    If you really want to wear traditional dresses, just start to wear kilts. It’s the heritage of Scotland and resemblance of Scottish culture

Road conditions will prevent my glorious BB fest at RDG
I would appreciate any consideration AMS could make in this decision to prevent my untimely death on icy roadways.

At the present moment, the only bridge out of town is closed.

Unless it is re-opened, I'll will be unable to attend.

A "Hi speed Low drag" setup.

Which for me is more like "Slightly Above Average speed, Slightly Less drag"

Same, roads are too dangerous, if only it could be rescheduled.

Most of W.O.L.F. is out... The remaining 4 of us are trying to find alternate routes and plan out travel... We'll see if we can attend or not...

Our 8 are not going to be able to attend as well unless road conditions drastically change. Agree with the above though reschedule would be epic.

Myself and Kobamalyn will not be attending due to the weather.  like it was said somewhere else, i have no problem playing in the cold (used to play in New England all through winter) its the road conditions getting to and from.

I'm sad to say that I can't make it as well. Road conditions are horrible coming from ft worth.

Wish I could say differently, but had to turn back. We tried, but road conditions stopped us.

I can't make it coming from Lawton Oklahoma. I'm obviously not alone. This "AMS Staff" is a really great group of guys by not giving refunds.

Pretty sure that provided you don't come to the event you can get that refund in some form or another... least that's how RY2 was handled.

 

Also, it's unwise to bite the hand that feeds you. Show the staff that run these awesome events some respect. Unfortunately it takes some money to snag some of these AO's and that means paying some money up front I'm sure.

Exactly. 

 

They already paid out their expenses, paid for the AO, paid to move gear out, paid to get staff on site, they are all there DOING the event in this weather while you are sitting at your computer whining.

 

If they give out refunds based on the weather, then they are being exceptionally nice and cool to you.   By all means, HOPE for a refund if you want but if you EXPECT a refund knowing the fixed expenses that AMS already laid out for this event than you are being selfish.

Fixed that for you instead.

 

 

You should probably just post an introduction thread~

We honestly tried to make it, but as most if you know, the roads were so backed up, that we couldn't have made it without serious hazard and adding ourselves to the enormous number of motorists who had to be rescued by emergency services, as we were informed by the State Highway Patrol.

Hope you guys have had fun!

how many people ended up playing today?? Dep and I tried driving up Friday...  roads were so bad that after over an hour of driving (and not getting out of Ft worth) we turned around.  It was funny (but not really funny) to see all the 4x4 look alike trucks stuck on the bridges.

It's always the 4x4s and SUVs that get stuck up here when it snows or ices...  

 

I lift my glass to those who made it, we had some of our East Wind guys dart down to DDAP with a trailer pre-staging an M151 and hauling back a Gaz-69, it was just snow up there but it was looking fairly ugly even that far north.

Did anyone gopro the event?  I would love to see some footage.  Also, has there been any thought of possibly giving a small discount to the people that were not able to attend to their next event?  maybe a 15% to 25% discount....

Gents, no one has said there will be no refunds, stop jumping to unreasonable conclusions.

AMS is a very honorable group and will treat everyone right. I imagine at least they would be more than happy to apply your registration towards another OP.

At least allow them the time to re-group before commencing with teenage girl like whines and requests (not talking about everyone, you know who you are).
