It's Competition Season - Don't Miss Out!
Manwell: Veteran Competitor & Birthday Boy (Feb 7th)
'Tis the season for CrossFit competitions!! The OC Throwdown and the NorCal 40's are in the books and the SacTown Throwdown is coming up this weekend in Roseville, CA (we've got a ton of athletes participating, so do your best to check it out). And the Big One - the first step on the road to the CrossFit Games starts later this month when the first workout of the CF Games OPEN is announced on Feb 22nd.
If you have not yet registered to compete in The Open, we strongly urge you to do so. If you are looking for a reason, check out this blog post from our friends at CrossFit Turlock which asks the question, "Do you want to exercise or be coached"?
We will be holding The Open workouts at CFO each Saturday starting on Feb 25th @ 11am. You will be assigned a heat, a coach and your scores will be officially validated on the CF Games website. This is a great opportunity to compete against the global CrossFit community and more importantly to see what you've gained through your hard work at the gym.
Here's what you need to do to make it all official:
1. Register as an athlete on the CrossFit Games website. Make sure to choose CrossFit Oakland as your affiliate and again select it as your team. Do not create a new team - we have already created one and you simply choose CrossFit Oakland from a drop-down menu. If you are not linked to the CrossFit Oakland affiliate and team, we will not be able to validate your scores.
2. If you would like to complete the workouts at CFO and have your scores officially validated by our coaches, you must also register through our CrossFit Oakland site, so that we can arrange judges and organize heats for each Saturday workout. You can purchase all 5 workouts for $50 or pay our regular drop-in fee of $20/workout. The deadline to sign up for the 5-week package is Sunday Feb 19th, 2012. If you are doing drop-ins, you need to sign up by the Thursday preceding the workout.
Please feel free to email us with any questions and get out there and compete!
