Become a Frozen Taco: Join the CFSBK Curlers!
Mike W. is trying to get together a group of CFSBKers to form a curling team at Prospect Park's LeFrak Center. There is a six-week "beginners" clinic from November 2 to December 20 where you learn all the ins-and-out of curling before being able to join a league. There are leagues that run from January 4 to February 7 and from February 8 to March 20. Details below:
- The beginners clinic meets weekly on Sundays at 7pm and lasts 90 minutes
- The cost of the clinic is $297 and includes an annual membership in the Grand National Curling Club (yes!)
- League play is also on Sundays at 7pm and lasts 90 minutes
- The cost of league play is $200
- Teams are co-ed
- Curling may or may not involve screaming a lot and wearing brightly colored pants.
More information can be found on the LeFrak Center's curling page.
Email Mike by next Wednesday (10/14) at 5pm if you're interested: mike.west [at] nyu.edu.
Fight Gone Bad Fundraising Updates (T-10 Days!)
Comrades! We're almost at $11,000—which is 68% of our fundraising goal for Brooklyn Community Foundation. Can we beat our goal before the deadline? That would be the CFSBK thing to do.
It's not too late to send an email to your friends and family! Rip off a version of this one below, and select, replace, or delete adjectives as you feel led. One of our members used this email last year (with almost all of the adjectives) and quickly raised over $500. Jump on it!
Dear/Salutations/Greetings/Hola/Aloha/Beloved [insert name],
As you probably know, I’m really into CrossFit. It’s helped me/I love it because _______. Every year at my gym, CrossFit South Brooklyn, we have an event called Fight Gone Bad, where we do this crazy/hard/weird/incredible/soul-crushing/soul-enhancing workout (which you can see here).
What makes the event even more cool/inspiring/sweet/meaningful is that it’s not just a competition for highest reps, but also a competition to raise money for a local organization called Brooklyn Community Foundation. BCF supports a variety of artistic, agricultural, environmental, social, and educational programs in Brooklyn, helping people of all ages.
So, why am I telling you all of this? Because I need your help! [Insert any crazy story or incentives for hitting certain fundraising markers, i.e., If you donate $XX, I will do X, Y, and/or Z.] Donate here [insert link to your page]!
I will be sure to let you know how the event goes, and probably send along a sweaty/hot/sexy/revolting photo of myself post-workout.
Sincerely/With love/Gratefully/Be well/Shalom,
AND REMEMBER TO SAY THANK YOU WHEN PEOPLE DONATE! It’s the right thing to do.
You've got 10 days left! Who's going to knock Jay-Star off the top of the individuals? Hollywood, where you at?
