Ray Kellar announced today that "due to the unpredictability of the smoke," Friday night's scheduled season-opening football game between the McCloud Loggers and Dunsmuir Tigers has been cancelled.

"We hope that weather and skies clear for next week," Kellar wrote in an email.

The Tigers are scheduled to host Weed next Friday, Aug. 31, at 6 p.m., while the Loggers are scheduled to play an afternoon game at Mercy in Red Bluff on Saturday, Sept. 1, starting at 1 p.m.
