The Minneapolis Log Rolling Club began with a mission to provide competitive log rolling experiences, training, and competition for experienced log rollers in the Twin Cities.  Our focus is on developing skills for those who already know the beginner basics.  While we have offered demos and one-time classes for beginners, at this time, we don't offer on-going formal introductory classes for beginner log rollers. However, there are many beginning log rolling classes offered in the area at community centers, parks, schools, and YMCAs and YWCAs.  Here are a few:
