ATTENTION ALL!! With great sadness, the Health Zone will be closed Wednesday, 18 March until an unspecified date due to the COVID-19 outbreak. MP will be closed as well, until the HZ re-opens. At home WOD’s will be the daily post. As of now, the plan will be to gather at a designated spot on Saturday mornings for a group WOD for those interested. Some other random times and places may also be posted. Please check the website daily for more information.

Tuesday there will be a group meeting at LaFortune on the north end of the golf course parking lot at 1600. Come join us for a fun time! Haha!

Wednesday MP is planning on doing a WOD at Coach Sarah’s house at 1030, and after have a firearms education and shooting class. If you are interested, contact Coach Jimmy for specifics.

Thursday we will meet at Coach Sarah’s house for MP Iron Club at 1600. Contact Coach Jimmy if you plan to attend.
