Rest Day – Jul 4, 2018

ICA is closed today. Rest up, and enjoy this day celebrating with family and friends!

If you don’t already have plans, it’s not too late to join us for a day of outdoor fun in Bethel, PA (about 75 min from Phoenixville). We’ll be swimming, fishing, and hiking up to the coolest (actually coldest) little swimming hole on the Appalachian Trail. Most of the day we’ll be hanging at the community lodge, where there is plenty of shade, bathrooms and a kitchen. There will be a grill available, as well as a microwave and a fridge/freezer. It’s BYO – please bring food and drinks for yourself and some to share!

Plan to arrive anytime after 11:00am.  If you’re still hanging come 5:00/6:00pm we’ll move the party to our cabin where we’ll light a fire and roast some marshmallows. Overnight guests are welcome – BYO tent! Text Nikki or John for directions at 203-558-7281 or 717-572-3994.

Thank you to everyone who came out for our 31Heroes Fundraiser & 6th Anniversary party! A special thanks to the dozens of members who lent a hand to help make the event a success… from lending us coolers, tables and trash cans, to helping us set up and clean up, bringing delicious food, taking photos, entertaining the kiddos, and being helpful and gracious hosts to our visitors. You are the best, and we could never pull of this event without you!

Two other notes of gratitude:

  1. We collected nearly $1,000 in donations at the event! Combined with online donations, this brings our fundraising total to $4,441. Amazing! If you meant to give but didn’t get around to  it yet, online donations can be made through the end of August.
  2. Many thanks for the anniversary gift you gave us. We have a few ideas to put the money to good use… we’ll let you know once it’s finalized!

Schedule Notes: The gym is closed today. Rest, relax, and we’ll see you tomorrow!

Community Notes: Happy birthday Alexa!

Move status - COMPLETE!

Move status – COMPLETE!

Thank you to everyone who came out to help us move! What we thought would take 6 hours ended up taking about 1.5 – talk about manpower! We still have some clean up and organizing to do before we’re ready to start classes on Monday, so Sunday will be a rest day as previously planned. We look forward to seeing everyone on Monday for our inaugural WOD at the new gym!
