No workout on April 14

Just a reminder to everyone that we will not be holding workout tonight.  Many people are out of town or have made other plans, so we’re skipping tonight.  Have a great weekend & see you next week.

Gear and Gi Orders

From our discussion on sparring gear and gi orders at last night’s workout, please go to the Gear and Gi Order page and use the sparring gear sizing chart and let me know what sizes you need for the gear.  If you comment your sizes on that page I will post on the page when they were ordered and the price.  Also send me an e-mail for backup, but please use the page so we can assess its usefulness for tracking orders.  Thank You!

New Club Shirt Order

We are almost ready to order t-shirts and in advance I need to know the size and quantity you would like to order.  For active club members this is required.

Please send me your size and quantity and I will order and provide the final price for the shirts.  Please use $15.00 per shirt for planning purposes.  The t-shirt company states sizes are standard so order what you normally wear.

The shirt will be Navy Blue with club logo, as our current shirt, but be made in a performance material.

Please let me know by Friday’s workout so I can arrange for production and shipping.

Thank you!

Burke Centre Conservancy Fees

Dear Students and Instructors,

Don’t forget that the new session begins in May.  We want to be proactive about collecting fees and turning them into BCC.  Please bring your checkbooks or cash starting tonight and over the next couple of workouts to ensure that we have everyone’s part by the mid May.

Additionally, if you owe money for equipment then bring it tonight.
