Club Update

I got the official update today: our athletic club will be closing for good on August 31. Yes, I am angry about it. I feel that we, the members, have been lied to. However, at this late date, there is really nothing I can do to stop the closing and the sale of the property.

Of course, this is no surprise to me; I have known it was coming for about a year. Even so, it is a sad time for me. I was one of the founders of the boxing club at the Chicago Athletic Association in 1994 when another member and I brought the sport back. It's hard to believe that was 13 years ago.

I am hoping we can keep some of our guys together. I will talk to Bernard in the next day or two and see what he thinks about the situation.

Ah that's terrible. 13 years is an amazing investment into anything. I certainly admire your focus to stick with the club that long.

I'm sure there are many other trainers that would love to have a dedicated boxer like yourself in their organization.

I hope it all turns out well. Keep posting the updates!
