Chilly temps force Reindeer Games to be postponed

The 11th annual Reindeer Games, slated for Wednesday in G.M. Tennant Stadium, have been rescheduled due to cold temperatures.

Temperatures on Wednesday are only expected to climb into the mid-40s, then dip into the mid-30s before the indoor track and field meet would have ended.

The event, which also serves as a food collection drive for Thermal Belt Outreach Ministry, has been rescheduled for January 8. It marks the second consecutive year that the event has been moved to January due to inclement weather.
