That decision would be announced on site over the loud speaker, on WDUX FM 92.7/800AM, the event announcer and through Amateur Radio Emergency Services (ARES) operators to the people on the course.
The only reason the event would be delayed or cancelled is for your safety or civil emergency. There will be no refunds for cancellation of the event. Registration gift will be mailed.
