090313 FRIDAY “Griff”
+++ROYAL RUMBLE TOMORROW!+++
Are “partner double unders” as stupid as they sound?
Yes they are. (don’t forget to wear a helmet . . .and a mouth piece).
And No, they will not be included at the Royal Rumble this weekend.
In honor of USAF SSgt Travis L. Griffin, 28, who was killed April 3, 2008 in the Rasheed district of Baghdad by an IED strike to his vehicle. Travis is survived by his son Elijah.

Royal Rumble Tomorrow at DCF! 11am SHARP.
Have you secured your place by emailing your team roster firstname.lastname@example.org? You can still come if you haven’t, but it will make things run a lot more smoothly (and we’d really appreciate it).
Frequently asked Royal Rumble Questions:
“Do I have to be an advanced CrossFitter to participate?”
-No. We like to structure our Rumbles just like our classes: ‘Broad, general, and inclusive‘. We will have scaled versions for most levels of fitness, as well as ways for the rest of your team to help “carry the load” so to speak.
“Do we have to have a full team of 4 with at least one female and/or one male?”
-No. We will figure out a way to let you participate (probably by matching you up with CFers from other gyms).
“What is the workout?”
-The workout is the “unknown and the unknowable.” It is not any CF workout you have done, it will have movements you have never completed, and it will be posted Friday night before midnight.
“Is there any charge to participate?”
-No charge for participants. The only requirement is that you have to be from a CrossFit affiliate (or email us otherwise). There will be a nominal fee for beer, and if we wrangle up some grub, there might be a charge for that.
“Are there any prizes?”
-Shirts for the winning team. And all the beer you can drink until the keg is gone (hey, ‘to the winners go the spoils’). And there are hotels nearby if you can’t produce a designated driver (i.e. no sleeping at the gym, without written permission from me, unless I am already asleep there. . .then you can wake me up and ask).
Any more questions can be sent to email@example.com.
RISE TO THE CHALLENGE!
Post your ideal Rumble WOD requests to comments. . . not that it matters, but it might be interesting. (For example, “Captains of Crush” gripper #2, muscle ups, and handstand walking, and I’d OWN IT -jj)
“Jan’s Bike Ride” will start at DCF at 7:45, and “Jan’s Trail Run” at 2:45 as usual this Saturday.
Our regularly scheduled 3pm class will also be happening as planned.
Unfortunately “Olympic Lifting” is Canceled.
