Inclement Weather Policy
The majority of our events are held outdoors and they are rarely cancelled due to weather — unless there’s a chance of thunder and lightning (or rough, high water for paddle events). Please be sure to check the website or Facebook the morning of an event if stormy weather is predicted. We will do our best to announce the cancellation.
