Thank you to everyone who donated to Workout to Wipeout Domestic Violence.  We collected $585 for A New Direction.  Your generosity will help women and children escaping domestic violence get resources they need.  

For those of you who sampled Ascent Protein Friday night and pre-ordered we will have the shipment coming in Tuesday or Wednesday.   For everyone else we ordered, extra bags to have plenty available.  
Please join us for our BBQ/Awards banquet this coming Friday March 30.  We will begin after 6pm class and go until we eat/drink everything.  We want to gather to celebrate the conclusion of The Open and award the CFB Affiliate Cup to the winners of the First Annual Intramural Open.  We shall see how 18.5 shakes out but it is looking like Team Super Sloths are going to take the Cup.   It’s not over yet though as points can still be earned with the best dish at the BBQ cook off Friday.  We are looking for BBQ dishes which meet the description of BBQ,  Brisket, Pulled Pork, Ribs, BBQ Chicken, etc.  If you would like to bring a side, app or beverage we would be happy to have it.  We will have a full bar stocked but if you have a fav beverage feel free to bring it.  
We will pull a plate from each dish entered and have a blind taste test for the best dish presented.  20 points to winning dish, 12 for escond, 7 for third. Talk it over with your teammates as 1 team could win all three if they submit great dishes.  
Current Standings through 18.4.
Team Super Sloth-1968
Team Angry Turtles-1813
Team Unicorn Fury-1780
Team Fighting Pandas-1669

Thank you to everyone who has sent Maria and I well wishes in regards to Dottie’s health.  She is out of the hospital and recovering and going through therapy at Smith Village.  She asks about everyone and is eager to get back in the Box.  Huge “Thank You’s” must go to Team Unicorn Fury (Dottie’s team) who performed 18.5 in Dottie’s honor.  

Our friends at Impact Physical Therapy/Chicago Recovery Room are running a CrossFit Games special for their Recovery Room.  Compression boots, compression sleeves, Muscle stimulation, Ice Plunge Bath, Ice/Heat packs, Kineseo Tape application and general tune-up for performance enhancement before WODs.  5 visits $75/10 visits $130 (a savings of $5/$7 per visit) Check them out here or give them a call.
We would love to get positive "Athlete Testimonials" to post on the new CFB web page. We want to share our community with the neighborhood and surrounding areas and your testimonials are so important in giving people confidence to come through our doors. If you have some free time and have good things to say about your CFB experience, please jot it down. We would love to share it. Thanks in advance.
PARENTS: Please, please keep an eye on your children if you bring them to the box.   We understand sitting in the lobby is no fun for them, but this is a safety issue. Barbells come down hard from overhead and cannot be stopped even if a child runs out onto the floor. The staff is not responsible for keeping your children in the lobby area and should not have to police them.
Also, please clean up after your children.  The coaches are not babysitters or maids for your kids.  If you bring food/drink for your children please be accountable for it before you leave.  This request is no different than asking you to put away equipment and should not fall on the staff.  We are between two restaurants and we do not want to draw rodents into our space.
