We’re watching the weather but for now, touch is on today @5:30 @Tidal Basin! EDIT (since whatsapp is down): rain’s not due till after 7 so we’re still on!
So it looks like there may be a bit of a contest for space at the Tidal Basin tomorrow morning so Saturday Touch will be at the Mall instead. Still 9:30 AM!
Sunny and 70 degrees! Perfect weather for touch today at the Tidal Basin!
Glorious day for touch with sunny weather in the high 70s! We’re on @5:30 PM at the Tidal Basin!
Saturday 9:30 at the Tidal Basin. We’ve made an abrupt transition into Fall. It will be a beautiful day for touch tomorrow, and dare I say it will feel a little chilly in the morning after the long hot and humid summer.
We’ll play Wednesday on the Mall 5:30pm near Smithsonian metro, probably closer to Washington Monument.
Forecasts are a little inconsistent at the moment, but there is about 50% chance of light to moderate rain. Right now it looks like you’re likely to get wet enough to wash the sweat away, but not enough to call off touch. Otherwise the temp will be a pleasant mid 70s with minimal wind.
I’ll keep an eye out in case it takes a turn for the worse.
It should be a perfect 75 degrees this afternoon. 5:30pm. The days are getting shorter but we can still get in a good run around on the tidal basin
We’ll play at 9:30 on the Mall, metro side near Washington monument
Three weeks ago someone beat me to booking tomorrow morning on the tidal basin. The Exiles planned a game and booked the afternoon, but they assured me they had nothing to do with the morning booking. I assume it has something to do with the rally tomorrow, but seems like a random location. Maybe the soccer people were overzealous. At any rate, the tidal basin still shows reserved tomorrow. I will go early and scope it out, but I don’t expect we can play there.
I’m very mindful of the rally tomorrow with with our safety as number one priority. Secondarily ease of accessing the field. The rally is supposed to be only about 700 people and will be at Union Square, next to the Capitol reflecting pool. There are only a few minor road closures near the capitol, so getting downtown shouldn’t be a problem. Secondly any interaction with the protesters should be almost non-existent if we play on the Mall section between Smithsonian Metro and Washington Monument. For what it’s worth there is also a counter-demonstration at Freedom plaza around noon, which is too far away and too late to have any effect on us.
If for some reason the Mall is cordoned off in the morning, the fallback is the mall on the WWII memorial side. I’m still going to check the tidal basin in the morning, but barring any last minute change we’ll meet on the Mall.
we’re squeezed out by softball amd all the roped off sections on the mall. Tidal basin is clear and ready to play!
