Get ready for the pirate gift exchange that goes down in the CF Upcountry history books. Our Upcountry Christmas party is back, and we are holding it THIS FRIDAY at 6 p.m. at the box. Past and present members, friends and family (16 years and older) are welcomed; the event will be potluck, BYOB and partially catered. Our yearly Pirate Gift Exchange, which always gets nuts, is a highlight. To participate, bring a $15-$30 wrapped gift. We will not have group classes Friday evening.


WHAT: CrossFit Upcountry Christmas party

WHEN: Friday, Dec. 15  6 p.m. to pau

WHERE: The box

WHO: Past and present members and a guest. This will be an adults-only evening. Members 16 & older are welcome.

BRING: Heavy pupus, salad or dessert (with a serving utensil). Some main dishes will be catered. BYOB.

GIFT EXCHANGE: Keeping with tradition, bring a pirate gift exchange item valued around $15 – 30. For new members, you may choose to bring a traditional or gag gift. Gift should be wrapped and we will show you how to play. This is pretty much white elephant on steriods — the kind of steroids that can get you banned from the Olympics.

WEAR:  The box gets cold at night, dress warm in a cozy flannel or your best ugly holiday sweater. Ladies, you are still welcome to “glam it up” – but boots may be advisable over stilettos.

HELP: Our party planners are actively recruiting for set up or clean up. Let us know if you can participate.
