as much as we would love to push through with the event this saturday (oct.3), the threat of tropical storm pepeng (parma) has constrained us to POSTPONE the scrapjam. the safety of the jammers and other participants is more important to us at this point.
the expected landfall of pepeng is on sunday in Northern Luzon BUT the change in weather should be felt as early as Friday or Saturday. typhoon Ondoy (packing maximum winds of 85kph near the center and a gustiness of 100 kph) left so many of our countrymen homeless and dead.
as it approached eastern samar, pepeng was tracked with maximum sustained winds of up to 130kph near its center and a gustiness of 160kph…and it’s course has not changed.
after thorough deliberation, the organizers decided to just postpone the Jam and re-schedule it to next Saturday (OCTOBER 10).
we hope all of you understand and join us as we pray for the storm to spare our country.
please feel free to contact us for any other questions.
