  2. CFNE goes to the movies!!

    Wanna see Lone Survivor? Lets go as a group to the Friday night show. There’s a 7pm showing at the AMC framingham. Lets do this! Probably be best to buy ur ticket ahead of time on fandango or the AMC site. There’s a solid crew going right now and it’s growing so get on board and lets enjoy this one together.

    Here’s info for the tix/show times

    If you plan on attending please message me so I know to expect u! We’ll plan to meet at the theater at 6:30.

  33. Framanda-biaaach! 22:46. Took forever on the MUs. First time getting MUs in a WOD, which is a big step forward. Very different from practicing them fresh. Shoulders are torched from doing MUs yesterday and today. But I’m psyched to know I can do them when fatigued! Thx 9:30 for keeping me company at the end.

  34. If you’re regionals level (I’m not):

    g. Any Athlete who is attempting to qualify for Regionals shall use a registered Judge (that is, an Affiliate Manager or a registered Judge who passed the online course) during their workout. If no registered Judge is available, the Athlete is required to submit a video. Furthermore, any Athlete who thinks they may qualify for Regionals shall have all of their Open workouts videotaped and kept on file. At least one video will be reviewed by CrossFit Games staff prior to sending out Regional invitations.

    k. At the end of the Open, the top 60 men and top 60 women in each Region will be required to submit a complete video of one of the Open Events. This Event will be selected by CrossFit, Inc. after the close of final Open event. The required video will be verified by CrossFIt Games staff prior to sending out Regional invitations for individuals and Teams.

    i. The selected Athletes will have one week to submit their video. The video may be the original video captured during the Open, or the Athlete may repeat the designated workout and submit video of this performance. In either case, the video submission deadline must be met. All video submissions must adhere to the requirements listed in Section 7.d-e. Specific submission guidelines will be
    clearly communicated to the designated Athletes via e-mail.

    ii. Submitted videos will be reviewed by Regional Directors and Competition Directors. They will review the video and either validate or invalidate the submission. The Directors will have one week to review video submissions and make their determination. Only after the Directors have ruled on these videos will the final Leaderboard standings be set.

    iii. The video must be validated for the Athlete to receive an invitation for Regionals.

    iv. If a video is invalidated, the individual Athlete’s overall placement on the Leaderboard will be adjusted to reflect the removal of their score for that workout. The Athlete’s score for this workout will also not contribute to their Team’s score in this Event, resulting in a recalculation of that Team’s final placement on the Leaderboard. (Note: If this Athlete is a member of a Team ranked in the top 35 on the Leaderboard, validation of this video submission will be required for that Team to receive an invitation to Regionals).

    l. At the end of this week-long video review period, the final Leaderboard standings will be determined. The top 48 men, top 48 women and top 30 Teams in each Region will be invited to compete in their respective Regional competition. Athletes and Teams have 72 hours to
    accept the invitation or give up their spot. Within this time frame, eligible Athletes must declare whether they will compete as an Individual or Team; they must choose one or the other. Upon completion of the invitation process, final Regional rosters will be announced on the
    CrossFit Games website.

    • So basically, if you’re a regionals athlete, do all your open WODs at the box, on video, with proper camera angles (or just do it again when they annouce the video they need), and if you’re #49-60 in the region, you may not get an invitation to regionals
