Tournament, events postponed

Wednesday, May 6, 2009

NEW MADRID -- Due to the dangerously high water levels and the large debris floating under the river's surface from the ice storm earlier this year, Cabela's and the New Madrid Chamber of Commerce have postponed all of the events scheduled for this weekend.

"We hate that we aren't able to host the tournament this Saturday, but we do not want to put anyone in a potentially harmful situation," said Chamber Director Christina McWaters. "And since the weather is iffy we have decided to push the craft show and other events back as well."
