Week of 6/29 – 7/5

Congrats to all the ladies and gents who competed in the Fiesta festivities! On behalf of Karen and I, we were thrilled to hear about the CFCA sponsored ladies seine boat ‘Breakfast Club’s’ big win! But beyond that, just the general participation of CFCA-ers jumping in on things either they have never done before or things that personally charge them up has been really inspiring. Be it obstacle course races, climbing, hiking, biking, seine boats etc. That makes us so proud to have such an awesome community of folks willing to try new things and put themselves out there… and really is the best indicator that we are on the right track with CFCA. So thank you for that.
