67b35567-42be-47d8-b3e3-1afd908d8609Extreme winter conditions may affect the travel to an MSWA event.  We will make a decision to either continue the event as planned, delay the start of the event, or postpone/cancel the event.

Our decision will not only be based on road conditions and forecasts, but also the hosting school’s snow policy.  Most times, at least 12 hour notice from the start of the event (weigh-in) will be provided.

All updates will be on our website, facebook, twitter, and e-mail blasts from registration list and our mass e-mail marketing campaign.

We want everyone to be safe while traveling to and from our events. We do not wish to put anyone’s lives in jeopardy.
