Throwdown Details

Caitlin

Just a reminder, all regular classes have been cancelled for this Saturday, June 13th as we host our first ever In-House Team Throwdown! Whether or not you are competing, this is a great community day and we hope you can all participate in one way or another. It’s always one of the best days of the year! Please feel free to invite your friends and family to come cheer you on and experience the CFS community.

The first heat of competition will kick off at 9:30am, and the events should be wrapped up by 1:00pm. After the competition wraps up, we’ll celebrate with a barbecue in the lot. We’ll play some corn hole and bring back the dunk tank. We’ll provide some drinks and burgers, dogs, sausages, etc. to toss on the grill. If you’d like to contribute, we could use some help with some extra side dishes. Please feel free to bring in your favorite side (paleo or not) to share with everyone. The more the better!

Coach Charlie will also be running a Paleo Cook-off in conjunction with the barbecue (most likely to increase the amount of desserts he can eat). The rules are simple:
1. Bring a tasty PALEO treat for submission (cookies, muffins, cake, protein balls, etc.)
2. The winner will be selected based on taste, look, mouth feel, overall eating experience.
3. The winners will be given awesome prizes. Stay tuned for more details on the prizes.

The fun won’t stop there! The social committee is organizing a post-throwdown get together for Saturday night at the Lawn On D. The plan is to meet there at 7pm for some drinks and more outdoor fun. Andrea will likely be challenging anyone and everyone to a game of ping pong, so bring your A-game! The Lawn on D closes at 10pm, so the party will likely move to another Seaport or Southie establishment for more late-night festivities. Clear your calendars and join us!

Below is an outline of the plans for Saturday. If you’re competing, please be sure to show up on time for registration. You don’t want to miss the athlete briefing – this is where we’ll cover specific standards for the day.
8:30AM: Athlete Check-In

    Shout outs to Sham for the playlist he had going at the 7PM. I can’t even imagine how long it took him to get those 20 and second clips mixed together like that so they worked perfectly for the WOD. The best there is.

    7/9/13 – 39 Rx
    6/11/15 – 40 Rx

    46 rx (6, 15, 6, 8, 11) One less than last year! Rowing and situps got better, push-ups were much worse. 🙁

    could an old fat bastard come by and maybe help out ( judge, bounce? whatever? )

  15. Shamweezus 06/11/2015 at 1:03 am

    Chuck would judge food based on its “mouth feel.”
