Metal Detectors to be used at Walhalla vs. Pickens Game

The Oconee County Sheriff's Office in conjunction with the School District of Oconee County has made a decision to use metal detectors at Friday night's football game between Walhalla and Pickens.  This does have the potential to slow the process of entering the stadium.  Gates will open at 6:00 and fans are encouraged to arrive early.

Pocketbooks and diaper bags will be allowed but will be subject to inspection.  Book bags and other large bags will not be allowed and should be left in vehicles.

CWP holders are reminded that weapons must remain locked in a vehicle while on school property.  South Carolina law does not allow CWP holders to carry weapons on their person while on school grounds.

School and law enforcement officials want everyone to enjoy the rivalry game Friday night, but encourage fans to arrive early, be patient, and carry as little as possible into the stadium.
