I’m sure we are all familiar with the saying “all good things must come to an end”. I’ve never liked that saying because it sounds too damn negative. But unfortunately sometimes it’s true. What’s even worse is this time it’s hitting close to our CFTC family. Two of our own are saying goodbye to the OAC and heading off to start a new chapter in their lives. Some of you may know Travis and Heather Dugger, but for those of you who don’t, they are by far the most amazing people to walk this Earth. It is very rare that you encounter people of their caliber and mystique. Extremely motivated individuals, always generous and willing to help others without question.
Over the next several days, I encourage each and every one of you to take a moment to say goodbye to the Duggers, and thank them for everything we have. It is a well known fact, that Travis has been a huge supporter of CFTC from the very beginning and is partially accredited for helping it become what it is today. He gave it the go-ahead when the world still had no idea what CrossFit was. He was one of the first 6 students, and stuck with it through thick and thin.
As time went on, the first ever CrossFit Sectionals (now known as the CrossFit Open… Something you should ALL be doing) came around, CrossFit The Club was chosen to host the event. This was a huge undertaking for Travis, as he was the General Manager with everything on his shoulders. In true Dugger fashion, he pulled it off without a hitch and it was an absolute success enjoyed by both athlete and spectator alike.
Travis and Heather… We all sincerely thank you for everything. Take care of yourselves and we wish you all the luck in the world. You will truly be missed! Also, you two made the best Deb and Kipp EVER!

We are now up to 72 people registered to compete in the CrossFit Open. We plan on testing Fridays and Saturdays for the duration of the Open. There will be a sign up sheet next to the white board for you to post what day (Friday or Saturday) and times you will complete each workout. This will help us get an idea of how many judges to arrange and for what times. If you for some reason cannot do either of those days, please post to comments, or contact me directly so we can make special arrangements for you to compete.
