W.O.D. Wednesday 10/22/14



Click each picture to enlarge.  You’ll find the Heart of America Affiliate Team Competition Itinerary above if you want to come support CFR who has a scaled and prescribed team entered into the competition.  Get on the facebook page to see updated heat times throughout the weekend at this link  These times will shift based on team placement throughout the weekend, so it may be hard to post.  Side Note:  Personally, I have competed in this competition since year one (with CF Springfield), as you can see in the pics above.  This is a great competition that has grown exponentially each year, turning away hundreds of teams because of the demand.  It truly is a fun and inspiring event...
