Due to the unfortunate hurricane conditions that will soon be affecting Florida, we must cancel the dock diving fun day we had scheduled for this weekend. We are working with the management of Dog Patch Downs to reschedule. We sincerely hope that each person reading this will be prepared and stay safe throughout the rage of Irma.
