Holiday Party – Cancellation & Reschedule

on, Fri Dec 6, 2013 by, rt66.rd

TriOKC’ers,

Due to the weather, we’ve made the decision to cancel tonight’s Holiday Party & to reschedule it for next Friday, Dec 13th. After talking with ODOT, they are expecting a hard freeze of the roads this evening due to the temps remaining well below freezing, making them even more hazardous than they are now. We apologize for the short notice, but safety remains our #1 concern for all club activities, & we know you’ll understand. As it stands, all the fun & festivities we had planned have already been confirmed for the reschedule. We hope to see you there!
