November 4th and 5th we will be moving to the new gym located at 9831 – 45 Avenue.
Please note that classes will be cancelled on Saturday November 4.
We need your help if this is going to be a successful move. We will need volunteers for moving, and cleaning.
The moving people will work with Steve”Sir” and the cleaning people will work with Grace”Maam” in the new gym setting up and cleaning.
Please come out and help. Chris has a sign up sheet in the office.
Members: Move “To Do” List
** Please check the Lost & Found for any items that may belong to you.
** All lockers must be emptied and cleaned out.
** Remove all equipment from the walls in the locker room
Mats for Sale
We have bought new mats for the new gym so we are selling the old ones. These mats retail between $40 and $50 per mat and we are selling our used ones for $10 a mat. These mats will be available for pick-up after our move.
We started out with 130 mats and we have 60 left. They are great for the kids in the basement or anywhere. Talk to Chris in the office if you are interested.
As mentioned in the last few months’ newsletters one of our very own Martial Artists, Lonnie Ferguson, was diagnosed with Lung Cancer.
As you may have noticed by the pictures at the gym, Lonnie was awarded an Honorary Black Belt from Steve “Sir” and Mel “Sir”.
At this time however, we regret to report the passing of Lonnie. Lonnie’s family will be having a “Celebration Of Life” for him on Saturday, November 4th at 2:00pm. The Celebration will be located at Avalon Junior High School at 5425 114 St in Edmonton. Lonnie’s family has extended an open invitation to everyone to celebrate Lonnie’s life.
We would like to ask everyone to keep Lonnie and his family in your thoughts and prayers during this very difficult time.
