Good afternoon all,
On an awesome note the Packers came up with a win today to take us to 4-3 on the season so far. On some not so good news, if you haven't heard there was a shooting today across the street from Brookfield Square Mall. Just remember that it doesn't matter where you are anything can happen. Always make sure you are aware of your surroundings and what is going on around you.
As for classes this week, we will have our Monday and Wednesday classes in Klotche 110 at 7:45 pm. We are trying still to get Zelazo on Tuesdays and are waiting for confirmation on that. Until then we are trying to get Union space but we are limited in space we are allowed to use. I will keep you posted about any updates with class times. Check your email and the website schedule weekly about when and where classes are being held.
Lastly, we are getting into the holiday season very soon. With that we will be doing a Box of Love with Here's Line Inner City. One box of food will be delivered to a family in need in the inner city of Milwaukee to people less fortunate than us. I am not asking everyone to buy tons of food, just one or two small items. We will provide non perishable food items and $12, which will be used to buy meat and coloring or story books, for the family. If you would like to donate food please respond and let me know which of the item(s) you would like to donate. If we have enough people donate food we can always do more than one box, but again it is up to you what you want to donate.
Here is a list of what is needed for donation
1 can of yams (29 oz.)
1 box of corn muffin mix (8 oz.)
1 box of stovetop type stuffing
1 bottle of fruit juice (64 oz.)
1 can of cranberry sauce (16 oz.)
1 box of cake mix
1 can of cake frosting (16 oz.)
2 cans of corn (15 oz.)
2 cans of green beans (15 oz.)
$12 for meat and other materials
Again email me if you would like to donate and I will keep everyone updated on what is still needed. The box needs to be returned no later that November 4th. If you want to donate and cannot make it to class let me know and I can meet you at another time.
Have a great week,

Good afternoon everyone,
Hope all of you are having a great weekend. I just want to give everyone a quick update about practice this week. We have our normal Monday practice in Klotche 110 at 7:45. We also have Tuesday in Union 240 at 7:00 pm.
For Monday's class please bring your sparring gear. If you do not have gear you are still welcome to come and work on sparring drills with a partner who does have gear. This is done in a controlled environment, we are all friends and do not want anyone to get hurt. If you have never sparred or have not sparred under our rules, I will review them before we begin sparring.
