Supernight is back after taking a year off!  Stay up all night at Air Insanity Trampoline Park, Bowlocity and the Rochester REC Center.  We do the driving once you get to Supernight.

The biggest change you’ll notice is we will not be at the Rochester Athletic Club since they decided to stop hosting all night events like Supernight. The other big change is that we’ve been able to add Air Insanity to the lineup as well as return to Bowlocity and the Rochester Rec Center.

You should be aware of some “Up Front” changes involving waivers to attend and the schedule.  Please read through the following information carefully.

Date & Time: Friday & Saturday March 8-9, begins 10 pm Friday ends 5:45 am Saturday.  Supernight is open to High School & Middle School Students (grades 6-12). Please bring Student ID or some form of ID to Registration.

We will provide a meal (Pizza, Taco’s, Subs, Pop) late Friday night.  Concessions (You pay) will be available at most facilities.

We can accommodate 450 people at Supernight.  At any one time, Bowlocity & Air Insanity can each only hold 125 people.  How does that affect you? It means you will have at least one opportunity, if you choose to, to jump at Air Insanity and be at Bowlocity. We want everyone to have a chance to spend time at Air Insanity and Bowlocity so we need to limit your time in those places to about 70 minutes.  When your time is up we will take you back to the Rec Center. You may have a chance to get back to those places a second time but you’ll be encouraged to plan your time at Supernight by signing up for a specific time slot at Bowlocity and Air Insanity. While there is limited space for Basketball and Volleyball we’re trying to add gym space for Supernight.

Here’s a tentative look at our Supernight Schedule:

  • 10:00pm Arrive at Rec Center and be bussed to our Registration Site.  Registration is where you and your friends can sign up for time slots at Bowlocity and Air Insanity (First come, first served)

Another season of Gospel Choir is upon us! Rehearsals will start Monday night Feb 4th from 7 to 9p. There’s no need to pre-register for anything, we’ll take care of that when we see you!

The basics of what you need to know: Rehearsals on Monday nights from 7p to 9p at Hope Summit Church, 1315 SE 6th AVE In Rochester. This is the same place we have met the last few years. Enter the building from the West Parking Lot.  We will meet every Monday night in Feb, March & April, , Except for March 18th!  We will perform afternoon and evening concerts on either Sunday May 5th or Sunday May 12th. One in Rochester & the other in Stewartville.  We will decide which date by the end of February.  Students in 8th Grade thru HS Seniors are welcome!

Our rehearsal schedule includes 12 Mondays…we hope you can make them all but we realize that might not be possible with your schedules, so please come when you can. We expect you to attend at least 7 to 9 of the rehearsals. If you’re a Spring Sport participant, come early and often so it’s not a big deal when you have to miss a rehearsal or two because of games/meets.

Teen Gospel Choir is open to to students in 8th Grade thru High School Seniors from any school (Public, Private & Home) in our region. There are NO auditions to be in the group but you’d be expected to audition for Solo’s in specific songs. The only cost to be part of the group is your time and $12 for a concert T-shirt.

Mr. Nick Johnson is back as Director. He is the HS Choir Director at Stewartville, has Directed for SE MN Honors Choir and is a close, personal friend of Billy Joel!

We’re excited for another year, and we hope you are too! Actually, we hope you’re so excited that you’ll spend the next 2-3 weeks inviting your friends to join us!

If a friend says, “I’m not a good singer!” You say, “Perfect, this is the place for you!”

They say, “I can’t make every rehearsal!” You say, “This is still the place for you!”

They say “I don’t have $ for a shirt!” You say, “That’s OK, Gary will pay for it!”

They say “I won’t be able to be at the concert!” You say, “Super, come have fun with other teens and be encouraged!”

Whatever the question or concern just say “Try it for a few weeks…and then decide!”

Let me know what other questions you have! See you in a few weeks!
