For anybody in the bay area, there's a STREND event Nov. 8 in San Ramon. Cost $50. It would be great to see some other CrossFitters there.

I checked out that event... Strend looks like fun, but it doesn't look like they devote much attention/reward for the lower body other than the 3 mile run? No squats, dead lifts, cleans, etc.. in the competition?

I agree. Without a lower body strength element this really weakens this competition. I'm not going. I think the founder isn't into squats, deadlifts, and cleans, thus they don't show up in the competition.
