Mark your calendars for the Montana Special Olympics! The YVAR Area Spring Games are right around the corner! Join Kris and I on Friday April 29th at Daylis/Wendy's Stadium as we cheer on over 300 athletes as they compete through out the day! Teams from all over our county will come together for a day of fun and activities! Mile City will also be joining in on the fun this year for the first time ever!

Around 9:15am we will kick things off with the Parade Of Athletes. Each school will take a lap around the track representing their team/school. The Montana Special Olympics Torch will also take a lap around the track with the help of The Billings Police Department. Then the games will begin!

If you have some free time Friday swing by Daylis/Wendy's Stadium and cheer on these amazing athletes as they compete in various events including Track, Cycling, MATP and soccer skills! We will wrap up the day with the awards ceremony and The Billings Police Department will also be oh hand to help pin the hundreds of ribbons won on the athletes towards the end of the day.
