"Jackie" Tournament Details
Our "Jackie" competition versus CrossFit Norcal is coming up this weekend. The event is as follows:
50 Thusters, 45lbs
We're going to Rank and compare the following categories against each gym:
Top 3 men and women Rx'd
Top 3 men and women Scaled
Top 20 times overall, favoring rx'd scores over scaled
We've standardized the scaling options to a 35lb barbell and jumping pull-ups for people who cannot do the movements rx'd. Classes will run as usual with "Jackie" being the posted WOD for the day. Feel free to come in early or stay late to cheer people on. This is a deceptively tough workout and requires a Lot of stamina and endurance, those of you who took on the 1K row last Monday have a better idea of what to expect.
Do you have a "Jackie" game plan?

CFSBK Paleo(ish) Potluck Gone Local (pretty much)
Inspired by the release of Food Inc, our latest Paleo Potluck will focus on celebrating the abundant seasonal treats available to us from local sources. All are welcome!
When: Saturday, June 20th from 6:30pm onward
Where: Margie’s pad, 745 Union St. #4 (btwn 5th and 6th Aves)
-Paleo foods plus dairy and beer. This means no grains, refined sugar (honey is ok), or beans.
-All ingredients must be locally sourced. The definition of “local” is often debated; for our purposes, we will keep things a little lax and use foods grown/produced within 500 miles.
-Salt, pepper, spices and basic condiments like olive oil and vinegar are exempt, however you must note their use and, if known, their origin. Try to keep use of condiments to a minimum/from the USA or, better yet, make your own if possible!
-Be ready to share something about your offering: the recipe (unless it’s a family secret); the name of your farmer, the experience of making/procuring your food…
-If you don’t cook, there are plenty of local cheeses, beers and wines you are welcome to bring, but the same 500 miles rule still applies.
-Go to a farmers market: be adventurous and talk to your farmer. Ask what things are and how to prepare them, they’ll be happy to give you tips.
-Find out your farmer’s practices: just because it’s local, does not mean it’s grown without chemicals/pesticides.
-Use your senses: What looks and smells wonderful? Sample, sample, sample!!
-Remember there will be lots of food, so you just have to provide enough for everyone to have a taste.
-Union Square farmers market is NYC’s largest and happens all day on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday (Wed and Sat are bigger). Grand Army Plaza’s market is Saturday. You will find produce, meats/fish, cheeses, specialty handmade foods, wine, herbs and flowers.
Cheese, artisanal snacks/provisions and meat:

Brooklyn Larder (Flatbush btwn Bergen and 6th Ave)
Bierkraft (5th Ave btwn Union and Berkeley)
Stinky Brooklyn (Smith and Degraw)

The Greene Grape (Fulton and S. Portland) also sells meat and fish
Staubitz Butcher (Court St. btwn Warren and Baltic)
Marlow and Daughters Butcher (Broadway btwn Berry and Beford in Williamsburg) where Malcolm and Laurel got the most delectable steak ever ever
Bierkraft the absolute best place to find local beers

A testimonial from Brian's Dad
"Tell David that the squats have extended my career. I have been
doing 100 squats, 100 pushups and 100 situps every day or at least
every other day for the last two months. Played nine innings at
second today and then pitched the 7 inning final. First time in the
infield in over two years. My legs feel like I am 18 years old. Even
made a couple of plays in the field that were flashbacks.
i am pumped. Matt came over to throw last night. He is pumped
also. All the guys going to the father son are quality people. We
will have a great time.
Oh, yes, we won two in our over 45 league. Our infield in the first
game was ages, 61, 63, 66, and 60. Our pitcher was 57. Baseball is
