Wright Stuff Practice Change April 2nd

Change of plans for Wright Stuff on Monday, April 2nd.  We are able to gain access to the High School Field House on Monday, April 2nd to fly.  So, our practice time will need to change to reflex that change in location.  The plan for practice will now be as follows.
4:00 – 5:00pm Building Time at Lakeshore MS.  Students will have an opportunity to finish/repair planes and make motors for flying.
5:00pm Practice will move to Grand Haven HS Field House.  Transportation of students from Lakeshore to the HS will be arranged for students who need it.
8:00pm Practice will finish at the High School.  Students will need be picked up at the Grand Haven High School Field House rather than at Lakeshore.  Michigan game starts at 9:00pm so Coach needs to be home by then : )
This practice is voluntary for any students around and interested in getting more flight time.
See you then!
