Worlds Update by Rob Jones, Editor
I was on a plane on the runway when the word came of the horrific terrorist attacks in New York, Washington and Pittsburgh. Of course, our flight was cancelled, along with every other flight in North America.
I have since spoken with the organizers at the World Championshisp. Out of respect for the victims, the organizers have postponed the Team Relay until 8:30 am Thursday (September 13th), Mountain Time. Organizer John Dakin says that the Opening Ceremonies will continue, as scheduled, at 7:00 pm Mountain tomorrow. The tone and nature of the Ceremonies will be adjusted to reflect the circumstances.
We will provide more updates as they become available.
