with luck we will just have clouds with showers in the late afternoon.... the forecast says 40% chance.... hopefully that comes later. Looks like basically the same thing on Sunday.

I am also curious as to why cleats are not allowed on the field as well.

Its gotta have something to do with the specific type of turf...guessing its the kind that's similar to a carpet or astroturf? If this is the case then would actual 'turf cleats' with the super tiny studs be alright? Its gonna be a slippery weekend with normal shoes haha, but i'm still excited!

I'd recommend some indoor turf soccer cleats. They are extrememly turf friendly and offer a huge step up traction wise compared to flats. I play on going up one day this weekend, most likely Sunday if its not a total rain fest.

I thought it had something to maybe do with the bunkers? I am sure there is a way around whatever might be causing the issue... They have started coming out with these "Cleat Shoes" that are literally shoes that grip insanely well with no studs coming from the bottom of the shoe.

I plan on being there both days. Now if it is just a piss fest all morning then I will unfortunately have to wait... I do not want to get out in weather that could potentially ruin my gear because of hard rain.

From the looks of it, there will be less rain this weekend than anywhere near the past week... I am feeling that the mornings should be clear until at least the afternoon; we all know East TN's weather can get weird though lol.

I did a little testing on the turf today, and... the concerning part of the situation was some of the turf seemed a little thin for cleats but it should be ok. Just NO METAL SPIKES, OR DETACHABLE CLEATS. Molded or the Exalt style cleat is fine but I know this should clear up a few issues. Hopefully it holds and we won't have any problems. The weather SHOULD be ok. Like Ganja said, the weather here is tricky. So here's hoping things turn out nice. I am posting a picture of the field with most of the bunkers air up on our Facebook right now!

T-MINUS 2 DAYS.

With thinner turf, the lack of having metal spikes or anything that can be hard on the ground, should solve the problem. These rubber cleats won't wear and tear like the metal ones would! Glad we can get something with at least a little traction on!

I wish I had a FB so I could check those pics out.... anyone want to be a badass and upload them here!
