First, thank you to all the volunteers that came out to CrossFit Kingstowne today to help us unload the first truck after a truly successful Cold War!

Unfortunately due to the weather today, we had to postpone resetting the equipment and mats at CrossFit Liberation.  Tomorrow we will be resetting the mats  at 0930 at CFL.  We definitely need some help – so if anyone is free to help us unload the mats and equipment from the truck, we would greatly appreciate it.  Its a bit labor intensive with only a few people.  Since we have to reset the mats we will be need to cancel classes at CrossFit Liberation tomorrow (Monday).  All classes at CrossFit Kingstowne will run as scheduled.

Hey CFL/CFK…Another great Cold War is in the books! And so much More to come and share tomorrow. In the meantime though we need a ton of help tomorrow unloading the trucks at CFK and CFL. If you are free and can help us at CFL tomorrow at 10 am or CFK at 10 am. We have a truck at each location that needs to be unloaded. The more bodies we have the faster it will be. If we can get the gym put back together we will host open gym at CFK for an hour after. Please let us know if you can help out! We truly appreciate any help year can get.
