It’s Just a Workout!

Game Day Saturday’s are open to ALL!  Whether you are participating in the Open or not, we welcome you to come workout, spectate and cheer, or both!  Over 80 Foundry Athletes have registered for the games, wow!!  If you’re still on the fence, there is still time to register, see our instructions at the bottom of the email!

Reminder: The event is happening at PRINTERS ROW.

Union Station will be closed tomorrow – if you are a US member and need your shoes or other gear be sure to collect it before 7:30pm tonight!

Dragons vs FireBreathers

For the first time ever, Printers Row (Dragons) and Union Station (FireBreathers) will square off in a friendly rivalry.  Here’s how it works –  Each week, teams will receive points in the following three categories:

  • Participation:
    • +1 point for each athlete completing the workout.
    • +2 points if that athlete is registered for the Open.
    • Score will be normalized against membership numbers, the team with the highest participation will take this category
  • Performance:
    • The top 4 men’s scores and top 4 women’s scores from each team will be added together to form a team total.
    • The team with the higher total takes the category
  • Team Spirit
    • The team with the most spirit, as judged by a panel will take this category
    • Cheering, signs, costumes, or anything are encouraged!

Each week, one team will be declared that week’s winner.  At the end of the five weeks, the team with the most weekly wins will be declared winner of The Foundry Cup!  Come support Team Foundry and your favorite athletes

  • Coaches will be rotating through the warmup area to answer last-minute questions, but they are also participating in the workouts!
  • We ask each person participating to judge & score for at least one other person.  This will be explained during the briefing.
  • After you complete the workout, please enter your score through the CrossFit Games website or the mobile app before you leave, to ensure accuracy and timeliness.
  • In order to receive the Open shirt, we need to collect your shirt size.  We will be doing so during registration tomorrow.

We look forward to having a great time with everyone tomorrow!
