Vernon is trying to dig out of a snow storm for game time.

The Fulton Maroons football team have a play off game up at the Greater Vernon Athletics Park at Okanagan College today at 2 p.m.

But the field is covered in snow. Therefore all able bodies are being called to come lend a hand and dig out the field in time for the game.

Bring you plastic shovels and help the kids out.
