Working in conjunction with Pelican Park, we’ve been informed that the fields are prepared to take a lot of rain. They’ve told us it’s been very dry the last month and the fields are prepared for rain. That said the forecast still looks like cloudy with scattered thunderstorms.
We’re prepared to play this weekend. In the event of thunder/lightning strikes within 10 miles, we’ll delay for 30 minutes.
We’ll communicate via our registration platform with emails and text messages. Pelican Park also has a hotline to call (985) 626-1444 in the event of severe weather.
