When Lightning Strikes
Please use good judgement when the weather warrants it...The RecPlex is one of the highest points in town, and with all of the 45'+ tall light poles and metal fencing, it's a very dangerous place to be caught in an electrical storm. Waiting the rain out in a dug-out is not safe. Lightning can strike up to 5 minutes before you hear thunder roaring in the vicinity. Please play it safe & get into your vehicles until the storm passes through!
Signs That The Fields Are Unsafe To Use:
- Fields have standing puddles of water
- Footing is unsure or slippery
- Ground is water logged & squishy
- Grass is easily pulled out of ground
- Lightning or Severe Weather Storms
When games are played under these conditions, it can often cause irreversible damage to the field. It takes months, sometimes years, for the field to recover. It is also unsafe, causing pulled muscles due to slips & strains.
