better pack a poncho and some mud boots. I'd take rain over 3 degrees though.

Rainy cookoffs are always best. I did about five of them last year and finished well in each. It is nice to have the Stumps with insulation when it rains.

My advice is, if they are calling for heavy rain, be sure to lay in extra beer, because you won't be walking around as much, you will want to drink more. Oh yea, you might want to pack a raincoat, umbrella and hat, of course, if you take enough beer, you wont worry about wearing a raincoat. Good luck and have fun!!!!!!!!

You may want to get some tarps and some velcro. You can make cheap sides to your popup with it. If the rain blows there is less room to get out of it.

Default rain

I second the mud boots best $15 I have spent. They stay in the trailer for when needed. Nothing better than dry feet.

FYI, if the wind comes up, the sides on the canopy can sometimes become more of a sail, so make sure you tie the thing down well. Winds do accompany the storms. My second and third comp it rained. We had a huge dust storm and high winds at my first comp. I'll take the rain. When I arrived home after my first comp. I had to have a roofer replace shingles. I was whipped plus it wasn't worth breaking my neck to replace the missing ones myself.
