Paradiso CrossFit athletes and trainers, we have been invited to CrossFit Ventura’s Affitliate Team Challenge on Saturday, January 16, 2010.  Starting at 8am it will be comprised of three events, each to be announced the week prior.

Here are some guidelines from Bill Huffman and Colin Jenkins of CFV:

Affiliate teams will be made up of 4 athletes (2 men and 2 women) who train at your affiliate. Affiliates can register as many 4-person teams as they want. The day will include three (3) Team WODs (TBA the week prior) that can be scaled if needed. If, after forming your teams, you have 1-3 athletes who would like to compete, but can’t find a 4th member, send me an email with their first and last name and we will put them on a list to form a “Hybrid” team. There will be medals for each team member of the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place team who complete the WODs at prescribed.

The potluck was a HUGE success at our individual competition in October, so we will have another potluck after the event. Each affiliate is responsible for coordinating a potluck of their choice to be shared with everyone at the event. CFV will provide the grill and keg of course! So what should you do???

Each individual team should elect a “team captain.” The the “team captain” should then pay for & register his/her team (it is up to the “team captain” to collect the $$$ for his/her team). The cost for the event is $80 per team up until Saturday, January 2nd. From January 3rd to January 13th the cost is $120 per team. THERE WILL BE NO TEAMS ACCEPTED AFTER JANUARY 13TH. The “team captain” will then need to email us the first and last names of every person on their individual team by Wednesday, January 13th 11:59 p.m PST.

Friends and family are also welcome to observe and cheer! We will set up a table for t-shirts sales, so feel free to bring a representative to sell your affiliate’s shirts at the event.

Here is footage from their last event in October.  If you’ve never attended or competed in a CrossFit event, we cannot state enough the excitement, intensity, fun, competition, athleticism, community, and camaraderie that occurs at such events. Contact diso, myself, Matty, or Gretchen for details!
