Hopper Update

The plans for this year’s Hopper are coming together. Click the links below to find out more information on each topic. Also, we’ll be moving everything from the gym to the Beaver Club on Friday at 12:30pm. If you can lend a hand, we would be very grateful for your help.


Possible Events


Let me know if there’s any questions.

**We need coolers! If you have a large cooler (and will let us borrow it), please drop it off at the gym before Friday. Make sure your name is on it as well.

    Thanks Pat for the tips this morning,

    1. Don’t worry about the miscount Ginette… I’m so bad at counting that I want a judge with me all the time! Kinda ironic that I’m an accountant

    I told them they could have water breaks, but if they did, I would kick their bottles over when they weren’t looking. The floor was dry for the whole workout.
