Thursday Night Streaming of the Open Announcement at 6pm Sharp. Each week we will have a projector set up so we can view the announcement of that weeks workout and then watch the two athletes go head to head. Yoga will be held at 7p after the announcement and it will be geared towards getting your body ready for Friday’s movements. Regular WOD times on Thursday, we won’t be cancelling any class times 🙂

Teams – We are putting together the teams for the 5 weeks. Teams will be written on the board at the gym no later than Tuesday. The current nutrition challenge teams will remain as teams (Team Troy, Team Angi, Team Jamie) and we will be adding people to their teams and adding a 4th team  so each team will have 20-25 people on each team. The 4th teams is going to be headed up by Coach MINDY!! 
Each team will compete against one another for TEAM SPIRIT and PARTICIPATION. Each team member can earn 2 points per week by 1 – Attending the Friday night throwdowns and 2 – if they are in team spirit for the week (defined below). If you are in your team spirit attire during the WOD times, you will need to have the coach assign you a point. Team captains will keep track of how many of their team members participated and will get their team numbers to Mindy. 
Friday WOD’s – Every Friday we will be doing the CF Open WOD at all class times. The Throwdown will be at the 615p WOD class time and will go until everyone has competed who came to compete. We would love to see as many of you there as possible competing!!!  This event is BRING YOUR OWN CHAIR 🙂
