First, allow us just a moment to express our gratitude to you, our CFM community. The Holiday Throwdown 2017 was a HUGE success. So many athletes of ALL fitness levels were able to compete right along side each other. It truly was a tangible example of everything we strive to be, and none of it would be possible without you. Thank you.

A few extra special thank you’s need to be sent out, as well… to Morgan Madruga for smoking and slicing all the meet; to Andrea Alvarado for doing all the scoring for us; to Rosa and Missy for organizing and executing the fundraiser for Sid. To Jeff Cole and Becky Drum for being the judges’ judges. For any and all of you who helped set up, tear down, judge, cheer, or just drink beer – thank you.

CFM is a special place for us, and we strive to make it that way for you, too. Merry Christmas and thank you again 🙂 – Anthony and Matt

Doors will open on Saturday at 8:15 AM, and an athlete briefing will be at 8:45. Again, if you are working out, please plan on judging at least one event.

Tri-tip sandwiches and beer will be available directly after we crown a winner. A donation to offset the cost of food and drinks is appreciated, but not expected.
