Re: Rutgers Summer Practices (Open to all)

Practice will again be at Nelson on Wednesday at 830

EDIT: We will not be having practice this week as schedules aren't aligning well. I will be away next week, so as of now practice is cancelled. If JJ or someone else posts practice will be on but for now assume it is off.
