Changes to RainedOut Athletic Field Notification App

RainedOut is the third party app used by New Hanover County Parks & Gardens to notify subscribers of athletic field closures, and Echo Farms tennis court closures.  Subscribers may choose to receive notifications by email or text message.  Previously, receiving emails and texts were free for subscribers.  Email notifications will continue to be free of charge.  Due to increasing fees charged by cell phone carriers, as of January 7, 2020, RainedOut will charge subscribers $7.30/year to receive text notifications.

If you want to continue to receive text messages from RainedOut, the app will send you notification by text of the need to pay, and you can pay from your phone.  The $7.30/year fee will allow you to receive unlimited text messages from unlimited organizations using RainedOut.

If you choose not to continue receiving text messages from RainedOut, go to and click “Support.” Here you can unsubscribe from text messages, and subscribe to receive free emails.  If you want to completely cancel your subscription, simply reply “STOP” to the next text message you receive.
