NORTHFIELD, Minn. -- For the second time this season, the Red Wing Aces game against Northfield was rained out. The teams were scheduled to meet Sunday. On May 4, the Aces and Knights were rained out after 4 1/2 innings with the score tied. That game has been rescheduled for July 3 in Red Wing. The reschedule date for Sunday's game has not been set. The Aces' next game is Tuesday as they travel to Eau Claire to play the Cavaliers. In other news, the Aces have taken over the No. 1 spot in the latest Minnesota Amateur Baseball Rankings poll.
The rumors about summer camp aren't new but they're still around: Camp programs are just for little kids. It's better to go hungry than to choke down food served in the dining hall. Campers reek like sweat and bug spray because they go without showering for days on end. As director of YMCA Camp Pepin, Clint Knox often has to set the record straight. "Just because they're at camp doesn't mean they don't shower," he says, laughing. Fine.

Despite the loss of a State Arts Board grant, local support made it possible for the Red Wing Arts Association to schedule five Central Park concerts this summer. Linda Day-Dunlap, association director, cited major contributions from the Red Wing Area Foundation and Target Corp., as well as donations or in-kind help from 10 local businesses. "We were able to do a concert series as in the past," without cutting back on quality or on the number of programs, she said.

The Minnesota State High School League has the unenviable responsibility of running our state tournaments, imposing and enforcing guidelines on high school athletes and governing all athletics taking place in this great state. While most don't discredit or covet their work, there is certainly room for improvement. And the MSHSL would better serve our state by making a few alterations. Fewer teams should make the high school football playoffs. Wisconsin already adopted this theory.
