    As you may know... SoCal is going through a Firestorm right now. The past week has been tough on most of us with the air chokefull of Smoke and Ash making it hard to breath (as if it were not already hard enough :rolleyes: )

    We have major fires going on in the Los Angeles Area and in San Diego. The San Diego fires have even cuased the Monday Night Football game to be moved from San Diego to Arizona.

    Now, the San Diego Pokémon Rockes America and Los Angeles (Cosat Mesa) Dragon Prerelease events are in three weeks. If for a slim chance the fires are not under control by then (doughtfull seeing as the weather will start to cooperate with firefighters over the weekend, but you never know) anyone think the events should be postponed?

    The Prereleases shouldn't have much of a problem since it will be indoors, only highway closers will affect that event a bit.

    But maybe the Pokémon Rocks America event should since it will be outdoors at Balboa Park. At the moment Balboa Park is also being as an evacuation center. Not to mention the extremly awful air quality from the smoke and ash will keep lots of people away.

    Hopefully, and most likliy, the fires are put out or get under control by then. And hopfully not to many people will be badly affected by the fires, although many homes have burned down (over 800 from last count).

    Considering that the events are three and four weeks away, I don't think that the fires will force a postponement/cancellation. By then the fires should be contained/out, and the air quality should be back to normal, or close to it.

    Balboa Park is pretty large, and it's only the gym that's being used as a temporary evacuation center.

    As of this morning, most of the freeways that were closed yesterday have been re-opened, though schools are closed and the mayor has requested that all employers give their workers the day off, to keep the roads clear for emergency workers/vehicles.

    By the time Pokémon Rocks America rolls into town, either things will be close to normal, or back to normal (assuming one did not lose their home in the fire). I don't think there's any cause for concern about the event, nor any reason for cancellation/postponement/relocation.

    Pokemom is right by the time the Rock Across America tour comes to San Diego the fire problem should be out or contained , but if the air and ash is a problem Nintendo should move it into the Convention Center.

    Well.. Yhea, most likly everything will be OK by then (other than some minor air quality problems). It was just a thought if for some forseen reason things flare up again (no pun intended) :rolleyes:

    The air is bad, but not bad enough to stop things. If I could play B-ball in that junck no one should sweat it :cool: :D :) :lightning
