The 2012 King and Queen of Prussia

Today is the day you have all been waiting for...hold back the uprising, the workouts are ready. Arrive adorned in your best CrossFit attire at 8:30AM for the royal registration. Standards will be announced at 9:00AM and the workouts will kick off promptly at 9:30AM.

This year all athletes will compete in three WODs and when all the dust has settled, the top four men and woman will duke it out at the "Dance with Dragons" (the Final WOD). All scores will be wiped clean when the final four commoners compete for the title of King and Queen of Prussia. In addition to bragging rights for the year, the winners will have their names engraved on the trophy that is proudly displayed in the main lobby and their picture featured in the "CFKoP Hall of Exercise Fame". For those who have registered please take this opportunity to have your friends and family come and watch you compete. Click here for the heats.

There will be a "Court Jester" - spirit of the competition award this year.

As a thank you for being part of the CFKoP empire we will adorn you with T-shirts, feast on food and honor success with beer for all participants; please feel free to bring some food and drinks to contribute too!

I so wish I was going to be in town! Have fun!

So this has me excited. Not because of the WODs. No, no, no. Because of the opportunity to run a gambling pool based on this.

Haven't worked out all the details, but figure something like this:

1. $10 entry fee
2. Depending on the # of entrants, you're randomly assigned 1-4 athletes
3. You get points for (a) how your athlete fnishes in their heat, (b) whether they make the 4th WOD and (c) whether they are king/queen.

It would either be winner takes all, or a big prize for first and a small prize for 2nd.

Let me know if there's inteest in this and I'll work up solmething more formal. And build a spreadsheet!

Jason Lyons said...

I like to gamble, more fun if random too!

Cline said...

It would be random.

Wax said...

I'm in for the pool... great idea Cline!

Melanie said...

I assume box height for WOD 3 is standard 20"/24"?

Jim C said...

Gambling. Yes please.

Jason Lyons said...

Mel, I believe it is FGB style and everyone is on 20"

Cline said...

Aimee/Jason, how are the "Top 4" calculated?

Does your placement in your heat matter?

Aimee Lyons said...

Cline- I'm in for the $10. Calculations are based on ranking M/F for the top 4...ranking in each heat doesn't matter just overall. So if someone got a 1st, 3rd and 5th place finish they would have 9 points.

Jason Lyons said...

Tidmore, you are now in heat 3, Wax, you are in heat 2 and John Schaefer, you are in heat 1 so plan your arrival times accordingly. Any questions, please ASK.

Cline said...

That simplifies things. I've set the entry fee to $5, and you can enter as often as you want. So if you were willing to pay $10 before, just enter twice.

To secure a spot, go to this link and put your name in. Everyone can edit it, so please be respectful of what others have already entered.


Jason/Aimee, are you going to keep refreshing the PDF with any changes? If not, can I get the latest version by Friday night?
