Equipment Moving Day – Back to the Lodge

Equipment Moving Day is scheduled for Sunday, August 28th from 12:30 – 4 pm.   Sign Up Genius has been posted and various time slots are available. Remember that you must participate in at least one of the two equipment moving days.  Assignments will be given to you once we have the full list of volunteers.

We are also in need of open trailers and pickup trucks to transport some of the equipment from the back door of the gym to The Lodge. Please sign up if you have a vehicle or trailer that we can use.

If you have any questions, please contact Coach Kristin or Mariellen Voit (513-675-2743or [email protected])
