Craig and Steven Hogan Family Center

There is a new YMCA being built near our house called the Craig and Steven Hogan Family Center, named for Craig Hogan (a close friend of alruff's) and his brother, Steven Hogan, who died tragically in a plane accident 5 years ago. And by near our house, I mean one street over. Like 500 feet from us. I'm really excited about it. They have a web page up on the Huntsville YMCA page. There are links for donating and even naming parts of it (if you have that kinda money). Having a fitness center and a pool that close to the house will be like living in an apartment again. Here are some of the things I'm looking forward to:

Aquatic Center
Exercise, Instructional, Lap Pool
Family Water Park
Lake and Family Nature/Fitness Trail
Fitness & Wellness Center
Indoor Walking Track
Juice and Snack Bar
Climbing Wall
Racquetball Courts
Whirlpool
Saunas
Teen Game Room

Maybe if I learn how to play racquetball and get good at it, we can play sometime, bjbass.

Cool. I can't help but wonder what a "Teen Center" is.

The Weatherly Road YMCA had plans to build a skatepark, but didn't have enough funding to persue it in their initial building phase.

Well this one's right across the street from the Madison skate-park, so that'll probably benefit both places.

That's exciting. When it's done it will be so much more convenient for me than the Wellness Center.

It's nice to see something awesome named after them. I hope you get a lot of use out of it.
