The 2016 Arizona Sun Circuit is not living up to it’s name for the start of one of the country’s premier winter circuits.  The Scottsdale, Arizona event is off to a soggy start that has delayed much of the show schedule.  Heavy rains moved into the Scottsdale area, forcing show management to revise the schedule to make best use of the facilities and allow for arenas to dry out.  The management is well prepared with two contingencies to work from depending how weather conditions pan out.  Below are the schedule updates, and to stay up to date with the latest news for the Sun Circuit, visit their official website and Facebook page.  Once the rain moves out of the area, they are predicting the sunny Arizona weather to return and a fantastic show!
