If it is any consolation, Path Valley and Lernerville cancelled. Clinton County cancelled as of last week due to some problems with the racers. My wife will be happy.

I don't know what else can be said that hasn't been said already. The management at that place is horrendously bad. I realize that on nights when the weather isn't great, you're not gonna fill the place BUT in racing, loyalty is huge. When you're loyal to your fans and teams, they'll be loyal to you in return. Once you start jerking them around like the grove has in recent years, they eventually lose that loyalty and hence you lose their support. Lose enough support and the gates will close for good. That's the last thing I want to see happen but if this keeps up, it's inevitable. If it wasn't for the prestige of the name “Williams Grove" and the fact that they run 410's unopposed on Friday nights, it would probably happen a lot quicker. I really hope it doesn't come to that but they've already lost a lot of long time fans and as long as this keeps up, they're gonna keep losing fans until there's no fans left.
Way she goes.............

Yep, that's simply an out and out lie. Can't call it anything but what it is. The forecast shows no rain. None.

I understand and applaud :clap: their cancelation policy because I don't live in WG's backyard. I had already decided at noon that someone else could have my top row reserve seats tonight.

Most of the time that they canceled, I had already decided that I wasn't making the 190 mile round trip in iffy weather. I know you locals don't care if you drive 10 miles for nothing but there are a lot of fans that have to make a long haul. Also,some of them have to take off work early.

When the stands are empty they don't make money. Why be in business or go to the trouble of putting on a show if your not going to have a profit or loose money?

Just saw on South Jersey Racing that Bedford cancelled also. For anybody that still wants to try out their coats hats and mittens, Big Diamond is still on!

Port will be racing tomorrow. That's all that matters. And Selinsgrove too.

Ive never been there before. If I go to the races on a friday night its to the Grove because its 20 minutes closer than trail way and theres 410s involved. I was looking forward to going to the races tonight so ill give my money to trail way since The Grove cancelled.
