End of Year Cookout-August 5, 2017
CLCF Panthers held their end of year cookout at the CLCF building for the third straight year. The weather was a little cool and wet but the team and parents made the best of the day.
Parents caught up with one another and the kids played dodge ball inside and when it stopped raining long enough-basketball outside. Thank you to everyone who came.
Indoor is the next season which begins in December.
Getting Ready for XC!
On Tuesdays and Thursdays, there is an open non CLCF practice for any middle school runner interested in getting ready for the upcoming season.
There are two practices a week in August, each starting at 5pm-Tuesday, is at Meschanicut Lake near Cranston West and the other is Thursday at the Temple to Music at Roger Williams Park.
These are led by kids and supervision is the responsibility of the parents, as this is a non-CLCF practice.
