WOW is all I can say, what an amazing day. Weather was nice, competitors friendly and tough, WOD were sucky as they should be. With a total of 36 competitors from 8 boxes, 9 including ours, we really need to say Thank you to-
5 Valleys CrossFit
Main Street Fitness
Lone Peak CrossFit
Copper City CrossFit
-For taking the time to come play with us. Making this a fun way to meet new people and, hang out with those you may have already met.
Lori Keck did a kick ass job. She and Erin grabbed me by the short hairs a few short weeks ago and started making this whole thing come together. We wrote checks and picked up supplies, that is all. She rallied the troops, made the marching orders and executed the plan, Erin of course was right there and I’m not sure EXACTLY what her tasks were but I’m thinking they included fun and beer if she was helping Lori.
Paiger interfaced with MT marketing and said yes or no when I wasn’t doing it right.
Don came up with the WODs, great way to even up the field max WT and runnnnnnnning. We were on time if not ahead and the judges were able to give scores to Lori who entered them in a computer program Don wrote so that we were able to throw them up on the TV for all to see…
Lori, Erin and Amanda gathered AMAZING prizes from local companies and some internet friends.
– IF you’re looking for something and one of thee businesses have what you need, they have been GREAT to us, go spend your $$ there to show our appreciation for this support-
Tread Lightly– They always have something to help out ones running, foam rollers and ugly sticks, running shoes/ clothing to headlamps for those late trail runs. Go see Sarah, say hi for us and tell her thanks for supporting our play time.
GNC– Up in the Capitol hill mall, YES the mall is still there, go get what you need from JJ, he’s the little guy, “Bro do you even lift”…. I say this because I can run faster, I hope, he’s big!
Rivals– Go see their ever expanding selection of sports gear for basketball, football, soccer, baseball, softball, volleyball, running, swimming and general fitness equipment.
G2OH– We have all seen the funny shirts the ladies have been wearing, they didn’t hand make them all on a wine induced hobby night, I’d wage most came from here.
Harbinger humanX– We have a story here but will have to leave you hanging on it… Come chatter at us in person and we MAY give it up:) These guys came through big also, fed-ex showed up with some of their coolness. We made contact with them and will be setting up a link for affiliates pricing and group packages, they have a lots of stuffs and we already have our eye on some larger weight belts.
Towncenter Chiropractic– Doc Maddio ( played with us till golf got in the way) sent us 2 different kinds of Chiropractors to play with any one who needed/ wanted to be touched. These are the guys Paiger gets her crack fix from, so if’N you’re a crack addict and like to have some one get down deep and fix what ails ya these guys have it. If all that snap crackle and popping scares you they have other options, that’s what I mean by different kinds of docs.
Health Source– Doctor Nick was there wrapping us up with Rock Tape (Registered trade mark and all that jazz), He has many talents and the whole rock tape thing seems to be one he enjoys. This is also the guy you may have seen riding around on a unicycle, tall or short. He has also dabbled with us here at CFH.
OK these last two support us each and every time something comes up… err goes down.
B & B Market– Charlie and Steph own the place, they bring us beer, water, ice, napkins, wine, etc…. If you’re in need of something chances are they’ll have it and wine they have a good selection of wine.
Litt’l Johns– Remember last winter we had the bathroom trailer, then last spring fling we had 3 toilets and the wash stations just like this time. Those are all from Litt’l Johns, Jack Ward of Tenacity fame owns the place and keeps us from overflowing. Have an event, reunion, race where waste needs to be taken care of or a septic issue, give’M a call.
Genevieve Anderson Art teacher extraordinaire, took about a gilzilion-jigilo-watt-bites worth of digital pictures. If you see yourself and you look REALLY good it may not be all you… that camera looked spendy, thanks for all that work Gen. NOt sure if anyone noticed Chad, but he’s walking without a limp (other than the gansta) and was showing some mobility moves, big guy’g getting loose.
Dan M. made a food run picking up lunch and all sorts of forgotten items from Cost-co, plus a huge cooler and ice, salads and drinks from home. He must be a big tipper because the guy at the taco shop bought me lunch today, Thanks Dan.
Jehd brewed a bunch of beer, I think he had 4 case but only 2 made it in after the taste testing was done. Did ya notice the labels, CFH thats right, Lori even ordered CFH caps and Labels for the beer Jehd brewed up for us. Not only was he brew master but he did tear down/ set up, cleaning and judging too. boop
Nadene was parking people where they needed to be, took action pictures and I believe a video of the heats as they were happening and did the face book thing… Also just because Nadene and Wads bought the box a new BBQ, so we will HAVE to have a party to get it dirty, perhaps with a dirty words game and some booze.
There will be NO Saturday Barbells till after Laborday, while it may happen from time to time don’t count on it, keep in contact with Don, Miki and Jason. in case they’re not doing somethign more fun in the summer.
While we’re on about HBC, Helena Barbell Club, there has been chatter about those “power lifting people”, we welcome you and your kind to come pick up heavy stuff and set it down again, Tuesday and Thursday evenings and open times.
I KNOW there are some names we didn’t mention, ALL of the judges, check in crew, set up /tear down, clean up people and all you other mo-fos who put your time and energy into making this fun for all. This include foodies and even those that made cookies I didn’t get any of.
“Don’t earn your food at the box, you are not a dog dancing for treats…..”
No pictures, as Genevieve has sucked up all the digital image space in this galaxy.
” In order to be best at what you do, you had better give your best to do it.”
Thank you all-
Mark, Kier and Paige
