This Friday: Iron Maidens Registration Opens!
The 4th Annual Iron Maidens Raw Open is happening! We’ve moved to a warmer month this year: June 2, 2018.
This is a full, raw powerlifting meet contesting the Back Squat, Bench Press and Deadlift. It is open to women only. You do not need to be a member of CrossFit South Brooklyn to participate and we welcome all ages. We have space for 60 participants, and we always sell out fast!
For the third year, we are happy to continue raising funds for the Iron Maidens Stay Strong Scholarship which provides college tuition support to students of Grace Outreach, a Bronx based nonprofit that works with women to further their education and gain financial independence. Through past competitors’ efforts, we have raised over $65,000 and supported 10 women pursuing higher education!
Registration will open March 23, 2018. Be on the lookout for the sign-up link posted right here on the blog and the Iron Maidens website!
News and Notes
- A note from Stella Z.: “Next weekend (March 23-25) I’ll be heading to Stamford, CT for the American Crossword Puzzle Tournament. It’s a contest to see who’s the fastest and most accurate solver across seven puzzles, and the top three competitors at that point solve a live final puzzle on a giant grid in front of an audience. I’d love to get on the podium, although that is mostly a pipe dream, but my totally achievable and yet not easy goal is to remain in the top ten. As a reference point for how competitive the field is: I regularly solve the New York Times Sunday crossword in less than seven minutes, and I’m still not even unequivocally the fastest person in Brooklyn! Wish me luck, I’m gonna need it.” Good luck, Stella!
- Robert C. did some more maths and figured out that according to the CrossFit Games site, as of Saturday, CFSBK members had collectively lifted 252,855 lb (126 tons) in 18.4. For reference, that’s more than the weight of 18 Tyrannosaurus rex. For 18.5, you’ll have to kill the Tyrannosaurus for time.
- Don’t forget to submit your 18.4 scores to the Games site tonight before 8pm!
