Default Rain, Rain, Go Away, PLEASE!!!!!

Here in the northeast US (at least) we have had an unbelievably wet June. I can't remember ever having this much rain. So far here is how my June events have played out:

June 5 - Cancelled due to low expected attendance.
June 6 - Made it through a movie before it rained later that evening.
June 12 - Made it half way through a movie, then the skies opened up on us.
June 13 - Cancelled due to rain.
June 17 - Rain date for June 13, but cancelled again due to rain.
June 19 - Cancelled due to wet ground.
June 20 - Cancelled due to rain.

Most of these are being rescheduled so that's good.

Hopefully things are turning around.

My last 2 parties (June 26th and June 27th) went through successfully. The June 26th event only made it through because the customer REALLY wanted to have it that day. It was raining when we showed up, but it stopped within a few minutes. We setup and started the movie, but 15 minutes in, it began raining again. We shut everything down, and waited about 20 minutes. The rain stopped, we resumed the movie, and the skies completely cleared. Oh, and the customer was big into fishing, and sent me home with some fresh Sea Bass (which was delicious BTW).

I, for one, am happy to see June go. I had a total of 4 events postponed due to rain (and one was postponed twice). I have a nice easy party tonight (easy setup, no popcorn) and the weather looks good (knock on wood). Hoping to take some setup pictures. I'll post them if I do.

Well, here we go again! I had an event scheduled for yesterday, but it was postponed due to rain. It's rescheduled for tomorrow, got my fingers crossed.

I posted some details about this event. I think it's another idea for marketing movie services:

Elementary School Movie Party
