Happy November Fringies!
By now most of you have heard the news about Tyler assuming ownership of Iron Wolf CrossFit beginning November 1st (today!). I know the CrossFit community is constantly evolving and between the communities of Fringe and Iron Wolf we have seen A LOT of change in the past 2 years. However, I feel like we’re stronger than ever, and this change is by far my favorite. I’ve always dreamed of a more unified local community and this feels like we’re one step closer. And most exciting? We’ve already have so many exciting things in the works.
Events in the Works
LADIES LIFTING NIGHT: FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 4th at 7PM // CrossFit Fringe
We like to have Ladies Lifting Nights into the schedule every few months, and with the announcement of new, bigger family we decided it was the perfect time to have another one. It’s an informal, fun night of max lifts and general goofing. Maybe the lifts for CrossFit Liftoff?
CROSSFIT INVITATIONAL WATCH PARTY: SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 20th at 4PM // IRON WOLF CROSSFIT
Our own Brooke Wells was chosen for Team USA in the CrossFit Invitational this year! The Invitational is basically CrossFit’s all-star game, with the fittest men and women in the world competing in teams! How does a fun potluck watch party sound?
BLACK FRIDAY/SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY/CYBER MONDAY: NOVEMBER 25-28 // IRON WOLF CROSSFIT
I’ve heard a lot about Iron Wolf’s creative promotion last year during the Thanksgiving holiday so tell your friends, it’s coming back this year — for both gyms. More details about the deals are coming so stay tuned! Specific times to be announced.
FACEBOOK GROUPS COMBINE: THURSDAY, DECEMBER 1
Just in time for the Holiday Party, we’re going to take the step to combine our Facebook groups into one! We will create the group with the link and when you’re ready, you can join!
OUTLIER HOLIDAY PARTY: SATURDAY, DECEMBER 3rd at 6:30PM
We’ve booked Roxy’s downtown and have an awesome night of music, food, and dancing planned. Other raffles, prizes, and giveaways are also in the works, so follow updates on the Facebook event.
WHOLE30 NUTRITION CHALLENGE: MONDAY, JANUARY 16TH AT 12:01AM
Just like you guys, we like to start the year off with a clean slate and overall attempt to reclaim our nutrition from the holidays. We have a two-option approach, a private online Facebook group, and a halfway potluck and another to close out the challenge. We award prizes to the winner(s), and hopefully continue the year on a better path.
Also in the works: Merge FAQ
We know you also have questions, and we have worked to assemble a preliminary FAQ of common questions we’re receiving and the current answers we have. We will work to keep it updated as developments continue. You can also submit questions via our Google form. We are also assembling our Annual Membership Survey to start making plans for 2017 and will have that completed December 1st.
