One of the facts of life when you live in Minnesota, is that there will be weather-related postponements. Schools close early, meetings and sporting events get cancelled or moved to a later date. That is the way it is. This year there has been a time or two when an event was postpones, or school let out early, due to a raging snowstorm. Within minutes of the postponement, the weather cleared, the sun came out, and everyone wondered what the big deal is. School officials usually like to err on the side of caution. No one wants to be responsible for a school bus going in the ditch - or worse. This week is no different. With ice on the roads and sidewalks, and snow threatened, schools let out on Tuesday around 1:30 p.m. And the boys sub-section game between BEA and Belle Plaine on Tuesday night, March 10, was postponed until Wedesday, March 11. BEA Activities Director Rob Norman said he knew he would hear about the postponement from local people. That is because it was postponed until Wednesday night, commonly known as church night. And to make matters worse, it is a Wednesday night during the season of Lent, meaning nearly every church has Lenten Services scheduled. Norman says it couldn't be helped, that is when the section committee decided to postpone it to. Coaches too will not be happy, because the next sub-section game is still planned to be on Thursday night. That means the teams which win on Wednesday night will turn right around and play on Thursday night. Not exactly the way coaches want it. Or players, fans and sports reporters. As far as the Register is concerned, we will have results of the state wrestling meet, results of the two BEA girls sub-section games, and results of both boys sub-section games in this week's paper. It is a fun time of year for sports fans. If we can get to the games on the slick roads.
