The Flexible Dieting Seminar scheduled for today has been canceled. Riki concluded there was not enough participation by us and cancelled her trip to Chicago. We regret this as we know so many of you were looking forward to this great seminar and a new opportunity to try a new way of dialing in your nutrition.
May On-Ramp begins tomorrow, Monday May 4 at 6:30pm. What a great opportunity for you to save 20% off next month’s membership by getting a family member or friend to sign up for On-Ramp. This is the BEST opportunity to get introduced to CrossFit and CrossFit Beverly and save you some scratch.
Next Saturday is our Battle for Brayden event which will be held here at the Box. Hours are 10-3pm and we will be running our special “Brayden” WOD every hour on the hour.

All movements can be scaled to each athletes abilities. We will have an area designated for group warm up which will begin 15 minutes before scheduled heats.
May is Brain Cancer awareness month and Brayden is a very special guy to Erika as she has grown up with Brayden’s dad. With so much going on in the community the past few weeks supporting children with brain cancer, we hope you will continue your support and generosity for Brayden. We have an action packed day scheduled with raffles, silent auctions, Mini WOD raffles, as well as visits from the Evergreen Park Fire Dept, Chicago Mounted Police, and Illinois State Police SWAT Division and their Armored Truck. Admission for the event is $40 and that includes a limited edition BRAY t-shirt.
The Sox game May 21 is open to all who want/can attend. We will be sitting in right field with an all you can eat and drink special. $40 get admission to park and all you can eat/drink from 90 minutes before game to 30 minutes into the game. This is a great value to get the evening started with food and beer. If you have stated you are attending or if you want to join us, please have cash or check into CFB by the end of the week, Friday May 8 so we can secure our seats and I can have an accurate ticket count. We don’t want anyone left out.
We are again an official home for Forged®Memorial Day Murph Challenge. Save the date Monday May 25 for our 4th annual Memorial Day Murph Challenge and BBQ. I will be including some Murph prep workouts throughout the upcoming weeks. Look to the sidebar on the right for the Murph link to get registered and get yourself a snazzy T-shirt which sends proceeds to the Michael Murphy Scholarship Fund.
The box will be CLOSED Saturday and Sunday May 30-31 as we will be hosting a USAW Weight lifting seminar and certification. We will make arrangements for a Park WOD on Saturday, but no activities Sunday at the Box.
The Granite Games Qualifier has been scheduled to begin June 17 and we are signed up as an affiliate to start a community. This is a four week in house qualifier which will act just like the Open. Based on rank you may qualify to participate in the 2015 Granite Games in St. Cloud, MN. If you do not qualify but are an active participant you will have first dibs to sign up for the Open events (teams of 2 same gender) before registration opens to the public. If you enjoyed the Open and would like to see if you can qualify for a more regional event The Granite Games is a great proving ground. For those of us who went last year we were fortunate to rub elbows with athletes like Sam Briggs, Mat Fraser, Stacie Tovar, Lauren Fisher and many other Games athletes. The event in Minnesota will be Sept 11-13, with the online qualifier beginning June 17. Use promo code MYCOMMUNITY (valid through May 15, 2015) for $5 off the qualifier registrations.
Saturday June 20 is the Sayre Park Open. Sayre Park is one of the most historic weight lifting clubs in the US and is located just outside of Oak Park. A USAW sanctioned event for all weightlifting abilities. If you are interested in signing up as a representative of Beverly Area Barbell Club please see me to get your training started.
Brian and Angie have kindly invited us again to their tiki bar/pool for the second annual CFB McArdle Pool Party. The event will be Saturday June 27 and we will have more details as we gather them.
