Sacramento? Anyone near by?


Recommended Posts

Hello fellow nerds! I work in Sac and live in Roseville. I think we've tried to get something together a few times, but nothing really happened. I'm notoriously a no-show because I'm a bit of a home-body, but I can try again if something is organized. I'm terrible at organizing things like this, so I won't be volunteering.

 

I compete in weightlifting and there are usually a few meets in the area during the year. My nerds are always welcome to come to those!

Uhmm... you did invite me to one of your OL meets and I was antisocial and didn't go.  (but that was before the name change from tyrsnbdr)    :nevreness:

 

Also, I'm looking for snowboard/ski buddies!!  I really want to go and not by myself.

OOOOOOHHHHH! HA! Well, you are still welcome. I'm not a fan of snow sports... I would mostly sit in a warm room and play on my phone. Sorry!

Phone games is what I do when I'm not lifting too.  Advertise your meets, I'll come out of my cave one day.  Maybe even do a real bench once.

I'm in Yuba City, but I work in Sac and am there all the time. I always wondered how much of the rebellion was in this area.

 

Hi Randy! It seems that there are a few of us in the area, but we haven't been able to get much going for any kind of meet up. Maybe we will if more people start popping up!

For sure! I'm dealing with an injury right now, so I don't know when I will compete next, but I'll let you know!

HI GUYS! My coach (Uncle Charles) has extended an invitation to Sacramento area nerds to come hang out at Crossfit Sacramento tonight. It's open gym, so you can come get in a workout and get some hands-on coaching, or you can just come to say hi and hang out!

 

The address is: 

1146 Fulton Ave, Sacramento, CA

 

Website: CrossfitSacramento.com

 

Charles gets there at 5:00, and I'm usually there by 5:30/6:00.

 

We have open gym every Friday night, so feel free to come in any other week also!

 

We are also planning a NF Meetup for the near future, so I'll start another thread once we get the ball rolling.

I live in Yuba City and work in Sac. I'm not much of an organizer of events, but I'd love to meet up if anyone's up for it. 

 

What's up Seeker Nova! I can't believe there's another Yuba City person on here. Welcome!

 

I noticed you do some Muay Thai. Sweet. I just got done with a seminar tonight (first time doing MT) and it was awesome.

I'll use a Phoenix Down on this thread lol

 

I've been flailing around for a while in Sacramento/Natomas for a while. I've been surrounded by a spectrum of people who didn't understand the geekery and I just sorta... conformed to that for a while. It was depressing.

 

I'm trying to reclaim and re-nerd myself. I've got a few nerdy people but we are an echo chamber. I want to build a larger social circle but this whole COVID thing puts a damper on it.

 

I'm down to discord for the time being and sort out some fun stuff

Have you checked out the challenge forums? You don't have to wait for the next challenge period to start before you join a challenge. I highly recommend diving into the Level 1 forum and introduce yourself. The Beginner Guidebook is a great resource for helping you get started on the first challenge.

“I've always believed that failure is non-existent. What is failure? You go to the end of the season, then you lose the Super Bowl. Is that failing? To most people, maybe. But when you're picking apart why you failed, and now you're learning from that, then is that really failing? I don't think so." - Kobe Bryant, 1978-2020. Rest in peace, great warrior.
