Some of you that have been around for a while may remember hearing about Lauriel Luther, a local CrossFit athlete who was diagnosed with brain cancer in 2011. The first ‘Lift it/Love it’ event and the 2011 Affiliate Competition in Flagstaff were both fundraisers for her.
I met Lauriel several years ago now, when she and two friends came into our original place for some coaching, and ran into her occasionally at local CF gyms and events. Others were closer, and have done a much better job in telling her story, but I will say that she was a good person, who faced her diagnosis with grace and determination.
After a long journey, Lauriel passed away at home in Washington a few minutes ago. She was surrounded by her loved ones.

We will have a normal Saturday schedule of classes, and then give everyone time to get cleaned up (if necessary). We’ll get going around 1 pm with the potluck. Please feel free to bring anything you’d like, but we will be having a pork-themed competition.
Feel free to invite your friends! We look forward to seeing you.
What are we celebrating? Take your pick: It’s the end of the CrossFit Games Open workouts. Spring is here. It’s a Saturday. It’s PORK, people! We don’t need an excuse!
CFSW Potluck, Saturday march 29th, 1 pm until we leave.
Please feel free to bring whatever you would like to contribute, but we’re also going to have a competitive theme: pork. It’s an appetizer! It’s an entree! It’s a salad! It’s a dessert!!! Is there anything pork can’t do???
Bring your best dish, and see if anyone can bump off the Morley clan for culinary bragging rights around the gym.
Contact Ken with any questions.
There will be a potluck AND a chili competition. Please feel free to bring any non-chili related food and drink that you desire. And we can always use plates or bowls and utensils. We have about 5 gazillion plastic knives from previous social events, and a good stack of styrofoam cups here.
And there’s still time to register to compete! Let me know before the end of the day today (Friday), and we’ll get you on the list.
Here are the details for Saturday (March 8):
830 class as normal
930 Foundations class as normal
NO 1030 class.
Member’s Only 3
There will be two (2) workouts as part of this competition. One will be the CF Open Workout 14.2 (or a suitably scaled alternative), the second will be announced on Saturday.
The first workout will begin at 11 am, we should be completely wrapped up by 1 pm.
To assist with planning, we are requring pre-registration by Friday 3/7 at 12 noon. Please contact Ken, or sign up at the gym.
The workout portion of the competition is open to all CFSW members (scaled version available), so please sign up. It will be fun! CFSW Alumni and guests may be granted permission to participate, depending on numbers. Please contact Ken for more information.
We will also need help with organization and judging, so come down even if you don’t plan to compete!
Following the workouts, we will have a potluck and Chili cookoff!
If you prefer to challenge yourself more in the kitchen than in the gym, here’s your opportunity to satisfy your craving for competition! Create your best chili dish and see how it stacks up.
Maybe someone will be able to pull off the double victory Saturday??
Prefer to make a chilly dish, instead of a chili dish? Please feel free to bring anything you would like for the Potluck—it’s hard to survive on chili alone.
So, to be clear: Everyone is welcome to come and watch, cheer, eat and drink. Bring food. Or drink. Or whatever. But (this time, at least) the competition will be between the chili chefs.
