Thursday Morning Incident
Just wanted to give all of you a heads up about this so you can take what steps are necessary.
On Thursday morning, between 6:30 and 7:30 am, during a class, there were 2 vehicles parked at CrossFit NOLA, that were broken into and personal belongings were stolen. Please take care to protect your personal items at all times, whether that means bringing them into the gym, hiding them very thoroughly, or not bringing them to the gym at all. Hopefully we can avoid any further incidents keep those cars locked up tight!
Thanks, Jeff, Mollie, Liz and Brandon

CrossFit Cheaters Anonymous
Joe P. is opening The Company Burger with his partner Adam in the first half of August, he showed Jeff around on Wednesday, it is going to be pretty sweet! There is even rumor of a paleo burger...
Last year, 5 CrossFit gyms from Southern Louisiana came together and raised over $8000 for LIVESTRONG, The Wounded Warrior Project and The CrossFit Foundation! This year, we are doing it again! We will be going to Baton Rouge, on September 17th for this National Fundraiser Event, and hopefully, we will blow that $8000 out of the water! There will be a sweet workout, friendly competition, dedicated athletes, prizes, and all participants and families will receive free admittance to the USS KIDD Memorial museum... but most importantly, we will come together to show Louisiana what CrossFit is all about - it's not just a workout... it is community... it is opportunity... it is giving back! FGB6 is not about us... It's not about our gyms... It's about those heroes in our lives that have made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom... for those survivors that have been to hell and back - and know the true meaning of life! This year the charities involved are Special Operations Warrior Foundation, CrossFit Foundation, and the third charity is up to the voters/CrossFitters! To participate in FGB 6 visit http://sportsgrants.org/fgb6/ (site was down last I checked) to register and join team CrossFit NOLA. This year participants who raise $150 will receive a FGB 6 t-shirt, those who raise $500 will receive a hoodie!
