There is a heavy thunder storm coming through evanston. Due to high winds and tennis ball sized hail many activities are cancelled. We have decided to cancel the first session for EEDS tonight. Please stay home. Do not go to evanston. Keep your loved ones close. Sorry that this was not able to come out until now. All the best. Tell everyone you know. Thanks. Mr. Flygt
