Another thought

If tomorrow weather forecast remains bad and we cancel (probability of that seems high) we will move the meeting to oktober 24 (as agreed before)

But in addition we could meet with those who feel like it around 15:00, have coffee/tea/other and by the time it's dry (probably around 15:30/16:00) we go out and do a late afternoon stroll, have dinner and afterwards do some evening/night shots in the harbour area.
Might be too late for people who have to work the next day but in case there's a few others interested in such a plan I would drive to Dordrecht for this.

This would be in addition to oktober 24, not instead of, and would only be if we have to cancel the normal meeting tomorrow.

I would visit Dordrecht for such a plan.
The weather forecast certainly allows for it.

Yep, agree. But another appointment makes it impossible to join

Sounds like a plan to me (even if I have to work the next day )

Sorry to say, but I can't visit Dordrecht and join you in the second half of the afternoon and evening. Due to family (wining & dining) obligations.

I like your late afternoon plan Pieter; I'm looking forward to 'Dordrecht after the rain'! My only worry is that there's not much wind tomorrow so chances are the rain will linger for a few hours more. In that case it's a no go I'm afraid. So for me it's a: yes, unless ... We can make it definite tomorrow morning, can't we?

Here's the weatherforecast for tomorrow in Dordrecht



Basically continuous rain until about 15:00 but after that even a little sunshine.

Even though the weather foracasters hall of fame is an empty building (great quote Fred ) I think most forecasts I've heard on radio/television say it's clearing up in the afternoon.

So I think it's wise to postpone the normal meeting planned for tomorrow to oktober 24, I think the chances that the rain will move away faster are zero to none.

The late afternoon/dinner/evening plan still looks feasible and we have Fred, Domien, Leo and myself as potential participants, but of course everybody is welcome to join.
In case Leo's fear (rain staying around much longer) we can still cancel that tomorrow around noon.

So in short:

1: The "official" meeting is postponed until oktober 24
2: A smaller group (but everybody welcome) will decide about a late afternoon/evening shoot tomorrow around noon
    In case it goes ahead I suggest we'll meet around 15:00 in "Dordts Genoegen", Voorstraat 256, 3311 ET Dordrecht and take it from there.

I would appreciate if everybody can post below that they have seen that the meeting is postponed until the 24th, I always worry someone still shows up at 10:30 in the meeting place and finds himself there alone. I really would like to avoid that at all cost.

Seen and noted it.

One restriction: I'm coming back on the 23th of october from a trip by 2CV from France, arriving late. I'm not sure whether I will join on 24th....

I will put 24th in the agenda. If we're on for Sunday 15:00 I'll be there. It allows me to go speed-cycling in the morning (yes, 50 km in the pouring rain, nothing a hot shower cannot fix) and I will check this thread around noon.

By the way, weeronline predicts rain until 18:00. But it remains a guessing game.

Marcel cannot join tomorrow afternoon/evening - he will join 24th.
His work obligation on Monday is to big and so close after our holiday - he has loads of work waiting and is unable to postpone.

I would like to join both tomorrow and the 24th except when it rains very very hard.

I have been following this vicariously wishing I could be there to meet the group and shoot together. I have been rewarded with the "forecasters hall of fame is an empty building."    I usually shoot alone but I have a friend that I occasionally go out with to shoot. Here is a typical plan. Me - "Bob, let's try next Tuesday morning with Saturday as a back up for bad weather." Bob - "Sounds good." Bob (six days before the Tuesday)- "Roger, there is a rain chance of 70% for Tuesday so it's looking like Saturday." "Me - "Bob, and you believe that prediction. How old are you?"

Enjoy your day together (or day and a half). Wish I was there, good or bad weather.
