Opener success

The B-B-E Jaguars boys' basketball team had a great night in their season opener on Monday at Kerkhoven-Murdock-Sunburg. After holding a 47-18 lead at halftime, they called off most of the attack in the second half and won by a final score of 67-36. The game was competitive for the first few minutes, but after trailing 6-4 with 15:50 left, the Jaguars reeled off a 13-0 run to earn a double-digit lead that they held the rest of the way.

The night also marked the debut of the very first sports broadcast for the Bonanza Valley Voice newspaper online streaming station. After some initial technical difficulties, the Internet stream became active about 10 minutes after tip-off and ran smoothly for the remainder of the game. You can read about this new feature and find the link here: When the stream is not active, the video player will be dark and could show an error message.

Next for the Jaguars (1-0) is a trip to Morris on Tuesday this week to face the Morris Area/Chokio-Alberta Tigers at the Morris Area elementary school gymnasium. Their third game of the year is a non-conference game at Upsala on Tuesday, December 1.

It should start at 7:45 !!! We have Wi-Fi at K-M-S high school!!! This is on the Internet. The Bonanza Valley Voice newspaper's online streaming station is a success. At first a USB port failed, rendering the video converter useless to pull video from the camera to the computer after tip off. Once the computer was rebooted, it was smooth sailing for the remainder of the game.


Radio, times two!

On top of the live streaming Internet coverage of the Bonanza Valley Voice's online channel, the boys' basketball game tonight at K-M-S will be aired on 106.5 FM The Train of Norway Lake-Sunburg. Sports broadcasters Bill Dean and Don Leukam will be on hand to provide play-by-play coverage.

**Update: I just learned that two radio stations will be at K-M-S tonight, as Smooth Magic 107 FM of Glenwood with Brady Erdmann will also be in Kerkhoven. Holy cow! That's a lot of media!

Streaming continues

The Bonanza Valley Voice's live streaming on the Internet of the turkey drawings on Saturday at the Ka-De Shack was what I will call a "partial success". The video stream worked well, but the audio was not good at all.

I'm taking it to the next level by heading to the Kerkhoven-Murdock-Sunburg high school on Monday night to try live streaming the boys' basketball game. Stay tuned for details on that.

**Update: details can be found here!!!
