The night before an event, the committee will advise by email and social media by 6pm if the event will be cancelled due to weather concerns. This decision will be made by consensus of 3 or more members of the committee based on forecast rainfall, wind speed, temperature and UV rating. Any cancellations will be expressly for the purpose of safety and avoiding equipment damage and as such are not negotiable.
Conditions preceding cancellation:
If the projected temperature according to the Bureau of Meteorology Detailed Forecast (or ‘feels like’ if available) is over 40 degrees for at least half the duration of the event.
60% rainfall continuing for at least 2 hours of the event predicted by the Bureau of Meteorology Detailed Forecast.
Any ‘Significant Weather’ listed at the Bureau of Meteorology Detailed Forecast at the discretion of the Committee.
Any catastrophic or severe weather events listed at the Bureau of Meteorology Detailed Forecast at the discretion of the Committee.
From time to time the committee may issue additional recommendations or warnings when conditions are borderline or UV forecast is extremely high. We will endeavour to ensure as much equipment as possible is present to ensure comfort and safety, but we remind members to provision themselves accordingly for a full day out in the Australian climate.
