We had a small snafu with the merchant account service.  If anyone's payments for services at CFSBK had not gone through yet, they should be processed within 2-3 business days.  We also now accept AMEX for anyone who would prefer to use it.

Happy Birthday, Tamson W and Xuan Mai H!

Member Reminders:
+ The coat room is NOT a changing room.  Please be courteous to the other members and use the bathrooms.
+ If you're late to class, the coach has the right to ask you to wait until the following class.  We often do a lot of prep work within the first 5-10 minutes and having someone show up late can be quite difficult to work around. Especially if you're consistently late.
+ Thank you to Snip for the new tea kettle.  If you use it please remember to drain the water out of it when you're done!  Leaving water in makes it clog up.


Note on this Thursday and Friday
We're very bummed to announce that the DOB has decided our ceilings have to be fire coded.  On Thursday and Friday Airsealis will be in house spraying the ceiling.  Classes are on as usual but will be held upstairs.
