A big thank you to everyone involved with the grand opening! I could not believe the support we got. The beginner heat was awesome, great to see so many new faces! A big congratulations goes out to Dave Luebke and Katherine Malnor for setting the best beginner scores at 276 and 263 respectively! With that they both earn free elements classes. Also Kortney Bavone and Seth Hendricks posted the top scores for the Rx'd division at 262 and 357! For that they each get a free month at CrossFit Beloit.
I also want to give a thank you to Lani Peterson for preping and cooking all of the food and just being an amazing coach! To the Peguine aka Peggy Thiele (my mother) and Todd Champion for cleaning the gym. To Emily Hendricks for painting the wall. Paul Saevre from CrossFit Sanctify for letting us borrow a couple of rowers/urgs and helping to coach the beginners. To all the sponsors of the event: Hendricks Commercial Properties, Thiele Heating, Terra Yard Creations, Prairie Avenue Concrete, and Paddle N Trail. To the Leukemia Lymphoma Society for the support they gave, I have not gotten the totals yet but I have a feeling we raised upwards of $1,000. I can feel it in my plums.
And thank you to everyone that came and gave support! CrossFit is an amazing commuinty and I am proud to bring it to Beloit!
