Rest Day

With a "100% chance" of rain after 6pm and us not being in the Lyceum this evening, we're going to have to Cancel Classes Tonight.  The Management (David) apologizes for the inconvenience.  If you talk to anyone else from class, please spread the word.

CrossFit Virtuosity and Brooklyn Boulders offer additional opportunities for training.  Members might also consider checking out the Russian Turkish Baths for some therapeutic Hot Saunas and Cold Plunges.
