Due to the dangerous air quality level in Chico, we have made the very difficult decision to cancel tomorrow's Summer Sizzler. The air quality has decreased significantly over the past few hours and we don't feel that it's right to put you in an unsafe environment. 

Because of the costs already incurred we are unable to offer refunds, but we encourage you to come to the park (Cedar Grove) in the morning to pick up your shirt and medal. We'll be there from 6:30 - 7:45 a.m.

Lastly, the first 95 people to pick up their goodies will get a super cool cinch pack!

Thank you for understanding. 

Julie & Nikki and the UTSE Crew
