Hey Jason, thanks very much for the review and so glad to hear you've had some great experiences at CAP and got so much out of the lessons. We highly recommend for anyone at any skill level to take a few lessons as there will always be something to build on. Our Men's and Women's skill sessions always come with a free drink at the end of the session (all part of the fun and social aspect)! Hopefully see you back in the Park soon :)
