We need to start watching the weather forecast, and looking today it doesn't look very good for next sunday: Buienradar 14 daagse voor Dordrecht

Looking at the details it seems all rain is falling between 10h and 17h

I have a couple of thoughts about this (in random order)

1: There's also a lot of wind forecasted, so it still could blow over or get there much faster, it's still 5 days away
2: We still have a back-up date of oktober 24 "pencilled in"
3: There's no bad photography weather, only insufficient gear protection
4: Weather forecast for the 2019 Haarlem meeting was also very bad, but we went ahead and had a gorgeous day

I think it's too early to take a decision at this moment, but it's definitely something we need to discuss here further. Any other thoughts are very welcome.

I had a look at the forecast too.
However, the forecaster's hall of fame is an empty building.
Let's keep an eye on the outlook and make the decision towards the 3rd.

Currently Buienradar gives most rain in the early morning with even some sun in the afternoon with only one occasional shower. Let's keep our fingers crossed it remains that way.

Copy-past from Pieters message.

I suggest we meet between 10:30 and 11:00 in "Dordts Genoegen", Voorstraat 256, 3311 ET Dordrecht for coffee (and cake), that's nice and central for starting our walk. But if there are other ideas on that just post them here, these are just suggestions to get the discussion going.

Weatherforecast isn't very hopefull. Long period of rain during daytime. What to do?

The rendez-vous adres is fine for me.

Hope te see you all coming sunday!
Quit a lot of ALPHA and NEX gear, a nice collection of Sigma lenses, Dynax and M42 stuff, Gitzo's, Visico's and lots of video-equipment

Weeronline predicts 21.8 mm rain on Sunday. Buienradar gives reasons for hope after 16:00, before that 1-2 mm/hr of rain. In my opinion it is not worth it.

Let's look tomorrow around noon and take a final decision then. Prediction for sunday has been up and down all week so it might look better again tomorrow. But if it remains "as is" I agree it's better to postpone until the 24th.

So "watch this space"
