Wednesday, Dec. 22:
- Simon Rec Gym Courts CLOSED
- Simon Rec basketball courts closed for resurfacing. The courts will be "roughed/screened" and a new polyurethane finish will be applied. They will remain closed for at least another 10 days so the courts can receive the proper amount of time to cure.
- Simon Rec OPEN from 6 a.m.-12 p.m.
- Salus Fitness Center OPEN from 6am-7:30 p.m..
Simon Rec will be open for morning workouts, but will close early due to heavy fumes that occur while the polyurethane is applied to the gym courts. The Salus Fitness Center will be open the entire day to provide an alternative option for exercise.December 23, 2010:
