The gyms share the long edge of the basketball court.

GYM DIMENSIONS (both opened): 175ft Wide x 105ft Deep

If you plan on selling your old equipment, and using more than one table, please send me an email. The tables are expensive for us to rent, and last winter the place was crowded.

Strike does not affect fun-fly

The teacher strike at North Penn will NOT affect the fun fly scheduled for Saturday.

We are having the event as scheduled. Oh man, wait until you see the micro arena. Bring your little planes and helis. We're going to have fun!

Don't forget to bring money for food and vendors. Feel free to sell your stuff, just don't hog the tables.

With hours of 8:30am to 8:30pm, you're bound to have some fun. Pilots, please bring a $5 instead asking for change. I know this is a pain but it makes it so much easier for us.
