Please contact Gwen for more information or if you want to rent any of our equipment.

We encourage any club to host a meet – large, small, open to just your club, or open to anyone – any time you want to. Feel free to contact any LWC board member if you have any questions about how to host a meet. We are here to help in any way we can.
