May Spring Scrimmage - New Information

Post by Bsimon » Mon Apr 08, 2019 10:21 am

As all should know by now the 2019 Edition of the Spring Scrimmage has been pushed back one month due to the bad weather that we had at the time of our original dates in April. Seems like our star party as well as many star parties around the country have not had the best of luck with the weather during the time frame of our scheduled events for the past several years. We were very lucky that our host, Carol Nicaud at the White Horse Retreat Camp graciously offered to allow us to push back one month to the next "New Moon" period in May. Note - I did not ask her to allow us to do this, she offered this to us and for that we should all be grateful. In all the years of the Deep South Star Gaze going back to 1983 this is the first time we have been given a second chance so to speak and there were at least a few other times where if it was offered, we would have probably taken the chance at having better weather with alternate dates.

Our dates for May are Wednesday May 1st to Sunday May 5th. As you can see, an additional day has been added. One or two people, unfortunately, will not be able to make it in May because those dates do conflict with the Texas Star Party or other events on their calendar. Those people are getting refunds. If anyone else wants a refund because of a conflict with our new dates in May, now is the time to ask for it. Now is also the time for those who could not make it in April but who can come in May to register for the Spring Scrimmage in May. As we do with every event, be it the larger DSSG in the fall or with the Spring Scrimmage, we do have a cut off date for cancellations. For the upcoming event that date is Saturday, April 20th as I will be calling in a head count to White Horse on Monday April 22nd. I seriously, seriously doubt that there will be any further possibility of a postponement, the event in May will be it. Anyone not willing to have faith in the prospects for a good event in May should not register in advance or should ask for a refund now.

I am modifying the original reservation form to show the new dates. If you have sent in the earlier form there is no need to do anything. If a meal refund is due I will take care of that or if you want to add the extra day, let me know. The modified form can be found as an attachment on the DSSG Message Board.
