For the 32nd consecutive year, Minot is hosting Special Olympians from across the state for the group's state basketball tournament.
Hundreds of kids and adults are battling it out on courts around town - with the focus on the Minot State University Dome.
That's the headquarters for the event.
Kathy Meagher of Special Olympics North Dakota says volunteers make the event happen - taking care of everything from ticket sales to answering questions from participants.
And she says the Olympians have worked hard to get to this tournament.
(Kathy Meagher, Special Olympics N.D.) "There are area competitions, district competitions, and local competitions. So this state event, our athletes have competed prior to this event and this state event is just like the state event going on in Grand Forks, North Dakota right now. Our athletes want to win, they hate to lose, they play hard, we follow the rules."
The Special Olympics State Basketball continues through tomorrow with champions crowned by about noon.
