News/Notes: The 2016 Open is over. Congratulations to all who participated and challenged themselves. As predicted the Open workouts were challenging and you all we up to the task. We saw some pretty amazing milestones especially with the Bar Muscle Up. Your practice and perseverance is a testimonial that anything can be achieved if you want it and work for it. Great job!!! We would like to make a few acknowledgements for this year's Open. First to our two teens, Nick Adent and Reese. The Open is tough but you both were tougher. You guys showed the membership of CFB what the future looks like; and the future is bright! We are so proud of you, and on a personal note I can't express my pride in Reese for 1.participating in this year's Open, and 2. for doing all the Open workouts Rx. That is a big deal and I am incredibly proud. Our next acknowledgement is to our two Masters athletes in the 60+ category. Both Mark and Chuck showed all of us that age is just a number and came in every week looking forward to each Open workout. I think I can speak for everyone when I say you both are an inspiration and motivation for our futures. Thank you for showing us what true toughness looks like. And finally, for all our first year Open participants. You now have an Open under your belt and you have a measure for which to use next year. The Open is a great time to notice what we are good at and what we need to practice. Master the things you are good at and get good at the things which need work. Look back on this years achievement and feel proud of what you accomplished. It really was a great season. Now we move forward and train.
