With a heavy heart, we will be canceling our 2022 sunmer camps. The University has a policy that all people on campus must be vaccinated.
I can't and won't ask anyone to get a vaccination to attend my programs. We will try again next summer and hopefully the vaccine police will be disbanded.
Hope to see you all at indoor league in sept.
