The Fishing Highway 24 Outhouse Races scheduled to take place today (Feb. 19) in Lone Butte are being postponed due to the heavy snowfall.

Irene Meile, chair of the Fishing Highway Tourist Association, said they made the decision to postpone the event after assessing the conditions this morning. The region is currently under a snowfall warning. Eight to 10 inches of snow has already fallen since last night.

Meile said road conditions make travel inadvisable. A new date for the event will be posted on the association’s Facebook page.

Other Family Day events have also been affected by the heavy snowfall.

The 108 Mile Ranch Lions club has cancelled milk jug curling scheduled for tomorrow ( Feb.20). The event was set to take place on Sepa Lake in the 108 Mile Ranch.
