45th Mid America Tulsa
« on: May 22, 2019, 08:30:31 PM »
Can anybody in the Tulsa area comment on recent flooding and if any affect anticipated for the meet?   This has been a very active weather year and I hope things quiet down soon as it makes one think twice about the risk bringing a car to the event.

I spoke with Jim Wicks yesterday and I was in Tulsa today, all is well so far. Much more rain and tornados tonight but no reports of damage at any of the facilities we use. Water in the Arkansas river is high but most of the city of Tulsa is protected. outlying suburbs are not so lucky. Lake Keystone dam, which is on the Arkansas river above Tulsa, is dangerously high and scheduled for an historic release of water beginning today. As of now things are ok, but if it keeps raining every day things will deteriorate quickly, but we are supposed to dry out this weekend. If all goes well most of the water will be down by the time the meet starts...John Brown

If your plans include the casino on the river at 91st, you might want to communicate with them and be ready to change your plans.

This is always the top Shelby event, it should be great fun this year too.
