A New, Improved Newsletter Format is Coming!

In an effort to provide you with better information in a more timely manner, we will be making some changes to the newsletter. Instead of a big .pdf every other month we will be doing more frequent, blog-like posts through the website. The majority of the club information is already being annouced in this manner, so it should be an easy transition. We will be able to link directly to outside sources and share photos from contests and photo shoots in a much more timely manner! As always, we welcome any comments and submissions at Please watch for an upcoming post of photos from our recent photo shoot with the Cedar Rapids Boxing Club.
