Dear friends and friends-to-be,
I hope you all have had a wonderful summer, but it’s time to face the fact that it’s coming to an end. I know one reason everyone should be excited about the coming school year, though–UMPK training will be in full swing come September!
Personally, I’ve missed all of you veteran members dearly and I can’t wait to get to know some new members this year. So I’m very happy to spread the word about an event that will take place on campus even before classes begin! On Sunday, September 2nd, the first day of New England Parkour’s Third Annual Charity Jam will be held at UMass Amherst. Check out the facebook page or the event’s website for more details. It sounds like an awesome way to help out a good cause and get your jam on at the same time, so I hope I’ll see many of you there!
If you can’t make it to the charity jam, fear not, because UMPK practices are going to start the very next day. That’s right, the first practice of the school year will be held on Monday, September 3rd, at the usual time of 6pm. We meet right outside the main entrance to the Fine Arts Center. Whether you’ve been doing parkour since the beginning of time or you’ve never done anything remotely athletic in your entire life, we want you to come train with us!
Once the school year is underway, practice is held Monday through Thursday from 6pm to roughly 7:30pm, and we always start things off outside the FAC. So even if you can’t make it on either the 2nd or the 3rd, you can still show up on the 4th, or the 5th, or the 6th, or the week after that, or…
You get the idea. There’s no excuse not to check us out!
It’s going to be a fantastic year, my friends. Let’s start it off right!
