2018 Reebok CrossFit Opens will be over halfway done this weekend. Bring it on,18.3 that is.

The last Friday Night Lights will be on 23 March. We would like to celebrate 18.5/the end of the Opens, with a ‘bring a dish/share a dish’.

Just for fun, the theme (a suggestion) will be “And That’s A Wrap!” Foods of all genres will be welcome – Paleo, non-paleo, vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free ….. The one characteristic the food should share, if possible, is that it should be ‘wrapped’ ie lettuce wraps, tortilla wraps, dates-wrapped-in-bacon wraps, sweet potato fries wrapped in bacon, seaweed wrap … Not sure if you can wrap cookies in bacon? But you can wrap cookies in chocolate. We will also be providing some dishes to share from Girl Friday Cooking.

If you are taking part in the Opens, check out Wade Roth’s photos from last Friday Wade Roth Photography. Also, see Amy Jo’s photos (Amy B Photography) she posted on the T2 Members’ Discussion Page on Facebook.

(T2 members, if you are not a member of the Discussion Page, ‘friend’ another T2 member and ask them to join you to the Discussion Page.)

***********************************************
In case you hadn’t heard, T2 has opened up additional Preteens and Teens classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays. If you have or know a preteen or teen who would like to try CrossFit, contact Dana, Jax, Michelle or Anna.
