To CANCEL or cause a skid patch field for the rest of the season?

What a crap week we have had with Tuesday & Thursday both cancelled due to the weather and ground condition and then losing Saturday at Mitchell. Nothing exasperates the situation more than the abuse towards me and my missus and our teams from disgruntled idiots who want the Car Boot Sale to go ahead whatever the severe consequences! Tuesday & Thursday we received several texts and phone calls from some idiot I will call Mr Tosser enquiring why Newquay was cancelled which was blatantly obvious due the pissing drizzle which drenched all fields from MABE to Mitchell, Newquay to Lanhydrock and not forgetting Long Rock!

Louise and I travelled to all these locations to check on ground conditions and decided it was in the interest of Public Safety to cancel the Newquay Tuesday & Thursday events. But Mr Tosser was reluctant to accept our decision and sent texts demanding we update our website immediately! The majority of callers accepted our decision without question but Tosser had to go that extra mile with offensive texts so when I got home I published his mobile number on our home page after updating the information which amused some of our genuine sellers and buyers but of course not Mr Tosser!

Let's get this perfectly clear, I will never cancel just for the sake of it or because I got out of the bed the wrong side, we take our business very seriously and yes we realize in the present climate some of our customers are desperate to earn money but to ruin one of our Landlords fields just for the sake of a couple of idiots is something we are not prepared to consider no matter how offensive the disappointed nerds get! Over our 25 years we have conducted our Car Boot Sales for multi thousands of sellers and buyers but have always used PUBLIC SAFETY as the starting point of every event we organise.
To those very polite but disappointed buyers who turned up to sell at the cancelled locations we gave a £3.00 off voucher as a small compensation to attend another time or another venue, we are sorry to have cancelled but we have absolutely NO CONTROL over the weather my lovers, (not including Mr Tosser the total DH)
Enjoy your day, I am going to think about retirement, then what would happen to the greatest COMMUNITY events ever organised in the South West for MILLIONS of visits over those 25 years?
