The freezing rain our area received last evening and overnight had an impact on scheduled sports events, including the annual Char-Lan Skating Club showcase in Williamstown. The event had been slated for last night, but was postponed to March 27 due to the weather.
Today, Char-Lan DHS' girls hockey team was supposed to be skating at EOSSAA in Arnprior, but that event too has been bumped, moved to tomorrow.
