Not sure what happened to the other VK4s. But here's the summary of Qs reported on VKSpotter.com VK4 23_on_23 VK4 20190...

Re: MAD - Sunday February 24, 2019

At this stage Doug, I believe we've all been scared off. As there was no official notification given, but consensus has resulted in redirecting my time/effort to other activities today. Also believe that to be true of the others, but they need to confirm!

Re: MAD - Sunday February 24, 2019

Howling up here on the ridge tonight... But well under gale force. Sunday still looks wet and windy. No formal confirmation of a cancellation yet... But I'm assuming its highly unlikely and a delay to March 24 could be a good option! https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190222/b642e73f3fc37854931a6fb3...

Re: MAD - Sunday February 24, 2019

With TC Oma now approaching the VK4 coast, the WX forecast has changed and by the weekend we're now looking at 60-70% chances of rain... But at this stage falls of less than 10mm!Image
