If the weather turns bad tomorrow, Feb. 24, here are the options presented to me from the District Tournament:
     Plan A – Is to go on as scheduled.  That will probably be off the table
     Plan B – A two-hour late start.  They will probably start with that tonight, and then
                    make the final decision tomorrow morning.
     Plan C – Monday afternoon at 4:00.
Mrs. Sandbulte realizes that we are going to have a conflict because if the basketball game gets moved it will be to Monday night.  She is going to wait to see what happens before she gets the ball rolling with a few options that she has.  We will try and make it work for everyone!!
