The Snow Must Go On!

I've been assessing the weather and temps are scheduled to rise above freezing later this morning. We would like to go ahead and have our annual meeting but delay it until 1:00. I realize that some of our members may not be able to make it (me included-haha) but there really isn't another day to try to fit this in by the end of the year.

Please be careful as you make your way to the club.

Good evening!

I hope all of you are safe and warm. Who would have thought 1 inch would have turned into 3-4.

Due to freezing temps forecasted for tomorrow morning, we have decided to cancel morning practice. Hopefully the temps will be above freezing before noon and we can go ahead with our annual meeting. Please watch for an email tomorrow morning.

Snow Paddle 2017! I have been in touch with Coach Kalen and Coach Jim- we will go ahead with practice this afternoon from 3:30-5:30 since all area schools are dismissing early. Please come prepared to paddle in the snow! Use your own judgement as to whether or not you would like for your children to attend. Also, the annual meeting will proceed as planned at noon tomorrow. We will be watching the weather and will make a decision as to whether or not we delay the start by a couple of hours. Please check your email and Facebook for updates.
