I use 2 or 3 forecasts and try to get details each side of the mountain - on the wind side often more accurate. 'spot' forecasts are not on the mountain but the nearest town or city forecast - beware of them.

Signing up for events and cancelling
« Reply #1 on: Mon May 20, 2013, 04:13 PM »
For last weekend's trip to Gunma, several people cancelled a week or more before, one said that it was dependent upon work, and would let me know 2 days before the trip. I have no problem with this, as long as I know.

However, last Friday, less than 4 hours before we were supposed to meet, 2 more people cancelled. I tried to contact another individual that was signed up, he said he was at a nomikai and had "forgotten" about the trip. One person was nice, and has reimbursed me for their share of the money lost on the hired car, I have not heard from the other 2. Weather would have been excellent on Saturday in Gunma.

As Andy, I and other event organizers spend a lot of time planning, and in some cases, money renting vehicles, making lodge reservations, buying food, etc., as Andy has said in the above post, either commit to going on the trip, or tell the organizer up front that you may have work conflicts, and can't commit 100%.

This is the 2nd time that people have done this to me personally, on a Yamanashi trip, 1 person cancelled about 2000 on Friday about 12 hours before meeting time, the other 2 about 2330 or midnight, claimed it was going to rain and didn't want to go anymore. It didn't rain at all in the end, only sunny/foggy.

Another request, if you ride in someone's car, and then go back by yourself or with another person instead, please pay your share of the transportation costs, or at least half of what your share would have been. Unfortunately this has happened several times to me, probably other drivers also.

Thanks,

Dave
