Turkey Dinner

Another weekend is upon us. COVID-19 is still present and spreading at a high rate. The CDC is advising people who live in areas of substantial or high transmission - which includes Hardin County - to wear a mask when they're in public indoor settings, regardless of vaccination status. For those who want to venture out, we've put together a list of five things you could do this weekend. Stay healthy, and have a great weekend.

Catch some rugby

The Women's Collegiate Rugby Championship's West Regional will get underway Saturday at the rugby pitch in Iowa Falls. Four Division I teams will compete for a spot at Nationals, which is scheduled for Dec. 4-5 at Life University in Atlanta, Ga. Two matches will be played on both days, starting at 11 a.m. Top-ranked University of Northern Iowa will face 20th-ranked North Dakota in one match, and 8th-rated Bowling Green will play 11th-rated Wisconsin Eau-Claire in the other contest on Saturday. Winners and losers of those matches will play each other on Sunday. A match was recently added to the schedule. The University of Iowa will face Wayne State College. That match will take place at noon on Saturday. The Iowa Falls rugby pitch is located on Georgetown Road.

Pick up a pork chop
