Congratulations to Megan, Kelsi, Erin, Emily, Stevan, Brian C, Langston and Luke for great performances at Goblers and Goblettes on Saturday. Each team did great in hitting PRs, winning heats, and generally just representing QCC! Let them each know we are proud of them when you see them.

This week, we will have a normal schedule through Wednesday, closed Thanksgiving Day, 10am and 11am classes on Friday, and normal schedule on Saturday (no Elements on Saturday).

Beginning next week, Thursdays will continue to be a rest day or skill day.  We will begin programming a WOD for the class to do, but will start with skill work each class.  During skill work, if there is space, you will be able to make up any missed lifting from the week or can choose to work on the skill, but due to equipment, class size and class flow, you will not be able to make up the WOD from prior days.  As this is a new policy, we will workout any kinks going forward, but please provide feedback to info@queencitycrossfit.com for ways you think we can improve this time for you.
