Crossfit Regional Qualifer (Hell's Half Acre)

Eric, Wade, Adam, and I are going to compete against 200 other athletes from a 5 state area.
We won't know what the WOD will be until we get there Friday night. Only 5 men and 5 women will go on to compete in the Crossfit Games.

May 2nd: Saturday
8:00 - First Heat of WOD 1
11:45 - Lunch
1:30 - First Heat of WOD 2

May 3rd: Sunday
9:00 - First Heat of WOD 3
1:45 - Lunch
3:30 - Awards ceremony

The CrossFit Games are the ultimate test of fitness. It's a grueling two-day competition in which the competition will take place from Friday, July 10 through Sunday, July 12, 2009.
The competition is limited to 75 athletes. The top five finishers from 2008 are automatically entered. Everyone else has to qualify through their Regional Competition. The number of slots allotted to each region is determined by the number of affiliates in that region. Both individual men and women competitions will be held Saturday and Sunday (July 11-12). What are the workouts? Each year they change, and the details of them are not announced until a couple days before the event. This means that all year long, the athletes are training for a competition whose format is almost completely a mystery.
