ANNOUNCEMENTS – BA Throwdown, Memorial Day Challenge, etc
This Saturday May 24th at 10:00 am is the
BAY AREA AFFILIATE THROWDOWN!!!!
Words from the hosts: “For the Throwdown this Saturday, we’ll be doing a live drawing and creating the workout on the spot. It will involve a gymnastics move, a weightlifting move, and a run of a length to be determined. Oh, and we’ll draw the number of rounds and reps, too!
Also, we’ll be having a beer-and-barbecue celebration afterwards as well, so even if you don’t wanna take part in the Throwdown, come by for some good food and drink. We’re asking that everyone contribute $5 to the pot to cover food and alcohol expenses.”
Post to comments if you plan on competing, or even if you’d like to attend just to watch and meet some people from other affiliates!
Monday May 26th:
“TREVOR MEMORIAL DAY CHALLENGE”
Memorial Day at The Shed, Time: 11:00am (unless voted otherwise).
Details here at CrossFit Orange County
From their site:
CrossFit Affiliates, Fire, Police, and Military around the globe will come together to remember the fallen, and to support our sons, daughters, husbands, wives, neighbors, and friends who are in harms way each and every day.
Four member teams will come together for the Trevor Win’E Memorial Day Challenge to participate in a team CrossFit style workout and donate (each team entry fee pays for one cooling vest for folks on the front lines in Iraq or Afghanistan). This workout fundraiser is to support all heroes in our military. The event will be held at a CrossFit affiliate site near you. (Ask your nearest affiliate for more info).
The Donation to participate is $200 per team of four (so, $50 each).
The workout named “Trevor” is:
300 Pull-ups then,
400 Push-ups then,
500 Sit-ups then,
This is a timed team event, so these are accumulative reps. Only two members of the team can be exercising at a time.

July 5-6, Aromas, Ca
The Games are fast approaching and for those of you who are thinking of signing up and have been delaying. . . NOW IS THE TIME!!!
I have it from a good source that they are going to close registration to to the sheer number of competitors (CrossFit Oakland).
To help spur the those of you that are lagging, consider this. . .
EVERYONE FROM THE SHED WHO ENTERS WILL GET ONE MONTH OF UNLIMITED CLASSES FREE.
Yes, basically that means that if you register by June 13th, you can go to the shed for the entire month just for entering in the games (for those of you too lazy to look at the registration link on the right, the games cost $75 to enter – so basically you get to train as well as enter the games for less than our normal monthly cost).
