I dropped in from out of town (Scranton,Pa.) and these guys welcomed me with open arms. Great bunch of guys,  everyone was very friendly and everyone introduced themselves to me and were all very helpful. Chad, the owner, is one of the nicest guys you’ll meet. Highly recommend for beginners, out-of-towners or anyone looking to get on a good roll.
