Please note the following protocols for wet weather and ground cancellation.
When the elements unload and its bucketing even a well draining Smyth Field is not immune from an event cancellation.
We are guided by Maitland Council and follow their directives with respect to ground closure. In the event of wet weather their website is updated in the afternoon and advises as to specific ground closures.
We will also advise our club members via:
- Text to your nominated mobile;
- Email to your nominated email address; and
- Update to our website.
That should cover it! In the event of possible lightning activity the safety of our club athletes and supporters is paramount and we will not hesitate in cancelling the evening if there is possible lightening strikes. The nature of summer storms may see lightning activity roll into Maitland after we have started events so please keep alert if the clouds come rolling in.
