1. Do teams have to be all male or all female?
No. Teams can be any mix of male/female. We will scale scoring and add a
multiplier for teams depending on how many women they have on each team.
2. Will I be able to complete the CrossFit Open if I attend?
Yes. Our first individual workout on Saturday morning will be the 5th and final
CF Open WOD. This should be a great environment to post a wicked time.
3. Can I volunteer one day and compete for free the other day?
Absolutely. Just know we’ve already received interest from a number of
volunteers. We may have to cap the volunteers eventually, so if you want to do
it this way, jump on it now.
4. What is the process for registering or volunteering?
If registering, just go to www.thegaragegames.com/events/river-ruckus and
register. If volunteering, do the same. If volunteering AND competing, then
please register to do BOTH online and go ahead and make payment to compete. We
will refund your competition fee to you after the event.
5. Is there a Masters division?
Yep. Ages 40+
6. Is there a youth division?
Yes. They will do scaled down versions of the normal competition WODS. Like the
Masters question above, if we have enough to deserve youth subcategories, we’ll
7. I’d like to judge. How do I do that?
Awesome. We need judges! Minimally, we’d
ask that you complete the CrossFit online judges course at oc.crossfit.com. You can register to volunteer/judge at www.thegaragegames.com/events/river-ruckus
8. What prizes are up for grabs?
$500 cash and a trophy for the Rx winners, as well as some cool sponsor stuff.
9. When will WODS be posted?
They’re up. Go to www.wodlife.com.
10. Is this event indoor or outdoor?
Both. Right now plans are to host some events indoors at CrossFit Pisgah and
some outdoors on a green space on the French Broad River. The gym and the green
space are about 80 yards apart.
11. How do I become a sponsor or vendor?
Sponsorships are closed, but vendors can still hop on. Just email Ben at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 828.772.7115. We’ll get our
sponsorship packet out to you ASAP.
12. Can I change from Rx to Scaled or vice-versa?
Sure. Just email Ben at email@example.com.
