News/Notes: Today is Lake Katherine's 3rd Annual "Break for the Lake 5k"  CFB is a proud sponsor of this event and we are hoping many of you will use this opportunity of active rest to hit the beautiful trails of lake Katherine for a activity outside of the Box today.  We would love to see a big CFB presence.  Registration is $25 and can be purchased on site, race starts at 8:00am rain or shine.

Tickets for the Sox game May 21 have arrived. If folks still want to join us let me know and I can get more tickets.  $40 for All you can eat/Drink 90 minutes before game through 30 min into game. $21 for just the game.  If you have paid and I have not given you your tickets, please see me or a coach to get your tickets before Thursday evening.  I am going to look into a school bus to take us as the train schedule isn't very good for us.  I will keep you posted on this, but if it does happen I will have the bus pick us up as CFB.

We are again an official home for Forged®Memorial Day Murph Challenge. Save the date Monday May 25 for our 4th annual Memorial Day Murph Challenge and BBQ. I will be including some Murph prep workouts throughout the upcoming weeks. Click here get registered, make a donation and get yourself a snazzy T-shirt which sends proceeds to the Lt. Michael Murphy Scholarship Fund.  To be sure to have your T-shirt by Murph Day, Forged is requiring all registrations be in by tomorrow, Monday May 18.  Otherwise they will not guarantee delivery by Memorial Day.  This is an open event to all our friends, family and acquaintances, so spread the word and  lets make this our biggest Murph Day yet.

The box will be CLOSED Saturday and Sunday May 30-31 as we will be hosting a USAW Weight lifting seminar and certification. We will make arrangements for a Park WOD on Saturday, but no activities Sunday at the Box.

The Granite Games Qualifier has been scheduled to begin June 17 and we are signed up as an affiliate to start a community. This is a four week in house qualifier which will act just like the Open. Based on rank you may qualify to participate in the 2015 Granite Games in St. Cloud, MN. If you do not qualify but are an active participant you will have first dibs to sign up for the Open events (teams of 2 same gender) before registration opens to the public. If you enjoyed the Open and would like to see if you can qualify for a more regional event The Granite Games is a great proving ground. For those of us who went last year we were fortunate to rub elbows with athletes like Sam Briggs, Mat Fraser, Stacie Tovar, Lauren Fisher and many other Games athletes. The event in Minnesota will be Sept 11-13, with the online qualifier beginning June 17.  Click here to register.  As of today there are only three of us signed up.  I hope more will consider performing in the qualifier.

Saturday June 13 is the Sayre Park Open. Sayre Park is one of the most historic weight lifting clubs in the US and is located just outside of Oak Park. A USAW sanctioned event for all weightlifting abilities. If you are interested in signing up as a representative of Beverly Area Barbell Club you will need to be a USAW member and select Beverly Area Barbell Club as your affiliate.  You can become a USAW member here.

As always, any comments or concerns can be addressed by emailing  We will respond within 48 hours.
