The Open Teams
Just like last year, we will be running an Intramural team style Open. If you are registered for the Open, you will be drafted to one of four teams within the gym. Each team will work together to try and accumulate the most points per team in the gym! You may remember that “Team Tickles” won last year and has their name engraved on our championship belt, this year we will compete to see which team will earn a spot on the belt!
This years Captains are…
Mark Wilkens – The Process
Terra Anderson – 2 LeFit 2 Quit
Joel Quizon – Bringing Flexy Back
Sarah Addy – Flex Appeal
The team Captains will draft from every registered athlete for the Open on February 9th (so get yourself registered before then!) We will announce the the team rosters on the following Monday. There will be t-shirts, Facebook groups, team emails, etc that will be set up once the teams are created. Your team captain will be your main contact throughout the Open for questions or concerns!
The Open Workouts
This years workouts will also be very similar to last years process! Each weekend of the Open, Vantage will host an event on Fridays at 6pm. If you want to be judged in the Open and submit an official score, this will be your chance to complete the workout with a judge.
Each night we will allow people to start signing up for heat times at 5:30pm on the front whiteboard. If you are competing, you will be asked to sign up for an athlete slot AND a judging slot. So please plan to stick around for at least 2 heats to help get everyone through the workout! Vantage will provide details on judging standards and process the night of the event based on WOD specifics.
There will also be vendors here offering samples and sales of food and beverages most of the Fridays throughout “The Open”. If you have not experienced this before it is a very fun and encouraging atmosphere! Feel free to invite friends and family to come watch and cheer you on, we can’t wait to see what the athletes of Vantage accomplish in this years Open!
