ST. CLOUD -- It's St. Cloud's turn to host the Star of the North games this year and organizers are hoping to attract more than 4,000 participants.

Co-Director of the St. Cloud games Cory Bemis says it would translate to between 8,000 and 10,000 people coming to town for those two weekends in June.

Bemis says team registration opened today but individual registration doesn't open for another four weeks.

The games will be played the weekends of June 17-19 and June 24-26.
