Hope Everybody had a FANTASTIC Easter Weekend. Now, it’s time to work off those Peeps with our peeps (sorry that’s a little Easter Humor there)

This week is our first round of deadlines. We need our shirt orders finished by MONDAY NIGHT, because shirt orders are going in FIRST THING Tuesday morning. If you are wanting a Regional’s sponsorship shirt, make sure your name is ON THE BOARD, AT THE GYM. I will try to post a picture of it tomorrow night for you last minute people, but we need your name, and your shirt size IMMEDIATELY. If it’s not ON THE BOARD, AT THE GYM, you will not get a shirt. Again, don’t just post in on Facebook, we will be going off the list at the GYM.

Next, if you are planning on attending Regionals, we need to know by tomorrow night. We’ve been putting off renting a place, in hopes that more people will end up signing up to go, but we’re getting more maybe’s than definitely’s. So, please sign up if you are going. We might be able to sneak a person or two in, but we need a pretty darn solid list by tomorrow night so we can start reserving rooms.

We will be setting up the CFNX Carnival soon, and more details on that will come out when we have an idea of who all can attend and when.

Now…onto what you’re all waiting for….

Note: This workout is for Debbie Rominger a member of CrossFit Initiative in Reno, NV who was diagnosed with a very aggressive form of cancer. Member of CrossFit’s in all of NV are banding together to try to raise money to try to help cover some over her medical bills. This event was brought to my attention by my niece who is a CrossFit coach in Las Vegas, NV, and I thought it would be awesome if CrossFit Nixa came together to show their support for Debbie. We don’t have to donate money, however, donating is optional and I’ve included the link in the post. If nothing else, we will get to show our support for a member of the CrossFit community going through a very rough time. 

More about this event:

“We are raising money to support a loved one within our family at CFI, Debbie Rominger. Debbie has been diagnosed with a very rare and very aggressive form of cancer. Debbie has been relentless in her support of any noble cause that crosses her path. We are still in shock.

Our hope is that each box in Northern Nevada, California, heck!… The WORLD, will participate in this virtual event. Your box can host it anytime. Just have your members register here and email their scores to Soupha@crossfitinitiative.com. Your scores will be entered and you will show up on the scoreboard. Also, if you could wear purple in support and take a group picture, and post it to the Facebook Event Page (and tag yourself), that would be rockin’! https://www.facebook.com/events/498497636928633/
We’re very hopeful that this event will spread like wildfire and Debbie will not only get much needed financial support, but that she will feel the love of the CrossFit Community! Because the creators of ABoxAbove Tournament are personal friends of Debbie, all fees will be donated back to her. Let’s support this wonderful woman in her hour of need!”

“A Dyslexic Man Walks into a Bra”

Buy In: 100 Double Unders

12-9-6
Power Snatch 135/95
After each round perform 5 Bar Muscle Ups

Ok guys, as everyone knows CFNX is going to Regionals for the second time! The team has been working really hard training for the big event, and now we need your help!

The cost to go to Regionals is extremely high, between the cost of the event itself, gas up there, lodging, and trying to feed our athletes, it’s impossible to cover the cost on our own. In order to mitigate some of the costs, we will be doing several fundraising events at the gym.

The first is the sale of Regionals Team t-shirts, the photo of which I’ve included on this post. We are going to ONLY PRINT ENOUGH TO FILL PRE-ORDERS. Once pre-orders are in, we will not be printing any more. This will be a one-run special edition shirt.

Now, for anyone that was here last year and had to deal with the frustration of trying to get the team shirts, I want to assure you, we WILL NOT have the same problems occur this year. Our goal is to take pre-order this week, order and print the shirts next week, and then have the shirts in your hands the week before Regionals. This will be primarily an in-house operation, giving us more control over the shirts.

The cost will be somewhere between 30-35 dollars, and we will let you know more soon. Sponsorship spots will be available on the back for those interested. We will release prices on those ASAP.

Please help us make this trip possible. And thank you all for your continued support! We love you and appreciate you guys.
