Thunder & Lightning Policy

1) Thunder and lightning necessitates that contests/practices be suspended. The occurrence of thunder and/or lightning is not subject to interpretation or discussion ‐ thunder is thunder, lightning is lightning.
2) When thunder is heard and/or when lightning is seen, the following procedures should be adhered to:
         a) Suspend play and direct participants to go to shelter, a building normally occupied by the public or if a building is unavailable, participants should go inside a vehicle with a solid metal top (e.g. bus, van, car).
         b) Do not permit people to stand under or near a tree; and have all stay away from poles, antennas, towers and underground watering systems.
         c) After thunder and/or lightning have left the area, wait 30 minutes after the last boom is heard or strike is seen before resuming play or competition.
