Description

***Hurricane Florence update - Friday Sept. 14, 8:35 AM***

The current race-time forecast for Greer is mostly cloudy, 5% chance of rain, 85° with 15 mph winds. The Performance Classic will take place as scheduled. We don't expect rain and higher winds to begin until around Saturday at noon. Sometime Sunday we should experience the 30-40 mph winds and 2-3 inches of rain that has been forecasted for the Upstate.

As you know, Florence made landfall this morning at 7:15 near Wilmington, NC and there has already been catastrophic flooding on the coast. We encourage you to keep those people in your thoughts and prayers and look for opportunities to help in the days and weeks to come.
