Iron Major CrossFit - Fight Gone Bad 5

Fight Gone Bad began as a fundraising event in 2006. From those humble beginnings and with the support of the CrossFit community, they have proven what a small, totally committed group of people can accomplish. The first four editions of Fight Gone Bad have raised a combined total of more than $2 million.
Fight Gone Bad 5 (FGB 5) opens its arms to benefit three charities this year: LIVESTRONG, Wounded Warrior Project and the CrossFit Foundation.
The event format is the Fight Gone Bad CrossFit format. In this workout you move from each of five stations after a minute. This is a five-minute round from which a one-minute break is allowed before repeating. The event is in the 3 round format. The stations are:
  • Wall-ball: 20 pound ball, 10 ft target. (Reps)
  • Sumo deadlift high-pull: 75 pounds (Reps)
  • Box Jump: 20″ box (Reps)
  • Push-press: 75 pounds (Reps)
  • Row: calories (Calories)
The clock does not reset or stop between exercises. On call of “rotate,” the athlete/s must move to next station immediately for good score. One point is given for each rep, except on the rower where each calorie is one point.
Iron Major CrossFit intends to participate in FGB V. Ideally it would be something that family and friends could attend; cheer and support you and then enjoy some food as a group of families. We can't do this on the FGB 5 day which is 25 Sep 10 because of the level 1 cert. The possible options are:
17 Sep (Fri) 1600 - 1800
18 Sep (Sat) 0900 - 1100
24 Sep (Fri) 1800 - 2000


Please post to comments concurrence with the proposal and any preferred dates. This feedback is required no later than Thursday 26 Aug 10. More info on donations etc to follow in coming days.

saturday morning the 18th works best for me and with the family able to support mornings are better than evenings for the kids

Saturday morning the 18th is the best day for me also. I will be TDY that week so I cannot make it on the 17th. I think starting around 0900ish will allow those that want to bring family enough time to get them there without a great amount of effort.

I can go on Friday the 17th; duty (TDY) calls on the 18th.
