Comprehensive list of CF competitions?

Someone who knows someone please get them to put up a semi-official list of non-Games related CF competitions on the main site someplace?

Just found out about the NLP series event that's tomorrow, wish I'd known. Same thing with the Mission Gorge invitational, also tomorrow.

Word of mouth is nice and all, but I guess I'm out of the loop.

Since HQ has no involvement in any of the non-Games affiliated events, you're unlikely to see that happen anytime soon. However, there's talk of a sanctioning system being put in place for "off-season" events, so who knows.

I think, actually, that this forum is the closest thing to a "comprehensive list" that you're likely to find. With the obvious downsides: no calendar, no guarantee that events will appear, etc.

If you're looking in a specific area, you might try the affiliates in that area. My affiliate posts events it knows about several months in advance.

Re: Comprehensive list of CF competitions?

The original format of the Affiliates page was a 'decent' place to locate local happenings. But the format changed and essentially just put the same info already available on the main page. I asked a similar question to yours and the reply was this was a better way to serve the community, and if I wanted to find local events, I could search all of the local affiliate web pages.

I feel like you - there's a need for a central site to disseminate the local happenings.

Perhaps a facebook page called Crossfit Challenges and get local affiliates that are interested in reaching more folks to post their events therein.

Any other web whizzes out there know of a better format?

Although why this forum isn't a great place to find local comp info is beyond me.

Re: Comprehensive list of CF competitions?

Well Coach says that everything good that happens in CF comes from the community...all we need to do is pick a format that would be easy to update and easily house the information...then start pimping it out to affiliates...same way beyond the white board and other similar stat sites got started...

All this idea needs is a champion to get it going...Par??

If you build a web site, people will visit it.

Re: Comprehensive list of CF competitions?

I might be willing to take a stab at a website, might take me a little while though. I'll post back with updates.

Re: Comprehensive list of CF competitions?

Just an update... i've got something going. It's very basic right now.

Organizers can submit information like the name of the competition, their name and contact info, website, location/region, start date and length, hosting affiliate, brief description, the style (CF, StrongMan, MMA, etc.), any prizes offered for winners, and cost to enter.

Users will be able to view competitions based on region. From there, they can sort by competition style, start date, or location.

Are there any other features people would want to see?

Re: Comprehensive list of CF competitions?

This is how ish gets done! Nice Doug...I think we just pimp it out..I'll definitely spread your contact info around SoCal...

I think your basic info listed would cover it, for details interested parties can contact event POCs or visit host/event websites...
