What sports activities & Skype Availability at Alderson?
 
What sports activities are here such as, tennis courts, softball field, etc......?

Is skype still at FPC Alderson and currently in use? If so, do I need to setup a Skype account for my mom before I go in or do we both setup the accounts once I arrive & get settled in?

They have a softball field. There are teams in the summer. Mostly people walk a lot and there is a rec center the offer zumba and other classes.

Here is what I have on Skype. It was given to me about 3 months ago. So it should be accurate. Allowed 1 hour and 25 minutes. I am not sure if that is per week or per month. Cost is $6.00 per 25 minutes. You must sign up 72 hours in advance for a Skype session. One adult allowed per session. You connect thru Corrlinks. Your contact must be on your email list. You need to have full names physical addresses, email addresses and phone numbers for each contact to give your counselor. The outside recipient receives a invite and follows it to initiate the Skype visit.
The outside recipient must have windows 7 or newer and cannot use a mac, iPad, tablet or phone.
Hope this helps

Activities also include guitar class, poured ceramics you paint, card making, crochet & knitting, crochet project (very rewarding -- make things for the poor who live nearby), weaving (loom), spin class, Pilates, basketball, volleyball, soccer, step classes, mixed aerobic/strength challenge, rope skipping, hula hoops, treadmills, exercise bikes, stepper, elliptical, yoga (several levels and types), meditation, beading. There's a single violin but getting practice time is difficult, typing, resume, weight management. Sometimes you can teach a class, too. There are card and board game tournaments and bingo from time to time. There are weekly movies shown several times over the weekend and special movie nights on the big screen at the rec. If you want good exercise, just go up and down the New Halleluia Hill a few times. You will get exercise as it's a mile down and up a mountain round trip for meals, laundry, commissary, mailroom, education, admin, etc., although they were building a new commissary up the hill when I left.

I felt even better when supervised release was finally in the rear view mirror. Congratulations on completing your bop sentence.

Hi has anyone who still has a loved one in Alderson heard about the FBI coming in and escorting the Warden and others off the compound due to a scandal?
