NTC Xmas dinner for the dev/junior squad! Stevo and Robin worked tirelessly getting the big bird and other trimmings ready for all. A superb dinner and night to remember!!! Happy Holidays All.
Junior/Dev Squad is rolling through the Xmas training camp in fine form. Some monster swims with some monster performers. Camp started on Thursday Dec 18 and will finish up on the morning of Dec 24. With the unexpected snow and cold all training has been indoors. Here are some pics, including one of A-Russ riding the rollers single leg! Sweet!!
