We hope you take a moment today to reflect on the events that occurred 14 years ago. Each of us have our own personal memories of 9/11, but it was truly a day that unites us all. We are so grateful to have such an amazing and supportive community, and it is even more meaningful that so many of our athletes are first responders and military personnel who provide us the freedoms we often take for granted. We are so lucky to have all of you not just as athletes, but as friends.
THE COVE IS HEADING TO ADVENTURE PARK!
In case you missed it, Myrissa has arranged for a Cove outing to Adventure Park on Saturday October 10th at 6 PM. The price per person is going to be $26 plus tax (so $27.82) which is a 50% discount off of their regular rates. Amazing! We hope to rally a big group for some fun bonding time outside the gym (as well as drinks afterwards?!) so we hope you all can make it!
There are courses for all levels and abilities and children are welcome to join (age 5 or older). There is tons of information on the website so please check it out at FunInTheTrees.com. Please email at firstname.lastname@example.org or put your name up on the whiteboard in the gym if you want to come (along with how many guests). We can then get a final headcount, sent you waivers and bill you the appropriate amount. Here is a great video that will show you what we can expect:
THE COMPETITION IS TWO DAYS AWAY!
We are so excited to have so many of our athletes competing on Saturday. And we are certainly grateful for all of the other athletes who are volunteering to help the day run smoothly! All of the WODs have been posted (with standards) and we will review them together all on ‘game day’.
Please know that the competition STARTS at 10am. That means you need to get here early to warm yourself up, do any prep (water, bathroom, whatever) on your own before then.
Here is a flow of the events.
