It’s a Sod Party!

The volleyball court got it’s first real use this month at Indian Winter. Now it’s time to finish, finish the court. Weather permitting, we’re planning on laying the sod around the court March 4th from 8:00am until late. If we get 15+ guys there we should be able to do it that day. If not, we’ve got to finish Sunday the 5th. Spending the night Saturday will be an option. The lodge will provide food for the weekend. If you can come please RSVP to Alibamu179@gmail.com by March 1 so we have enough food.

We’ll have our new service flaps that weekend. If you work 4+ hours you can buy one for $2. If you stay until Sunday you’ll be able to buy an additional flap. We hope to see many of you that weekend to finish, finish this project.
