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.
