I hope your summer has been going great! We’ve got a lot going on the coming weeks and near future so free up those calendars!

First up we’ve got 13(!) members heading to Fargo this weekend for the 4th Dakota Games for two days of fierce competition! Having been around all of them watching them crush the workouts in preparation, I’m extremely excited to see all of them in action out on the floor! We’ve also got quite a few friends coming along to be our rowdy cheering section, so if you’re looking to get out of town for the weekend, hitch a ride to Fargo for what is sure to be a fun weekend!
