COVID-19 Announcement

The 4RK9s Board has decided that classes can resume under certain circumstances. The members of the class must be able to keep an appropriate distance from each other, appropriate mediation practices must be followed, and there must be instructors that feel comfortable teaching under these circumstances. That means that the 4RK9s club will begin offering classes on a reduced or altered basis for the time being. Please check the Classes page for upcoming offerings. Other classes will resume in the future as appropriate.

Please understand that we will stop these classes if circumstances change and the state requires us to do so or if our instructors do not feel they can maintain a safe environment for all involved.

We appreciate your understanding and support throughout this process.
