    GREAT job to Tony, Julie, CFW for organizing what will be a wonderful event this weekend. It's heartwarming to see the community step forward to help others.

    Thank you everyone, the only reason I have achieved things like this is because of the support and encouragement from my CFW family. Joining crossfit is the best decision I have made since going back to school and is the thing I look forward to the most everyday. Hopefully I will see you all this saturday, but it just happens to be the first Rugby match of this season. Im hoping it will be at 11, that way I can come at about 1:30 and maybe bring some hooligans along with me from the pitch.

    WPD's PR and spokesperson is supposed to contact the media but I'm not sure she's done it. Anyone with contacts feel free to let them know! If you can get them to come out before this week and let us chat it up, that would the best possible.

  8. Ju says:

    Thank you Kent. Chris 98.3 will be there, but we have not gotten in touch with the media. Aaron mention a contact that he might have. So if you have any, it would help.

    Pullups AND Handguns! Count me IN! Tony, do you have a schedule of the events set yet, and if so, will you post it, or is it a play it by ear sort of deal? There's a strong possibility I will postpone our MURPH at UNCW and get some WOD time in with you all, depending on your schedule. Looking forward to it.
