No prob-
After I put that up, I wondered if you meant Wednesday's events, but it was too late to edit at that point. Wednesdays events (as has been beat to death here) will NOT be streaming.

But Sean! They will do the live radio coverage... they just haven't announced WHERE anyone can find that yet. Anyone know?

Saw others asking, thanks to Jeryd, I was able to find this - probably the closest we will get until about 11 - http://games.crossfit.com/about-the-...-radio-archive (WFS... I guess, no idea what content will come once the feed is live)

Re: 2012 Open, Regional and Games thread

Does anyone know of an online source for the plans/specs for the USMC O course they are using? I've googled and found a pdf that gives the standards for inspecting it, but no plans so far...

The reason I ask is we are building a new box and want to include outside elements, and from the videos people have posted here of the course it looks like exactly what we need. And if we are going to build it, I want to do it right.

Thanks!

Mark, I don't know the specifics on the one they are using, but *most* USMC O-courses are the same - your best bet is to watch a video and try and emulate what you see.

However, after doing Crossfit for awhile now, just build what you think will be fun and have access to. And O-course is an O-course, the only *unique* thing I've done on the USMC course that I haven't done on others is the double pull-up bar obstacle. It's basically two bars on top of each other with about 1.5-2 feet of spacing (maybe more) and you have to get over the top one.
