Here is the e-mail I got from the event coordinator at the "New England Throwdown" I am sure that it will be fun. Please post to the comments if you are interested in going as a group this Saturday-all events are scalable.
I have gotten a good response for the throwdown, so this should be a great event.
Here are some more details you can pass on to your athletes.
I have created 45 workouts which will be thrown into a hopper.
We will pick 3 of these wods the morning of the event.
Event 1: Lighter/bodyweight-ish metcon...like a shorter "Nicole"
Event 2: Heavier metcon...like "Games Grace"
Event 3: Combo of the above 2...like "Elizabeth"
There will be a 12 minute cap on each event.
Each event will be scored as follows:
1st place = 100pts
2nd place = 95 pts
3rd place = 90 pts
4th = 89 pts
5th = 88 pts
6th = 87 and so on...
$10 Entry Fee. No pre-registration needed, but I'd love to know how many you'll be sending. Top Male and Female get cash.
We are still planning on starting at 1:00, but this could be earlier (11 or 12) if the response is big.
Also remember to plan for the "80's Party To Remember" The warm-up and WOD have been selected. Please make sure that you have all of your journals and log books so that we can rehash some memories/accomplishments. Please let me know if you plan on bringing a guest.
