The NCCGSL will observe the Anne Arundel County Recreation & Parks Thunder & Lightning Policy All activities must cease upon the first sound of thunder or sighting of lightning. All participants and spectators must abandon the fields and dugouts. Go to your vehicles. Play may be resumed 30 minutes after the thunder and lightning has stopped.
Warning to Managers, Coaches & Umpires:
Failure to observe this policy shall result in suspension from the NCCGSL for the remainder of 2012 & all of 2013
The game may not resume until the skies are lightning-free for 30 minutes from the time of the last sighting. If the storm has "passed", play may not resume if lightning appears anywhere! It is best to postpone the game if lightning continues and play is stopped for 40 minutes or more. The game resumes from the point at which it was postponed. Delay time is not deducted from your two hour time limit.
>>> A host organization's lightning policy that exceeds these minimums supersedes the NCCGSL guidelines. <<<
