unfortunately placed fence or the cars/busses in the parking lot.
Ask me how I know this. I believe the statement was "I paid for the non refundable lift ticket and I am damn well going to ski today". It seemed like a stroke of genius right after a few shots of Remy Martin VSOP at the bar. Very similar to the famed " Hold my beer and watch this".

I wish. Back when we did that, video cameras were the size of a Buick.

Besides, remember the ABC sports commercial "the agony of defeat"? think of that but not quite so fast or glamorous.
