The unstoppable NEQ Volunteer Staff

The Kettlebells that some of our athletes ordered have been delivered however they're sitting on the steps leading to the cafe.  If you got KB's then please arrange to have them brought inside or taken home. I won't be able to get to the Lyceum until later today.  Please organize on the comments section.

A Very Special Thanks

I want to thank Nick and Charlotte for the excellent and informative 2k Rowing presentation they put together last night.  Thank you for taking time to share your knowledge and talents with the group.  We look forward to further sessions in the near future. 

This Weekend

For those playing along at home, this weekend is the Northeast Qualifier.  David is heading up to Albany this morning to put the finishing touches on what is sure to be an amazing event.  He's been working incredibly hard for months to make this happen.  It's a ginormous undertaking and we wish him safe travels and a safe, successful qualifier.  A special thanks also goes out to all the CFSBK members who are going up as volunteers.  He'll have a good team with him.  Have a great weekend guys and get out there and back safe and sound!

We've got a slew of athletes competing this weekend so stick with us for updates throughout the weekend as the results come in.  All the best to Jeremy, Sal, Charmel, Jacinto, Brandy and Juliana.  We couldn't ask for better representatives of South Brooklyn.  Knock 'em dead and have a blast. 

For those who are staying in town Level 1 and Level 2 classes will continue as scheduled.  Rejoice! 

Again, there will be NO TEASER CLASS THIS WEEKEND.  Tell your friends.  Tell your enemies.

Having Fun? Dutch Lowy
