Lack of snow doesn’t stop winter games
PRINCETON — Snow or no snow, the 2013 District Winter Games for the Illinois Special Olympics will go on as scheduled this weekend in Princeton.
On Wednesday, Cheryl DePaepe, director for Area 16 of Illinois Special Olympics, said the opening ceremony for the District Winter Games is set for 9:45 a.m. Saturday at the Bureau County Fairgrounds, 811 W. Peru St. in Princeton. The final event of the day, a 4-by-100 relay, will begin at 1:30 p.m. Saturday.
Saturday’s games will focus on snowshoe events, DePaepe said. Because of the current lack of snow on the ground, the cross country events will need to be cancelled. DePaepe is contacting the state organization for final confirmation.
