Some links and news

Busy times here at CFSW!   Many thanks to everyone who came by Saturday to help with the painting and building—it looks great!  We’ve got a couple more projects to get done over the next few weeks, so keep an eye out!

A couple of announcements:

-You may notice a few new (and familiar) faces running classes in the next few weeks.  Many of you already know Cherity, but if you haven’t had the pleasure yet, she’ll be around in the evenings a few times per week.  Later on this week, you’ll have the chance to meet Taylor.  I’ll have both of them introduce themselves a bit more soon. 

-There will be a few tweaks to the schedule in the upcoming month.  We will be moving around the Foundations classes a bit, and possibly adding another time slot or two.  Keep an eye on the schedule.  

-There have been rumblings by some people about competing in an Olympic Weightlifting meet, and coordinating a time for everyone to train together at least semi-regularly.  If anyone else is interested, please contact Ken so we can keep you in the loop.
