South Brooklyn versus NorCal

It's a well known fact that CrossFit Norcal's athletes and trainer's are a bunch of chumps.  Lets prove it to them with the first of many SBK/Norcal affiliate challenges.  Our first competition will be "Jackie" on Saturday, June 20th.  Athletes will perform one round of: Row 1K, 50 Thrusters at 45lbs, and 30 pull-ups for time.  The affiliate with the lowest cumulative time wins!  More details to come.

The unstoppable NEQ Volunteer Staff

The Kettlebells that some of our athletes ordered have been delivered however they're sitting on the steps leading to the cafe.  If you got KB's then please arrange to have them brought inside or taken home. I won't be able to get to the Lyceum until later today.  Please organize on the comments section.
