“To be a warrior
is not a simple matter of wishing to be one. It is rather an endless
struggle that will go on to the very last moment of our lives. Nobody
is born a warrior
, in exactly the same way that nobody is born an average man. We make ourselves into one or the other.”
-Carlos Castaneda

Remember that we are starting at 11am and running through the 12pm class.  There is no 10am or Teaser today. Enjoy the Storm.

JacintoStorm 2009
The Storm will kick off at 11am tomorrow.  We're going to run it like one large class and have it spill over the 12pm class.  There will be no Teaser or 10am class so that we can set up the space and focus our attention on Jacinto's Birthday WOD.  Try to get there at 11 for the group warm-up and heat assignments, if you get there a little late please warm-up on your own and see us about placement. It's going to be a great day!

SBK on the Farm
As many of you know, there's been talk of a trip to Grazin' Angus Acres in Ghent, New York. Farmer Dan at Grazin' Angus is excited to have the help and has offered us a chance to pitch some tents, work the farm and then send us over to his neighbor Farmer Dante at Milk Thistle Farm. It doesn't get more functional than farming, and just think of all that beef and milk...

Dan is at the NYC markets over the weekend, so ideally we should go up during the week: perhaps a Wednesday - Saturday. If that's not possible, we can make it a weekend only trip, but Dan and Dante will not be around to host us.

If you are interested in this trip, please email Margie(AT) about your availability either July 29-August 2, or August 12-16.
