The new tentative date of the 2016 PBI is Friday-Sunday, February 26-28, pending approval by Temple University. Temple women's basketball has a game on Feb 14, so we could not use our tradional weekend. We'll finalize the date as soon as we can.
Temple University has not allowed us back into its facility, so we are moving to a space in the 4700 Wissahickon industrial complex in Germantown. As soon as this is completed, we'll add directions and a schedule to this website. We are working on the new space and will open for training on Sunday, Oct 4 at 2p.
