Exclamation Is this guy an Affiliate?

http://granitecitycrossfit.com/Home_Page.html WFS

All the research I have done would point to no and he would be in big time violation with crossfit.

Even if he is, one of the conditions of keeping an affiliate is having a link to crossfit journal (and others) on the front page which he does not.

Yeah that is one the reason I don't think he is and I live in St. Cloud and have never heard of him. Another is if you goto the Affiliate Page there is no Crossfit Granite City.

I got word from HQ that he is an Affiliate. They said they would inform him so he can make the proper changes to the website.

That affiliate site is weak sauce. Affiliate sites are usually pretty rough but that one is exceptionally sad.
