    Crazy story,
    My son is a firefighter and has been on a strike team that was on the idyllwild fire for 4 days and then the whole team, 4 engines, went to northern cal to the big fire, on the way they saw a dust cloud and came upon a 2 car accident, 1 fatality and 1 man air lifted. The local paramedics took 15 minutes to get there. Imagine getting in a wreck out on the 5 and having 20 firefighters there for you. Pretty crazy scene.

    Air quality looks like crap today - sky is yellow. Hopefully winds blow onshore for all the families in the tournament.

    Practices cancelled in Irvine tomorrow. Air Quality Index (AQI) shows levels are 'hazardous' apparently...

    Air quality looks better than earlier due to eastbound winds

    Central Murrieta - East of 215. When I got the alert practice was cancelled, I was traveling on the I15 going about 70 miles an hour near south Lake Elsinore having just finally got out of the Gawker Slow Down in north Lake Elsinore. There was blue sky above because the winds were blowing in a north-east direction, which is typical of the wind pattern. There was no smoke over Murrieta, let alone Menifee.

    While player safety is important, anybody with an internet connection could have easily figured out that the likelihood of the winds shifting and blowing the smoke to the south was somewhere shy of 0.0032%.

    What we have now for the next few days is a monsoonal flow coming up, which will continue to push the smoke in a north-eastern direction.

    Good MorningTeams,

    Good news, the air quality at all of our venues is in the green zone! The winds changed directions in the middle of the night and we have blue skies.

    See everyone tonight at check-in.

    As somebody who is currently evacuated (my house in Sycamore creek is fine) I was surprised when my daughter's practice was canceled in Norco. It seemed the smoke wasn't even going that way...but I understand the reasoning.

    This is nothing. Air quality is fine today. One bad day of shifted winds.

    If you are playing, good luck to your team.

    Been at OCGP all morning. The air quality is fine.

    Just very hot 90+ bring lots of water and be sure players hydrate.
