Practice & Potluck in the Park

Join us for a pleasant afternoon at Tyson Pimmit Park In Falls Church VA on Sunday, June 25th, from 12-4pm. Ponte Alto will have a day shade up. Bring your gear, family, lunch, crafty stuff, music, or just your wonderful self! We'll follow the day in the park with the monthly Business meeting across Rt. 7 at St. Paul's Lutheran Church.

Note: The library is closed, Restrooms will still be available in the Sunnoco Gas Station and at Trader Joe's and the Coffee Shop on the other side of the Peach Tree of McClean Appartments

Heavy Weapons Practice

The Tysons Pimmit Regional Library is closed for renovation and therefore on-site bathrooms will not be available. Bathrooms nearby at Pete's Coffee Shoppe and Trader Joe's will be available.

Note also that although the library and just over half the parking lot are now closed off by fencing during the construction, the outer ring of the parking lot is still open for park users. The far end of the outer ring, which is nearest the park, is about 15 feet from the walkway down to our usual fight practice site in the park. Fighters may also park along the edge of the park across from the Peach Tree Garden Apartments. Please take care to leave a few empty spaces for the residents on that side of the Garden Apartments parking area.

Change in Location for Thursday Heavy Weapons Practice

The Ponte Alto Thursday night heavy weapons fight practice is moving back indoors.

As in the past, practice will be held in the cafeteria in the Lemon Road Elementary School located on Idlywood Road six blocks north of its intersection with Route 7 near I-66 in Falls Church from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM. For detailed directions, see the Event Calendar section of the Ponte Alto Baronial Website starting with September 10. The cafeteria is on the right just past the school's main entrance and lobby. Parking is out front or on the right side of the school, with access from there to the back door leading directly into the cafeteria.
