Preparations are underway for the MATRA Spring Training, to be held at Event Central, Mechanicsburg, PA.    We will be transforming the Tent Wash Bay into seating for 100 with Stage, Projector and Screen.  We have created a venue for the Breakfast and Lunch by building a raised stage off the dock doors and installing a 30×60 tent with carpet walls, lighting, heat, and double doors.  Here are pictures of the tent setup underway as of noon Sunday.
