March and Beyond - Updated March 13th!

the end of the quarter has arrived at WWU, and we just want to let you know about our upcoming plans!
Our regular practices continue to be on Mondays from 5:30 to 7:30 in the MPR at WWU, and we will continue to meet there in Spring quarter. We WILL meet there to have class on Monday the 12th (the Monday of Finals week) but not the 19th and likely not on the 26th, because WWU will be closed. We still plan to train, just be in touch about the location.

-Saturday March 17th: We'll go to train in Vancouver! we're carpooling, leaving at 8am and returning in the late afternoon.

Our friends in Vancouver are planning a special schedule this Saturday:
12 - 12:45pm: music
12:45 - 2:15pm: movement
2:15 - 3:15pm: roda

A potluck will follow, we can either stay in the room or migrate to space with daylight (or even outside at the beach if it's nice out) you guys don't need to bring anything, but we hope you have time to join us!

-Sunday, March 18th: we'll find a place to practice music at 12:30, location TBD (the old foundry?)
