Is there a pitch inspection ?

It'd be nice if the club clarified this.  I've noticed a few people ask on Twitter who are travelling from further afield to no reply.  The club manages to tweet for the 50th time this week about the shirt discount though...

I am assuming, since the club have not informed us otherwise, that there is no pitch inspection and the game is not in doubt.

At least, that was my assumption until the question 'when is the pitch inspection?' was asked.

The weather in Inverness is sleety showers and cold. Not that bad to cancel the football today.

On Tuesdays postponement v Brechin it was torrential rain all day that called it off. 

There was one game I remember due at home to QOS postponed due to heavy snow/ice maybe a cup-tie not too many years ago.

I'm sure I remember coming through to Inverness around New Year to find the derby game against Ross County at Longman Stadium (as it was called then) was postponed due to a frozen pitch.

Should the absence of any reference on the club website or, for instance, on BBC Sport Scotland, not suggest that the game is on?

 

(But I know what people mean. When the weather is a bit iffy, it's always reassuring to get positive confirmation!)

That is correct. The Council, as a quid pro quo for the lease of the land, wanted the club's "best endeavours" to be made for it to be called the Longman Stadium, but the political situation at the time was such that calling it the Caledonian Stadium was a major component of getting the Caley "sceptics" on board, so that's what the name became.

He is mixing up the stadium and the Aquifer - which again is being denied and is undoubtedly one of the reasons that Tullochs have given us the structure. When we move to the Bught the Dump will become a Natural Water Park.

We drove up from Norwich for the NewYear game at Dungwall that was postponed due to the frozen pitch, stayed overnight in Aberdeen and got as far as Nairn before we heard on the radio that the game was off! It had been -11 the night before so was no great surprise but couldn't get any confirmation before we set off. I hate late call-offs, they're always a pain in the proverbial for some poor sod.

Summer football Scandanavian style needed? Shinty switched to that a few years ago. I remember going weeks between shinty matches in my playing days.

I was top notch on a shinty pitch, average on a football pitch. Plus I have always been modest. 

Me and Susan are at the Nip Inn waiting for you. Hurry up and get here. 2 Babychams for us when you're getting your special brew. :crazy:

If things don't change radically this season, maybe we will have to rename the stadium  "The Caley Park", like the good old days.

Shoot!

Maybe we will have to call out the grizzled veterans....Bobby Bolt, Pete Mackinnon, Frankie Macbeth and Jupie Mitchell.... to show us how it's done.  It's nae the Premier league nor the fancy name of the Championship but it was still a great day's outing.    Yessss!
