FC Summer Games 2011 – What you need to know
Sorry for the late post my new FC Games website crashed. I just couldn’t resist. Anyhow I’m very excited to announce that this year we have kicked it up a bit. Same great time, same great community but we have added some stuff. Thanks to some very generous support from Rogue, lululemon and Tasi’ ,just to name a few, the gear, prizes and food are going to be awesome.
This year’s event will take place in McFerson Commons ( Arch Park) in the Arena District. We have lined up a special rate for parking and will have awesome food (meat, veggies and fruit) and beverages available on site through out the day. Spectators or athletes who prefer more potent recovery beverages can eat and drink at Boston’s, Teds or BD’s Mongolian BBQ through out the day.
The WODs will not be announced until Saturday morning, so don’t ask.
Here is how the day should go.

There are four divisions Men’s Open, Women’s Open, Men’s 40+ and Women’s 40+. All athletes will have a chance to compete in WODs 1,2 &3. The top competitors in each division will compete in the Final WOD. There are prizes for 1st, 2nd & 3rd place in each division. Athletes that scale a WOD will not be scored for prizes but will be placed in a participation category.
Registration ends at 11:59 on Thursday August 11th, so get registered. I will arrange the heats and post the times for WOD 1 Friday. We will run the divisions in the following order through out the day: Women’s 40+, Men’s 40+, Women’s Open, Men’s open. Specific assignment details will go out Friday. So far the competition looks strong with over 60 athletes from 5 states. This is going to be a blast.
