Jump Bar Party!

Club member Lorinda McKisson organized a Jump Bar Party to strip, clean, and re-tape the club’s jump bars and weave poles.
Joining her in the effort were Felicia Wynn, Michael McKisson, Kim Jones, Cynthia Morgan, Gloria Stevens, Linda Miles, Cindy Deubler, Susan Lawrence and Rosemary Hanes.
Lorinda also did some maintenance on our wing jumps while Felicia put on her painter’s smock.  With Felicia’s painting skills, one of our mismatched bathroom cabinets no longer clashes with the décor.
Many thanks to those who came to help.  It was a huge task with 45 jump bars and 30 weave poles.  Special thanks to Mike for cleaning and re-taping of all the weave poles.
Thanks to Mike, Cindy and Felicia for helping Lorinda set up and/or clean up. It was a fun and productive day!!
