CrossFit WOD

Nov 25 2014


Before I get into details about the Christmas Party, I just want to say a quick few words about the weekends competition.  It has been said on Facebook (but not everyone is on the book) and I certainly don't want to carry on about it or piss in anyones pocket - but I want to make sure you all know how very thankful we are to each and every one of you for the amazing weekend.  This last weekend CrossFit Townsville "powered" the Allstar Affiliate Series here in Townsville.  What exactly does "powered" mean?  It means that our staff and dedicated clients spend many hours setting up, judging, taking door money, entering scores, enforcing standards, serving in the cafe, cleaning up, dismantling the rig... the list goes on.  On Friday afternoon, George, Bayden, Shane, Dion, Mel, Matt and his wife, Jordon, Steve, Bryce, Ellen, Gina, Lily, Dan and Rob were the helpers.  Collectively they met at Ryan and unloaded hundreds of kilograms of equipment off the truck and then assembled the rig and set up the arena.  Over the weekend, Gibbsy, Oats, Jordon, Linda, Sue M, Sue F, Joanne, Stacie, Ryan, Tim, Mish, Kim, Katie, Jane, Aniko, Lisa, Tracey and Belinda all helped out whether it be on the door, scoring, running score sheets, in the kitchen, emptying bins, refilling hand towels, getting food or drinks for our staff and entertaining our children!!!  Then on Sunday afternoon we had the incomparable George Henderson, Jesse, Baydo, Tody, Kylie, Ellen, Lily, Oats, Jordon, Bryce, Sarah and Alahna stay behind and disassemble the rig and re-pack the hundreds of kilograms of equipment back on to the truck! Thank you also to all the Judges who spend their entire weekend doing the worst job of all!!  The judge is always sorest of all - at least the athletes get a rest and stretch between WOD's.  There are too many of you to name individually - but THANK YOU ALL!!  (It's always a risk naming names that I forget someone, and I am sure there will be someone who was there helping who I haven't mentioned by name and I sincerely apologise - we are very thankful to you too!). We receive no payment for the hours put in to make this event a success and none of our staff are paid for their time either.  For us, the reward is seeing our people push themselves out of their comfort zones and compete in a competition they otherwise may not have access to if it didn't come to Townsville.  The reward is seeing one of our CFKids athletes get in and have a go at judging for the first time.  The reward is being able to walk away and say that in conjuction with Allstars, we put on a good show that will inspire people to continue to work towards their goals!  The word "community" is tossed around alot when it comes to CrossFit Boxes.  I can honestly say, I have not come across a more supportive, encouraging and loyal community!    In the end we had too many volunteers through the weekend and some ended up becoming spectators!  And since then, I have been overwhelmed with people offerring to help with the organisation of the Christmas Party which has taken a bit of a back seat (until today).  So THANK YOU to our amazing COMMUNITY who will show up and put in no matter what crazy idea we have!!  YOU are CrossFit Townsville and we love you!

Now.... Christmas party time... YEEEE HAAAA!  It is time to party like it's 1999!!  Sue B has very kindly done up an RSVP board where the Allstars board used to be (thanks Sue!).  Please write your name and number of attendee's on the board so I know how much food we need.  There is no cost for the party, we will provide dinner, drinks are available for purchase from the bar.  The venue is WILDCATZ INDOOR SPORTS, this is a giant green shed around the corner from CFTSV on Black Hawk Blvd... if you drive the mile run track you will go straight past it.  You will also need to start organising yourself into teams of 6.  We are running a round robin type competition.  There are 5 sports; dodgeball, netball, cricket, soccer and volleyball.  Each team will play each sport and somehow we will work out who is the winner (I'm working on logistics, more details on Saturday). Teams that have a "bye" may be required to referee another game.  We will have coloured bibs to wear so don't worry about co-ordinating team uniforms unless you are super keen! I am hoping we have enough kids to throw together a couple of kids teams to have a go against each other too!  Team registration is 4pm, we will kick of competition soon after.  BBQ will be at 6pm ish.  The venue is licensed until midnight.

Would love to see you all there.  Everyone is welcome to attend, including our CF Kids families. The more the merrier!!
