FireBreather Championship

As I began CrossFit my trainers were heading to the Games. It blew me away that all they had to do was to show up and they were rolling with Chris Spealer and Jason Kalipa. Now that I own my box CrossFit Generate I feel like I missed out on some of that highly competitive attmostphere.

Thus the FireBreather National Championship was formed.

I decided to keep it true to the old feel as much as possible with the 10 US regions being the same as the CF Games.

50 men and 50 women first come first serve in a 2 stage major CF Championship, fighting for a top 5 placement to be invited to the Finals in Denver, CO in January.

More info check out the next Regional coming up in Manhattan New York on October 27 and 28.

Hey Brett. Have you mailed the promised refund check to Stacy with Girl's Rxd? It's been over a week.

Re: FireBreather Championship

did this thing happen?
Is the Mid-Atlantic event happening this weekend?
I can't believe I am so far out of the loop to have not heard of this.

Re: FireBreather Championship

Well, the NW event, I am told, was a big bust. Less than 20 men and only 3 women. I was looking at the mid-atlantic and not very many registered. I communicated with one gal who owns an affiliate back east who was registered. She requested a refund due to minimal sign ups and still they had not announced the venue location. She was told they would apply her registration fee toward NEXT YEAR's competition.

Brett promised a refund to our coach, Stacy, who also owns an apparel business, Girl's Rx'd. She was a vendor at the NW event. The check supposedly was mailed over a week ago, but she hasn't received it yet.

Re: FireBreather Championship

Well, that's too bad.
I generally support new CF competitions and try to raise awareness about such events.
Thanks for the info, Skip!
