A fabulous day of lifting on Saturday at the 2nd annual 2015 Centaur Classic Weightlifting Competition!

The success of this event would not have been possible without the efforts of a lot of people. Nick Roberts is the originator of the Centaur Classic and his help with coaching and lifting advice made for a smooth and successful meet. Thanks to Tom Abbott, Frank Williams, Dave Adams and Geoff Sharke for doing a great job of refereeing, Marilyn Zorn and Roanne Collins for plate loading and Chris Kennedy and Minetta Abbott for conducting the weigh-ins and taking care of administrative duties.

And a special thanks to everyone who participated. It takes quite a bit of courage to get on that platform and the quality of lifting today was phenomenal! We look forward to doing it again soon!

Great job on the MASH everyone! I think the Friday MASH is a hit!

2015 Centaur Classic

Don’t forget that Saturday classes are cancelled due to the 2015 Centaur Classic. This sanctioned weightlifting competition begins at 10am. Feel free to come by to watch and cheer on the competitors. Last year was a lot of fun and with over twenty lifters competing on Saturday, it’s going to be a good one!

Minetta Abbott and Chris Kennedy will be conducting weigh-ins starting at 8am in the upstairs change rooms at CrossFit Islander. Anyone trying to weigh-in after 9am will be unable to compete.

For those competing, don’t forget your $20 registration fee and have prepared your starting lifts for the snatch and clean & jerk.

Good luck everyone and I look forward to CFI kicking some butt!
