All,

Reading the "ERASER BOARD" thread reminded me that I am constantly erasing/moving around text on my tiny (office depot brand) dry-erase board in my garage gym. Anyone have a source for giant boards, like the one at CFHQ? What would be best would be some raw material that I could order in squares, and attach it to a wall in any size I want - I don't need any fancy borders or eraser holders.

And on a related topic, how about a giant LED digital countdown (or count up) clock. Googling around I can only find ones that start at around $300-$400! Maybe I should drag out my old microprocessor textbooks and build one... I could then program it for tabata intervals. Ooohh, if only I was back in college and skipping classes again I might have the time.

For a countdown timer get the GYMBOSS, only $19.95 plus $2.95 for shipping. It's nice, compact and easy to use. It also has a belt clip on the back. It's perfect for tabata intervals.

If you're needing a dry-board... go to Lowes or home depot. They sell the sheets for around $11 to $12 !!! REALLY! Think of all the money so many of us wasted.

A quick thanks to Jason at CrossFitNC for passing on that helpful money-saver!

Yup, John is correct. You can get a 4ft. x 8ft dry erase board at Lowes or Home Depot. I have one in my basement.

Wow.. never knew HD/Lowes carried those. you guys rock!

Thanks for the gymboss pointer. A little too small for me, I'm looking for something I can mount on the wall and see from a long way away.
