Congratulations, Coulee Region Logrolling community; we’re over the big winter hump and on our way towards a great summer of logrolling! In the meantime, Coulee Region logrollers are continuing to stay busy enjoying the logrolling program at the La Crosse Area YMCA and preparing for upcoming tournaments. Keep reading to learn about some fun things that happened this winter and what we’re looking forward to in the coming year!
LOGROLLING CHRISTMAS PARTY
On Thursday, December 21, the La Crosse Area Family YMCA held its third annual Christmas logrolling party! The gathering brought rollers of all ages and experiences together and served as a wonderful celebration of a successful 2017 season, the program at the Y, and, of course, great food. Thank you to the Y and those who helped to make the event happen!
Winter classes have been packed with great groups of kids and adults who absolutely love logrolling! It’s both exciting and inspiring to watch brand new faces to the sport begin to blossom into talented young athletes and friends to other rollers. Beginner/Intermediate logrolling classes in the Spring 1 Session (March 11-April 22) continue to run on Tuesdays at 6:40 pm, Thursdays at 6:40 pm, Fridays at 3:30 pm, and Saturdays at 12:00 pm. Dates and times for the Spring 2 and Summer class sessions will be available shortly.
