Cupsaw Weekend Weather Update

Hopefully this will be the last weather change for Cupsaw Weekend. We are pushing the kid’s triathlon back to a 12:00 start. Please be at the lake for 11:00 check in. Bring down your bikes and we will make the call if we have the bike portion or just do the swim/run for safety reasons. The rest of the days schedule will follow with a slight delay.
