    ***SOLO IN TERRE HAUTE CANCELLED***

    Due to the flooding and state of emergency happening currently due to
    flooding, the Indy Region Solo that was to be held in Terre Haute is now
    cancelled.
    No make up date is scheduled at this point.
    Any questions, send an email to your Solo Chairs.
    Regards and stay dry,
    Will Lahee
    Solo Co-Chair

    Oh, man - that stinks. I saw they got 8" of rain, but I figured it would all be gone by tomorrow. I was really looking forward to the new site. [:'(]

    Any other events going on around the state tomorrow? I need to race.

    So, no chance it could clear up and be back on?

    I don't think it will be back on.

    Cancelling an event like this is a tough call. You have to guess what things will be like tomorrow and give folks a reasonable amount of notice. Waiting until 10 PM tonight or later wouldn't give folks enough time. As of right now, I think Vigo County is still in a state of emergency - it is currently illegal to drive on many of the roads. A guy on our Impreza message boards lives in Terre Haute and said all the roads to the airport are currently impassable due to high water.

    I think Will and Michael made a tough, but good call.

    Trust me, canceling events is truly a last resort measure. It's not so much the weather, but the resulting flooding we are worried about. Flooding like this does not go away in a day.

    As disappointed as you may be, you have no idea the disappointment I feel right now with all the work so many people put in to make this event happen.

    If anyone has to race tomorrow, it looks like South Bend Region is having an event at Grissom.

    I first want to say Kudos to our leadership. I know this was a terrible call to make, but keeping the safety of our members first and foremost is to be commended.

    I know y'all are still figuring things out, but does this mean we are short an event this season, or are we trying to add one into the schedule? Has the IR ever had such an occurance as this?

    Don't need an answer any time soon, just some questions to bring up.

    Thanks for the kudos Bob.....just keep bringing the brownies and cookies! [;)]

    Answers to all of your questions will come soon enough. Right now our focus is on the Tour coming up at the end of this month.
