Tal is headed to Israel for 3 weeks, Bon Voyage!

We've got three new larger chalk buckets.  When chalking up, try to keep your hands inside the bucket and avoid allowing excess to spill out onto the ground.  If a WOD requires more chalk stations please ask a coach to set up another bucket, don't take part of a brick out for personal use.

Glad to see the Ergs getting plenty of use.  When you're done with a rowing piece, always put the handle back towards the window as opposed to in the saddle.  This puts less stress on the machine and makes for a happy erg.

In order to conserve tape and ensure that members have their own hand protection should they rip, we're putting in a bulk order for Gymnastics Grips.  Please review the options and choose which grip you'd like to purchase.  Prices range from $2-$12 and are well worth it.  Post make and size to comments in order to reserve your pair.
