First things first. Here are how the remaining ties played out.
Tricia and Holly for Women's Third
Jacque and Josh for 4th over all
This might have been my favorite competition overall for how closely the scores where based on the scaling between Rx Men and Women. Overall equal numbers between the sexes in the top 4 overall. Pretty cool, and really close on the tie breakers each time.
Now on to the business side of things. First, thank you for everyone who either commented or talked to me in person. The overwhelming majority want to keep the affiliate and I went ahead and signed the paperwork today. The thing that I really appreciated was that the reasons for remaining affiliated were based on positive changes that have been made by the new management. I always feel better making decision based on rewarding a good position or action rather than a punishing a bad action.
Personally, CrossFit HQ has their hands full and I don't feel that they are taking any interest in our internal discussions. However divergent our independent path travelled from CrossFit as a whole, it truly feels like their way of thinking and focus is coming back in line with our own.
Thank you once again for your thoughts for and against. I took them all very seriously and held them dear.
