Wondering...
Anyone here going to be there?

And is it going to happen, you think, with the hurricane coming and all?

I'll be IN Florida, but just not that side of the state, lol.

Does anyone know the probability of it being canceled? Historically has an event such as this been cancelled due to weather? I know last year they did not cancel the US Open...

The U.S. Open wasn't cancelled but we or should I say the town of Chesapeake was shutdown that Thursday.

Wendy~~~Carol all the way in Florida! Yeah!

When you say shut down do you mean kinda like a holiday where nothing was open or do you mean that no one was allowed in the town, i.e. tourist?

It is a shame that my paranoia has made it all the way to the pool related section. Someone tell me to shut up and I wall go away! /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

The town was shut down, because there was no electrical power. The police established a curfew, to keep people off the roads, at night, and to stop possible looting.

But the hotel had power? From generators?

The Holiday Inn had generators that Thursday night. My hotel at the time, the Hampton Inn did not so I wound up sleeping with Kato and Phil in their room. (This is why I'm staying at the Holiday Inn--for the generators that is. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif) Q-Masters brought a generator in on Saturday and, well that's just another story.

Deanna,
I didn't know there was a tournament that weekend. Where exactly is the tournament? I'll be in the Keys from the 11th till the 18th, God and nature willing.

From my experience, anyone is allowed to take pictures at any time during the tournament, but,
<font color="red"> NO Flashes Are Allowed. </font color>

If anyone is going, be prepared and get the fastest film available to you. Although there is plenty of light available for the TV matches, it is much dimmer during the other rounds.
