    The South Coast AQMD (Air Quality Management District) shows South OC has "moderate" air quality.
    I can certainly feel there is something in the air.
    Anyone having practice cancelled yet?

    Anyone worried about West Coast this weekend having air quality issues?

    We practice at the Pomona fairgrounds and we’ve had practice cancelled the last 2 days. Doesn’t look much better for tomorrow.

    My son's club cancelled practice ... Murrieta no freaking smoke overhead because its all north 20 miles north. I think the club coaches wanted a night off.

    The wind has been blowing to the Northeast off the ocean, so there should be no smoke problems in Irvine. Winds are predicted to stay the same for the weekend.

    My son is in Temecula now doing training. It's not as nad as you'd think but if the wind shifts that could change. Practices yesterday were cancelled.

    Mission Viejo area was pretty bad this morning. I’ll be heading back down the 5/405 from LA later today and I’ll provide an update as I pass through Irvine.

    I live just on the other side of the hill from the fire near Portola Hills, while it is quite visible and scary looking it is pretty much all blowing away from Orange County.

    Also our team manger just forwarded the following from OC Surf/WC.

    "Hi Teams,

    We are closely monitoring air quality with city officials. As of now, all venues are fine. We are expecting off shore winds, which will further help the situation. If anything changes, we will notify teams. Player safety is our main concern.

    We look forward to seeing everyone tomorrow night at registration!"

    That is code for "We have $200,000 in team fees and we aren't giving it back". Prepare to play this weekend.

    Refund Policy
    You may request a refund up until team acceptances. No exceptions. If the Tournament is cancelled due to Inclement Weather Prior to the Start of Competition, teams will be issued partial refunds as determined by the Tournament Committee, after a reasonable amount has been deducted for incurred tournament costs.”

    Let’s hope it doesn’t come down to this policy having to be used. It would mean the fire has gotten worse and there is more danger.
    And I don’t think this board could handle the amount of posts that would come up because of it.

    Looking a little better than this morning, hope we get some onshore winds this afternoon.
