Updates on the incoming weather:

03/17/2021

Please share this information and begin to prepare. There will be bad weather coming our way.

WEATHER ALERT THURSDAY-Here's a snapshot in regards to the severe weather potential Thursday. Timing looks to be in the afternoon & evening with the greatest impacts south of the US-460 corridor where the best storm energy can be found. Be prepared not scared & have a way to get warning.

03/12/2021

A few things about tomorrow:

- Most of us bring our kids with us. This is a family/kid friendly event. If toddlers/young children being in a close proximity bothers you in the space we are working with and/or a sometimes crying baby makes you lose your concentration, this isn’t the place for you. We value cornhole, but we value our kids/family more.

- There will only be two tournaments. 1 BYOP + 1 Blind Draw.

If you value friends, family, supporting an organization that benefits YOU should you ever need to make the call for them, and having a good time — then come on — otherwise, we kindly ask that you keep the negative energy out. 😉

03/11/2021

WINTER WEATHER ALERTS-Here's a quick snapshot in regards to our Winter Storm Watch late Wednesday night into Thursday. Heaviest corridor looks to remain along the I-64 stretch into the Alleghany Highlands and Greenbrier Valley where the air will be the coldest. Further south of I-64 and US-460 it's all about the ice with significant ice accumulations likely once again across the NC/VA Piedmont and Southside.

02/14/2021

If you have need for a warm place to stay tonight with power available we have the bingo hall open and will allow entry. Please bring whatever you need with you to sleep on. We only have the space to provide but if you need please don't hesitate to use it.
