The 2017 CrossFit Open is almost here, and this year we are going to start a new tradition with the start of our CrossFit Townie Intramural Open. This is going to be an awesome time for our athletes to come together, support each other, and push each other to things we never thought possible. This in house competition is for all CrossFit Townie athletes regardless of fitness level or ability. It doesn't matter if you have been doing CrossFit for 5 years or five days, you can participate, push yourself, and have a blast.
Go to games.crossfit.com, create a profile, and sign up for the 2017 Open. Cost is $20 and be sure to select CrossFit Townie when they ask for your affiliate.
This year we are going to split the gym into two teams. Devin and Hannah will captain one team while Blake and Jonathan will captain the other (team names are TBD). All athletes who sign up for the Open will be put on one of the two teams. Teams will be decided February 20th and everyone else who signs up after that date will be drawn from a hat. The sooner you get signed up, the quicker we can put our teams together.
Our 2017 Intramural Open kicks off on Friday, February 24th at 5:00pm and continues on the same schedule for the following five weeks. Each Friday night during the Open we will have what we are calling Friday Night Lights, where everyone is invited to come out and support our athletes competing in the Open. We will have judges, cheering sections, fun, and maybe some food and drink. Everyone is welcome even if you aren't doing the workouts. If you can't make it to Friday Night Lights, you will also have an opportunity to complete the weeks workout during the AM class periods since that will be the programmed WOD for the day. There will also be an opportunity to complete the WOD during Saturday Open Gym, but we really want to encourage everyone to try to come on Friday night to create the best atmosphere possible.
+1 point - For completing the workout and submitting your score at games.crossfit.com before Monday at 8pm.

+3 points - For best team spirit. Ex: cheering, team signs, team outfits, fun, team/gym pride, sportsmanship
Each member of the winning team will receive a limited edition 2017 CrossFit Townie Open Champions t-shirt. Of course, everyone who completes the Open will have the prize of being just a little bit fitter and have a whole lot of FUN!
