Parties, throw downs and more…

September 15, 2014

I know I’m going to leave something out so grab me and tell me to fix it.

Thursday evening is another team throw down at 6:30 PM (no HBBC this Thursday Sept 18th)… The last one, few weeks ago, there were 18-20 people, there was also food, beer and fun. What will you be doing, come on by, watch, play, or just eat and drink.

This Friday we are running a Cramy WOD “ChRis and Amy”, these to are getting hitched on the 27th, so what we are doing is having a WOD to play with them at 4:30 and a card to collect some funds so they can by a toaster, electric knife or velvet Elvis poster their choice of course.

Jin is getting OLD… and Angie is throwing a party this Saturday at 4… Guess I should Clairify PM as with these 2 Vampires 4 AM could always be an option.

Last day to get your Pukies knuckle bash bump entrance forms postmarked to guarantee a shirt that fits…. Clint and Katie put on a good show and traveling to Billings is a fun group outing. The actual event is Oct 4th, we are booking rooms at either the Clock Tower or Crown Plaza.

Oct 11th, Lauren, Hot Hips Hellandhand, Jehds better half , is throwing a birthday party at their home. IF we wanted we could have an afternoon WOD there, they don’t know this yet. They have a large yard and extra room for sleeping if one is too exhausted to leave.

Finishing all sorts of projects lately.. projects that have been sitting for at least 2 years, throwing it away or finishing them, it feels awesome.

Next Thursday we are having the second of our in box throw-downs, thanks Don and Miki, we’ll have food and beer, bring some food of your own and be ready to WOD on.

Much more importantly what are we wearing, outfits people, outfits :)

 

THANK YOU ALL very much for the donations to Deputy Dunn’s family, we are sending off $450 to the Great Falls Sheriff Dept. There were a lot of Boxes throughout the state doing something to raise  $$ to send in also.

Thank you for playing with us and giving to this family.

 

Who’s in for the 5th annual Pukies Bash….Errrr, Ummmm the buddy bump, knuckle thump, whatever, October 4th, Billings.? We should have at least one meal/ night of karaoke while there.

Places to stay… We like the tall ass hotel with Starbucks in the lobby or the one across the street with Stellas, the breakfast place, in the same lot, crown plaza and clock tower respectively I think..

 

I pretty sure the 3:30 Ladies are planing our halloween party again… right ladies??

Having a great time, wish you were here.

August 25, 2014

Had a tremendous amount of participation for “pretty princess” and “little deputy” a very long WOD at 00:35+ min for most, We’ll try doing them again but solo…. as in one or the other, liked those front lunges.

I think most CF boxes in the state held a fund raiser for Deputy Dunn, I love that so many were thinking of him and his family, send them so love as they’ll need it for some time. Not sure till we mail it off on how much we raised but we had many who donated to both the Deputy James Dunn’s family and to ALS. IF you haven’t thrown some $$ in the kitty we mail off both packages Friday afternoon. Thank you all for playing along and helping out.

Jeremy called the whole box out for the ice bucket deal,… no one really cares IF you dump water/ ice over your head but it’s a funny thing to watch and a great way to get peeps to give and learn ALS.

Even IF one feels dumping water over their head is a silly thing to do… embrace you inner child and give the rest of us something to smile about, of course giving up $10 is the important part not the ice.

*Rulesish: “The deal” is to donate $$ to charity and dump water over ones head “calling out” 3 others to do the same.. if one does not do so they are suposto give $100 to ALS.

 

Tomorrow night, Thursday Aug 28, 6:30 PM there is a party/ Team throw down at the box….. Don has set this all up so thank him for the good times… see you there. (below is what I plagiarized directly from Don’s FB post)

“Team Series fun WOD this Thursday night at 630pm. All workouts should be posted by then so anyone interested in participating or spectating show up, we’ll draw straws or whatever for as many teams as we can field across the divisions(Rx/Masters/Scaled), pick a WOD and go. BYOB hangout session after with some surplus beer potentially being donated. Tried to tag everyone I know and will put something up on the board tomorrow but tag anyone who’d be interested.

Takes two men and two women to form a team and HQ is going to announce 2-5 WODs on the three dates(8/28,9/18,10/9). So far they’ve announced three for the first leg of the series:”

http://games.crossfit.com/article/second-team-series-event-announced
http://games.crossfit.com/article/third-crossfit-team-series-event-released

 

After traveling to a few campground and talking to a few who have rogered up for camping we have moved area’s….. We will be out in my stoping grounds, Canyon Creek. There is a water fall, providing there is enough water, a swimming hole, some old stamping mill sites, miles and miles of trails for Bicycles, motorcycles, ATVs, UTVs and hikers/ lounge arounders. We’ll provide more info for those who are going to make it out.

Labor day Monday Sept 1st, 2 WODs all day long… we are thinking 8:30 and 4:30 PM, start crying now IF this doesn’t work for you…. We’ve been asking for almost a month and not many seemed to care or be around?? Unless we hear about it otherwise 8:30 AM and 4:30PM.

Saturday September 6 Dirty Dash Missoula, we are the wind ninja’s, outfits we still need to figure out our outfits.

 

Thing are starting to pick up for the winter season, not sure if anyone else is noticing we are pushing a little harder to keep peeps on task… thus trying to keep us on time. YOU guys can help the Coaches a lot by listening to them when they are talking. I like the USAW guidelines for coaches, and I’m taking liberties with them and making them ours:

1) SAFETY first. Clear ones area and ensure everything that can be removed is.

2) Listen to the coach who’s WOD time it is.  (other coaches need to STFU unless asked by coach who WOD it is, Sorry Mark.)

