We have one week left to enjoy the 25+ year old subfloor with broken plywood soft spots, cracked wood supports and powdered foam blocks! Starting Friday, April 8, we're going to rip out the old floor and build a new sprung floor. The dojo will be closed on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, April 8-10.
We're still light on Friday volunteers. If cleaning under a decades old subfloor is your thing, we've got a gig for you. We'll even personalize your own N95 dust mask!
Some of you have expressed a desire to donate to the project. Thank you! You can write a check to the dojo or use Paypal from the home page on our website. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization so your donations are tax deductible.
Things we need - a couple of shop vacs, some paint rollers, trays and extension poles.
Students and Instructors - please remove all your personal items like gis and weapons by Monday night. We'll need the room to stage supplies and materials and move all the dojo furniture into the dressing rooms before we start the rip and tear. Things will get dirty.
The schedule? We have a detailed project plan. Some martial arts folks told me that a fight plan is brilliant until you get hit the first time. Please check the website for updates, particularly if you have volunteered for a late shift.
