#1: T-Shirts: Black and Gold t-shirts have arrived (same design). If you would like to purchase a shirt, contact MAJ Pete Young via email or stop by his office in Thayer Hall, Room TH 253 (probably best to coordinate with him first). T-shirts are $20. If you are not local and would like a shirt, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
#2: Club Membership Requirements: As we are moving towards a more structured club operation, we are constantly trying to update and improve the membership and participation requirements. We cannot stress enough how important it is to learn and master the foundation movements first, then work on consistency, and then focus on intensity. This week we will start tracking attendance at daily workouts, so make sure you sign-in as soon as you show up. This, along with our On-Ramp attendance records will help us determine who will be on the official club roster in CIS/AMS IF we are approved for hobby club status. On-Ramp is now a requirement to start participating in the Black and Gold program, so if you are interested, email us at email@example.com to sign up for the next On-Ramp session. On-Ramp sessions will now be condensed into 5 days of training, but all 5 days will be mandatory - your place of duty if you want to become a member of the club. However, there are some less-technical workouts that will be open to everyone as a way to encourage more people to check out CrossFit and learn more about our club. Each workout post on the blog site will say whether the workout is restricted to club members or open to everyone.
Regular Class: We will meet in the 3rd floor weight room of Arvin at 0530. Try to be first in the door and jog up to the weight room to claim 2-3 squat racks on the far left side of the room. We will need 1 bar for every 2 people, and we can spread out to the area around the bench press racks by the mirrors. This workout is only open to club members and those who attended the Power Clean skills clinic this past weekend. If anyone else is still waiting for the next On-Ramp session and you want to participate in this workout, introduce yourself to MAJ Macon at the beginning of class and we will see if we have enough coaches to partner you up with them to make sure you understand the Power Clean movement.
