As I described in my previous message, since we are no longer working out at Quads we are looking for a new home for our Club.

Today, some of us worked out at Conviction Fitness at 4430 N. Western Ave.  The mats are decent and the owner says he has ordered more, so there should be plenty of space. In addition, there is lots of free parking on Western Ave and around. We will have another practice at Conviction this Tuesday from 7:30 PM to 9:00 PM. There will be a jiu-jitsu class going on at the same time, but if this becomes our permanent home they will move that class to an earlier time.

Another gym we are looking at is ValkoBJJ, which is located in the HiFi Fitness building at 820 N. Orleans St. We will have workouts there this Thursday from 7:30 PM to 9:00 PM and Sunday from 12 noon to 2 PM. There is some street parking but also a pay parking lot directly north of the building. The cost is $2.00 for 1 1/2 hours but to get this rate you MUST enter the code 3437 in the meter that dispenses the slips. They accept cash or credit cards. The gym is downstaris at the far end of the facility and there are excellent locker rooms and showers.

If anyone has any other suggestions for workout locations for the club to consider, please let me know. Otherwise we will decide between these two sites.

Peter, I have contacted all parks in the Chicago Parks Dist. that have wrestling programs and none of them can accommodate us. Our best shot was with Joe Benson at Merrimac Park who has a newer 7 section full mat but no open times to rent to us. Incidentally Merrimac was the only park I could find with "real" mats.
Mr. Benson suggested Paul Chabura, the athletic director at Grodon Tech. HS would be some one we should contact. Mr. Chabura formally ran the wrestling program for the Chicago Parks Dist. evidently.
I have one other venue I'm looking into and should hear back from them later today.
