A huge Congratulations to Errol and Steph! She said “Yes”.
Heads Up! Labour Day weekend. On Monday we will only be running classes at:
1./ Black Tusk Hike on Sunday. If we could meet at the gym to carpool around 530AM. Bring the necessities for a long hike. More info on the hike on the BFIT Days FB Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/458460927587227/

3./ Chelsea Liu (A 6AM regular) works at Fitness Town and asked me to pass along that her location in PoCo is accepting backpacks and school supplies as part of the annual Salvation Army “Backpack and School Supply Drive”.

4./ The summer competitions are wrapping up. We’ve got our own RPCFO on September 20th. There is one more of note that you might enjoy. At the moment we have a team heading to “Battle at the Ballpark”, a one day competition held at Safeco Field in Seattle. The WODs run from 8AM to 2:30PM. Followed by a ballgame (Mariners vs The A’s). If you are interested, let me (Tom) know. I have an inside guy to talk to who will arrange seating for us.
