Let The Games Begin!?

We’re anxiously awaiting the announcement of the first event of the 2011 CrossFit Games Open (unknown and unknowable?).  We don’t know what we’ll be doing, but we can tentatively give you the where and when.  As of now, the plan is for CrossFit Southie to host the week 1 workout this Saturday, March 19th, with everything getting started at 1 PM.

UPDATE: Now we know the what too.  CrossFit Games Open 11.1 is a 10 minute AMRAP of 30 double unders and 15 power snatches.  We’ll keep you posted with any additional information.

We’re working with Southie, and CrossFit New England to host The Open events.  We are expecting to have over 100 athletes competing each weekend.  Scaling will not be allowed.  Certified Level 1 athletes will be asked to judge as well as compete.  If you are a Level 1 Coach but don’t plan on competing we could use your help judging, as well as the assistance of any other willing volunteers to keep each event running as smoothly as possible.  Please e-mail Eric if you need further information about competing, judging, or volunteering.
