According to WEATHER.COM, there is a 30% chance of rain on Saturday 5/2. I will re-check on friday. If it seems like it is going to rain on Saturday, then I am not making the 90 mile trek to Santa Barbara.

In 10 years we have had serious rain threats many times, including downpours just hours before the event,
but the BMW gods always take care of us. It's not going to rain.

Shhh...

We don't get measurable precipitation in Santa Barbara in May.

We must all think positive, and the Bimmer Gods will bless us as they always have...

Jon, I have my hand around the rain God's throat right now and he's begging for his life, while trying to tell me it will just be partly cloudy!

We're are going to have a great time!

this will be my first year going but the possibility of rain is making me seriously reconsider. i really don't want to drive all the way down there in the pouring rain and then it rain the whole time i'm there. they're calling for 80% chance of rain in pleasanton starting tomorrow morning. :thumbdwn:

Come on now, don't be a Debbie Downer!

If there is any precipitation it will be drip-drops.

This is Santa Barbara in May. We haven't had rain here in May in years and years.

If you review the history of the event we used to run the show in April, and many times doom and gloom was predicted (rain-wise), and it never came to pass.

You will regret it if you elect to opt out based on a chance of showers predicted.

I just read one forecast which said if it rains, it will be less than 2/100's of an inch -- not enough to get a t-shirt wet!

Yeah, seriously. Who cares even if it DOES rain? There's not going to be any "downpours" or anything of the sort. It's going to be an AWESOME DAY. Come or you'll regret it when you see the pictures afterwards =) Rain or shine I'll be there!

PS try to think of a time when a forecast calling for isolated rain was accurate? things can change within the next day or so. Accuweather.com says theres a CHANCE at a quick shower passing sometime in the morning on saturday but otherwise partly cloudy. A CHANCE.

It's a "rain-or-shine" event, and we all (inc. SB Polo) stand firmly behind that.

Like most modern athletic stadiums, the polo field has drainage built into it.

It's not like a regular lawn (i.e., will not turn into a mud bog).

I've said this a few times already, but even if we do get a couple of sprinkles, it won't be enough to even measure, and will not affect the day's proceedings.

I don't know how to state this more clearly.

confident are we? :D

i'll come either way. we've already paid a deposit for our room and dinner Friday night.

i think i'm going to pass on detailing the car though today. that would piss me off to back out of the garage in the morning and it have just started raining. :mad:
