LAKEVILLE â€” The first time for an event can be the toughest, but the elements may have provided an even tougher obstacle to Newton Parkâ€™s Snoccer event this weekend.
â€śWe had people asking us if we knew how tough it was to kick a ball in the snow â€”Â especially when it just stopped right where you kicked it,â€ť said Irish Saunders of Hoosier Tire, one of the eventâ€™s organizers. â€śWe ended up cutting down the time for a half to 15 minutes because it was so tough, but everybody had a great time and it was a great event.â€ť
