Updates to Box and help from athletes


Trevor and helpers have been working diligently to provide some great updates to the box.


You will notice updates around the box that really make a big difference.  There are a couple things we'd like our athletes to help out with. 

1)  We've added individual chalk boards for you to tally your scores on.  With that update-  please don't write with chalk on the window sills or floors anymore.  Also- treat the chalkboards with care, we'd love for them to last.

2)  We've added coasters to use on the new wood shelving at the front entrance for your water bottles.  Please utilize these coasters!  Burpee penalty for no coaster!!


With everyone doing their part to keep BCF looking great, these updates will last and continue to look snazzy.  

Thank you for you help and we hope you enjoy the improvements!

Don't forget to submit your scores!


Scores for 15.3 are due by 5:00 pm today! Please don't forget to submit them on the CrossFit Games website.

Great job to all of the PR's this week!
