Skagit County Parks & Recreation (S.C.P.R.) - Rain Out Hotline
can be reached at 360-419-3390. The purpose of the Rain Out Hotline
is to provide teams with an avenue to verify whether softball
league games are on as scheduled on days when weather is affecting
County Parks & Recreation will update the Rain Out Hotline
each day by 4:30 PM if field conditions deteriorate enough by
that time so that games can not safely be played. Unless the S.C.P.R.
cancels games, teams are required to show up at their assigned
field at the designated time with the minimum number of players
needed to start the game, no matter what the weather conditions.
Still, the Rain Out Hotline provides S.C.P.R. the ability to update
at any time (i.e. any time after 4:30 PM), which can accommodate
players traveling from outlying areas (i.e. upriver, Whidbey Island,
Snohomish and Whatcom Co.)
PLAYING CONDITIONS WORSEN AFTER 4:30 PM, THE RAIN OUT HOTLINE
WILL BE UPDATED AT THAT TIME!
times field conditions are good enough after 5:00 PM or even during
the start of games until weather and field conditions warrant
a cancellation of games. Skagit County Parks & Recreation
has staff monitoring the fields during poor weather right up until
games start, which allows us to NOT cancel games right at 4:30
PM if the fields are still holding up and playable.
WILL NOT BE CANCELLED UNTIL THE FIELDS BECOME UNPLAYABLE.
With players' safety at the forefront, Skagit County Parks &
Recreation staff makes every effort on poor weather days to get
games in. With improved drainage and infield material the Skagit
Playfields are quite adept at handling Washington weather conditions,
which has saved many Rain Out days over the last several years!
