Good work at practice so far this week!
I just wanted to remind all of our rollers that our first home tournament of the season, the La Crosse Open, is this weekend! I am so excited to see great matches and a lot of outstanding rolling on Saturday at Memorial Pool right here in La Crosse!
NOTE FOR ANY ROLLERS WHO HAVE NOT PARTICIPATED IN A TOURNAMENT IN THE PAST: The La Crosse Open is a great opportunity to roll in your first tournament! It is a tournament for all ages and experiences, while it is a fun day to meet new friends and compete in a really fun sport. This year, any rollers who are competing in their first tournament (from all La Crosse, Onalaska and La Crescent programs) have a chance at winning a super cool prize! If you’re interested, please visit uslogrolling.com or ask your logrolling teacher for details at your next class on Thursday or Friday.
