You don't like me posting WOD's before hand

You'd rather it was a surprise

But don't have the self control to not look........

So here's last nights board complete with times

Well done, the #Masters did it at 8pm and it was a bit naughty........

Here's a tekkers video for you to have a look at.......

It's not in tonight's WOD ;-)
