Modified Labor Day Schedule
Next Monday, September 1, 2014 (which is Labor Day, for those who don't excel at remembering the holidays where day drinking is encouraged/an imperative), we are observing a modified class schedule:
Have You Signed Up for Fight Gone Bad 2014 Yet?
The registration deadline is Monday September 1, 2014. Head over to the event page to learn more and sign up now!
Since 2008, CrossFit South Brooklyn has conducted a yearly fundraiser in the form of a workout called Fight Gone Bad. Last year, we raised over $40,000 for the Brooklyn Community Foundation (BCF), a local organization dedicated to improving the lives of people in Brooklyn by strengthening communities through local giving, grantmaking, and community service. This year, we'll be partnering with BCF again and hope to surpass last year's donation numbers. Last year we had 180 members participating and this year, we’re capping it at 200.
Call for CFSBK Artists!
Ever wonder what CFSBK would look like if it transformed into an art gallery? Well, you might have the opportunity to find out! We are considering hosting the very first CFSBK Open Gallery this fall, which would involve displaying a variety of art created by our members, right here at the gym. If you are a visual artist (even if your art is just a hobby!) and are a member at CFSBK, we want to hear from you.
In order to move forward, we must hear from at least 10-15 artists by August 31 who are willing to commit to participating. The aim of the evening is to showcase the often hidden talents of our members, bring our community together in a novel way, and perhaps be the first CrossFit gym ever to curate an art show.
The more diversity of mediums the better—painting, photography, film, collage, printmaking, design, textiles, installations, or something we haven’t heard of yet. (We have a 180'' projector that can be used for video-based art.) If you make cool shit that would look nice on our walls and want to participate, please email Kate at katharine [at] crossfitsouthbrooklyn.com by August 31. Your email MUST INCLUDE 2-3 images of pieces you would consider showing or pieces that are similar to what you would create for the show.
