WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAU) - The annual Badger State Summer Games get underway today across the Wausau Metro.
Badger State Games director Darien Schaefer says the games are working towards the numbers they used to field in years past. "It's 29 years for the Summer Games, and we've had to adapt as well, and as an organization, we're growing and adding staff to be sure we can run a great games series." This is the 2nd year that the Central Wisconsin Sports Authority has been running the games.
On the docket this weekend is a full series of events. "Archery, bowling, clay target sports, disc golf, golf, martial arts and track and field." Schaefer says they're working to boost the number of games as more interest is shown in each particular event.
Schaefer says they're happy to have all the local sports clubs participating. "What's really great are all the local clubs that work as commissioners. They're able to benefit from having these games in our community."
