Season Beginnings

As a reminder, we will have two meetings this Wednesday. Both meetings are in our normal location which is the basement of the Bethany Congregational Church.
3:30 to 6:00 PM. VETERANS ONLY. Field Organization
6:00 to 8:00 PM. ALL Team Members. HYPER Workshop.

Veterans, if you happen to have safety glasses at home after last year’s competition season, be sure to bring them on Wednesday.

Looking forward to seeing you there!
