February Update

Trav and Marc on set for Knights of Bostonia

As many of you know, we have started to increase the amount of training days for parkour. We now practice four days a week with a weekend jam happening almost every week. Currently we train on Mondays and Wednesdays from 5:00-6:00pm also we have kept the Tuesday and Thursday practices from 7:00-8:30pm.

If you would like to attend the weekend jams, they are posted on our facebook and all members will be invited. If you would like to be one of those invited members please like our facebook page. Also, we will no longer be using the google groups.

Finally, two of our members were recently featured in a State Radio music video doing some parkour and freerunning. Travis Swain and Marc Freccero show off their moves in the last thirty seconds of the Knights of Bostonia Music Video. So check it out and train hard!
