Saturday's Session (Sept. 21)
. 20 September 2013 .
Please note that Saturday's session (Sept. 21st) will now only be in Gym #1 due to the volleyball tournament that will now need to run in Gym #2. As such, we will only have four courts for use on Saturday. Please keep this in mind if you decide to come tomorrow as we suspect that there will be minimal play time for everyone as a result. The next session on Wed. Sept. 25 will run as normal on 8 courts.
