Join us as we use our giant stencils, flour chalk and paint a couple blocks in the CD with a prototype to figure out the best and quickest way to get our 1.8 mile course ready for June 1st!
We’ll be working through the problems, so we know what it will actually be like to lay down a 1.8 mile course! FUN!

Know how to play four square? Are you on a jump rope team? We are looking for you!
