Directors,

The Winter Storm Warning remains in effect, so far 3 of the judge's flights have been cancelled, and many school districts are closing for the weekend, therefore, we are cancelling the contest at Independence this Saturday 1/23.

As discussed in my email earlier today, I am now confirming a re-schedule of that contest for the following Saturday 1/30.
Most of the groups that replied  will be attending.... 
Some have other scholastic conflicts and we understand.
If you have not confirmed if you will participate, please reply to me with a "yes" or "no" as soon as you can. On Monday, I would like to post the NEW schedule.

On that note, please stay warm, safe and have a great weekend.
