Danni, volunteer extraordinaire.  Thank you to all the volunteers who gave up their Saturday so that we could play.

What a fun Saturday surrounded by great people.  We had 27 athletes competing and a slew of volunteers and supporters. We had first time competitors and veterans alike, getting their tail feathers ruffled and hoping they never have to go on a run with a plate again. Here are the results from the Annual Turkey challenge at MBS CrossFit.

  1. Jeremy :

    RE: Holiday Party Hint- Copy; don’t wear anything fuzzy.
    Once again, an absolute killer job repping Verve by everyone involved in the 2011 MBS Turkey Challenge… and I mean, EVERYONE:
    From the Chans to Emmalee, Anna, Zink, Ryan, Chris, Robyn, Nate, Brooke, Amanda, Ali, Addie, Bob, Jordan Michael, Andrew, Trina, Tiffany, Slaughter, Phil, the awesomeness that is the Verve Team to Darika’s killer first competition performance, the effort was impressive and inspiring.
    Special thanks to Erin, John, Danni & all the other volunteers that made it happen without a hitch. The cheer squad(s) that showed up at every WOD heat deserve special recognition; you all provided much-needed encouragement and support! Jim, Joylyn, et. al., Thank You!

  2. Wish I could’ve joined ya’ll! Sounds like it was awesome and quite the Verve showing 🙂
    Congrats to all (voluteers and athletes)!

  3. Jim D. :

    Outstanding performances by everyone. I really enjoyed being on the spectators side, especially since I didn’t have to run with a plate or do handstand walks!!!
    I truly enjoyed watching each of you give it everything you had. Very inspiring.

  4. Leslie :

    So much fun watching and cheering. All of the athletes put forth some amazing effort and it was a great event.
    PS- about midway through I started shooting some short videos of the athletes and talked to Chris Slaughter about editing and putting to music. If anyone else has video- get it to Chris! He will do something really cool with it.

  5. Emmalee :

    Many thanks to MBS, the judges and volunteers heres a few more:Kyle was a parking assistant, Aaron was the camer man, Jenn, Amy, Holly, Leslie, Stef, Hana, Katie, Kiley, and Rich were outstanding supporters as well just to name a few more:)

  6. Erin :

    As always, I was so proud of all of the Ververs competing, volunteering and cheering. Everyone who competed gave it 100%, had great attitudes and cheered on their competition the entire time. An amazing group of people, for sure!
    I thought the holiday party would be fun, but now that I realize it’ll be ridiculous fun I’m really excited!

  7. NateRader :

    41:47 Rx (with vest)…also a pr even though i didn’t wear the vest last time.
    Also, I would like to echo all the comments applauding the volunteers, spectators, and athletes. This was my first crossfit competition and I was not disappointed at all. That was an incredibly awesome and fun day. I can’t wait to do another one already!

  8. Hanna K :

    So proud Tobie a part of the Verve family – congrats to all the athletes, it was inspiring and fun watching and cheering you on!

  9. Jim D. :

  11. amy k. :

    Watching everyone Saturday was definitely inspiring – congratulations, all. I’m in awe and need to get my a$$ busy if I’m going to keep working out in the same gym!
    By the way, you guys added an extra 0 to the pull-ups, push-ups and squats for today’s WOD… 😉
