UPDATE: Thanks to all who came out, armed with shovels, strength and determination, the game will go on.

“Great job everyone,” said Maroons mom Marcy Kennedy. “See you soon.”

Vernon is trying to dig out of a snow storm for game time.

The Fulton Maroons football team have a play off game up at the Greater Vernon Athletics Park at Okanagan College today at 2 p.m.

But the field is covered in snow. Therefore all able bodies are being called to come lend a hand and dig out the field in time for the game.

Bring you plastic shovels and help the kids out.

The provincial senior AA varsity football first-round playoff game is against the Samuel Roberts Tech Titans of Maple Ridge.
