Box Update and Schedule Adjustment on Saturday, Jan 6

On Saturday, January 6, the building will be making emergency repairs to the boiler starting at 8:00 AM.

We are told that the building will be as warm as possible (which may not be more than 65 degrees) when the boiler is shut down at 8:00 AM.
From there, we will run electric heat through the a/c units plus independent units, but Saturday is forecast to be the coldest day of the year.
We expect the temperature in the building to drop steadily starting at 8:00 AM, and we are doubtful the building temperature will be above 50 degrees by noon.
The building is so concerned that it will be draining the sprinkler system and other lines in the event of freezing – this is a serious building emergency.
We expect to be fine running early classes, but are uncertain about how long we will be able to remain open on Saturday.

We are urging our members to attend the earliest class possible on Saturday, and we are canceling the following classes on Saturday, January 6:

  • 1:00 PM Intro to the Clean & Jerk (Ben F)
  • 1:30 PM bWOD (Ben K)
  • 2:00 PM Intro to the Snatch (Ben F)
  • 2:30 PM bWOD (Avery)

We anticipate that the final bWOD of the day will be at 11:30 AM (though if practical, we may add a 12:30 PM bWOD with Ben F).

Depending on building conditions, we may need to cancel:
12:00 PM Active Recovery
12:30 PM Open Gym
