Friday, December 2
One other date to let you know about - The In-House Competition will be Saturday, January 28 in the morning and yes, the Holiday Party is later that night. The In-House Comp is a great way to try a competition for the first time and test where you are as we head towards the CrossFit Open in late February. It's an individual competition for CrossFit 616 members only! More details coming soon. It's Friday! Time for the Weekly Roundup!
