Club Eclipse will be open for business as well, and food and beverage will be available for purchase.  And if that doesn’t convince you to come, there will also be raffle door prizes given out every 15 minutes, with prizes such as a $150 value gift basket from Swim Kids, gym memberships and personal training sessions, movie tickets, restaurant gift cards, climbing gym sessions, and much more for families and kids.