3) When the Coach is talking you should NOT BE. (no burpee penalties yet, well maybe from Paiger who throws them out from time to time, better know everyones names too )

Summer is still kick’N

August 20, 2014

It’s mid August and still plenty of time to have fun. This coming weekend we are hosting Copper City CF, for a Traveling WOD… next month we may try 406 in GF, ya I know that we gotta drive. It’s great fun meeting and playing with others, we had planned to be at Spring Meadow State park but the WX guessers are saying it could be crappy?? so stand by and we’ll do something fun.

Later in the day Saturday we’ll be having a poll vaulting fund raiser, Chase traveled a long way and did Great took 13th in the nation… his Coaches have been VERY kind in offering to spend a 1/2 day helping us get over the bar. $50 for some world class coaching and sailing through the air like a bird.

 

Last weekends Bridger Showdown was a blast, Kelly got second in scaled, Lora and Mark each grabbed up first in masters, Super fun to watch them kicking butt… the rest of us had fun sweating and playing in a crowd.

This Friday we will be running a fundraiser for Deputy James Dunn who was killed in the line of duty last Friday, bring some $$ with you and put them in the bucket, we are giving all funds to the go fund me page set up to help the family. http://www.gofundme.com/d1kyxg  We’ve been contacted by a few other boxes wanting to participate in this so it won’t just be our 2400 SF thinking about James Dunn.

 

We’re still planning on camping Saturday Aug 30 Hellgate campground…… Boats, quads, motorcycles and campfires :)

 

Saturday Sept 6 Dirty Dash Missoula, get signed up now! we are the “wind ninjas” team captain is DeeAnn Cooney… for the Dirty Dash… it is also being called the mud mucker… same same. Sign up and come play with your friends, we also need to figure out outfits, who will plan such a thing ??

The 31 heroes WOD,  a great time to think about all the men and women that risk a hell of a lot to get their buddies out of a jam.

Courage keeps one fighting for their brothers and the brotherhood is strong.

Not forgetting Law Enforcement and Fire Fighters, they too only have one another to turn to when it’s going down.

Camping LaborDay weekend.

August 12, 2014

This Saturday, Aug 16th is the Bridger Showdown… Bozeman.

Next Saturday Aug 23 we will be meeting at Spring Meadow Lake 9AM for the free WOD, the 0730 will be at the box. Think of this as an WOD/BBQ party.

Sunday Aug 24 Painting party, bathroom and changing rooms need some color.

The following Weekend is Labor day, how about a Saturday evening campout? An overnighter plus? Thinking Hellgate campground, canyon ferry, IF we can find spaces… Planes trains and automobiles… bring one bring them all. We may even get a few boats to drag us around who knows?

Saturday Sept 6 in Missoula is the muddy mucker, we are registered under wind ninja’s, DeeAnn Cooney is Team Captain.

This is a great article.

-You can’t improve if you keep getting injured.

-don’t fail,  make mistakes. And mistakes are what drive their effort for improvement

-Crossfit is a journey based on passion they have for it. Sometimes this road is long and bumpy and it’s definitely never easy, but it’s always worthy

Cinco de Augusto….

August 5, 2014

We totally missed Cinco de Mayo… at lest I don’t remember it ?

Remember Fridays new 5:30 PM WOD with Erin.

There are activities each and every weekend this month and we are already talking about booking up more days in Sept.

This Sunday Aug 10 we are floating, the convoy of “anything that floats” will be leaving Super 1 Foods at 10 AM…. planning on hitting the water by noonish at wolf Creek bridge put in… finishing in Craig 3-4 hours later with an open invite to join us at Izzaks for chow after floating (~$20 depending on drinking habits and food choices ) . IF you don’t have a floating device, ask around to borrow one or buy one $10-20. Whalen Tire sell Truck tubes for 15. Remember munchies, drinks, sunblock, hat, sunglasses…. etc.

Saturday the 16Th is CFB showdown, held at the Bridger West location, four corners area.  I believe there will be coaches in town to hold all Saturday WODs,…. IF something changes we’ll put it up in red. Did you sign up? It isn’t too late!

Saturday the 23 is a traveling WOD day and we’ll have the 0730 at the BOX along with Helena barbell Club at 9:30…. but the thing MOST should be excited about is the 0900 WOD at Spring Meadow Lake State Park. Bring something to play in. possibly even something that may get wet??? we are planning on borrowing 2 safety crafts, one each from Angie G and Amanda, NOT sure if they know this or not yet ? Bring a friend, a cooler, beach blanket and towel….

Labor day weekend, _____________ what are we doing?  What are YOU doing? … IF everyone isn’t booked perhaps this would be a great time for a final camping trip, fun/ easy/ close?  Or it could be already booked and of no use and how about WODs on Monday, run them as usual or just have a select few as most will be traveling/ out of town/ taking the day off ?? TALK TO US PEOPLE  :)

Sept 6th is the Mud mucker, missoula… sign up as “wind Ninjas” 10 am DeeAnn Coney is the team captain I believe. Come on this is a great cause, fun event and you get do get dirty with your friends.

 

There are a few different programing options IF you are finding you need more. Cody has the Yellow binder and programs Endurance stuffs, as Don had the Orange binder and is running the competitors programing from Outlaw. We are attempting to run these as OFP… but if there is too much going on with the rest of the room you may be forced to make a decision of doing whats being run with all/ coming back in later/ moving outside or taking a day off. THANK YOU for not making the coaches kick you out, but doing it on your own :)

This one has some really good points on things that happen daily, “who’s fault is it, being right,  Trying to impress others, etc….” why do we care we know better but get caught up in the garbage anyways… let’s be better at not caring about that petty stuff but for one another.  http://goodmenproject.com/featured-content/12-stupid-things-people-cary-way-much-hesaid/
