KAMLOOPS — Wildfire smoke that has blanketed Kamloops for more than a week has created problems for some sports teams and tournaments --- affecting outdoor practice for WolfPack soccer and Broncos football.

The Bronce home game against the Westshore Rebels on Saturday night is going ahead as scheduled at 6pm at Hillside Stadium.

Next week Kamloops Minor Baseball will play host to the Western Canada Championships with provincial teams in five age divisions set to converge on McArthur Island.

Everyone is keeping an eye to the sky.

The Western Canada Baseball Committee will make the call, and have indicated at this point that the championship will go ahead as scheduled, starting next Thursday.
