WTF - over.

If i wanted to know who can't make it, i would have written "We'll be riding tomorrow, please post up if you can't make it."

But i didn't write that. I asked who could make it. The way i phrased it implies that if you can't make it, all you have to do is - do nothing.

You don't have to post that you can't make it. If you don't post anything, i'll assume that you can't make it. You'd only need to respond if you could make it. If you could make it, then, and only then, would you need to respond.

Is that clear enough, you FF's ?

There probably wouldn't be enough refreshments then. Maybe we need to put the percentage of probability of not showing up, just in case. I'm 91% out.

Maybe we all need to post the % chance we will show up... then Bruno can take the average and multiply that times the % chance of rain to know what the % chance of fun during the ride will be.
