News/Notes:

Please remember to submit your score before 7 pm tomorrow, Monday March 24.  If you are not going to redo it then do it now while you are thinking of it.

Thank you to everyone who participated and donated in  "Workout To Wipeout Domestic Violence."  We are proud to help the Morgan Park Juniors and A New Direction (AND) on this worthy cause.  Thanks to your generous contributions  we raised $554  which will help in the counseling, support, advocacy and education of individuals and families affected by domestic abuse.  Your generosity is overwhelming and we greatly appreciate your participation and support.

Thank you Amy Wiltgen for donating your time and skills with us.

Save the Date!!!  April 12 we are going to have our CFB Grand Re-Re-Opening.  We will be open throughout the day running WODs.  We will have food, drink and maybe live music (Still working on the band.) Bring your friends and family to help us celebrate this momentous occasion and show everyone what a great space and community you helped build and create.

We are pleased to announce beginning in April we will have Amy Wiltgen on site to offer massages throughout the day.  Amy will offer "By Appointmnet" and Walk Ins after WODs.  We are excited to have Amy on board as I believe this is a service every CrossFit Box should have.  There will be more details to come as far as scheduling and pricing.

Our next On-Ramp will begin Monday April 7, 2014 at 6:45 pm.  If you have family or friends who have expressed an interest in CFB, but thought the old Box was too small, please let them know we are moved in and ready for them.

Mike Hurley has a Tough Mudder team formed for the event May 10th.  Team name is Mudhogs, password is 2014TM.  http://toughmudder.com/events/2014-chicago-il  The Tough Mudder is a 12 mile obstacle course which really challenges all participants.  It will be a great day outdoors running through corn fields and ravines.

We are proud to announce CrossFit Beverly will be holding it's first USAW Certification and seminar May 2-3.  Mark Cannella will be our coach and trainer for the weekend.  Mark is the head coach and president of the Columbus Weightlifting Club (CWLC) in Columbus, OH. He has been a part of the lifting community as a lifter, coach, administrator and official for over 20 years.  Cannella coaches Olympian Holley Mangold, a member of the 2010 World team, a former Junior World team member and has produced many other National level lifters.  As the founder and meet director of the Arnold Weightlifting Championships since 2003, Mark, has been able to establish one of the most renowned weightlifting meets in the world. The Arnold Weightlifting Championships actively draws international and top American lifters each year.

We are getting all the necessary documents and filing done to create the  Beverly Area Barbell Club.  We will be a recognized lifting club with the USAW which will allow us to compete in USAW sanctioned meets and tournaments.  This has been one of my dreams from the beginning of CrossFit Beverly but square footage has been a limiting factor.  We now have the space and resources to make this a reality.  We will have more details and training will begin after the Open.  It is not limited to just CFB athletes.  All are welcome who want to participate in Olympic lifting.

If you have been a victim of the Target credit card fraud and received a new card, and you used that card for your monthly membership draw, please see John to get an updated card on file.

As always if you have any comments, concerns or issues, please do not hesitate to address them.  We want you to be happy and have fun while you are at the Box.  Send any correspondence to chris@crossfitbeverly.com
