This will be an early day, but it will be about half the length of the previous show day!  It is a one show day as well, so we won’t have much down time, so be aware that we will be moving quickly and efficiently to make sure we don’t have to arrive earlier in the morning.  Please show up having eaten breakfast or bring it on the bus with you, as we won’t have a lot of time on our 1 stop between here and the show site.

If you have questions, please email me and GO WOLVES!
