We’re back from a Bonsai weekend at the Crossfit Southwest Regional Qualifier – GSX Hell’s Half Acre, and whew – what a weekend. As you saw earlier, we faced some weather challenges, but even with Mother Nature doing her part to dampen our spirits we managed to have a super successful weekend. We sold out of nearly all of our product, met a ton of excellent people, helped countless people, and had a great, great time.
Here are a few photos from Saturday night and Sunday – we’ll go short on text here, and just share some pictures.
The top five women finished as follows:Carey Kepler, Pollyanna Bobseine, Crystal McReynolds, Lindsey Smith, Nikki Hall. Congrats to CrossFit Central – they had two (2) top five women’s finishers (Carey and Crystal)!!
The top five men finished as follows:Dutch Lowy, Breck Berry, Lance Cantu, Vic Zachary, Jason Boag. Congrats again to Crossfit Central – Lance is a coach there, and finished third! Crossfit Central was tearing it up!!
For what it’s worth (we’ll brag a bit here), we spent a lot of time working with (rolling out) a bunch of the top 10 finishers. Dutch came by for a refresher on Saturday, and then rolled out extensively after his heats on Sunday. Carey and Crystal took a Quadballer back to the hotel with them on Saturday night; each made sure to rollout before their heats. Lance has taught classes for us and was spotted using our stuff over the weekend. We’re not saying you’ll be a top 5 finisher if you use our product, but it definitely won’t hurt to roll out!
And many, many thanks to Tucker and his crew over at GSX. They did a fantastic job with the event – everything went off without a hitch, and we really enjoyed ourselves at this inaugural event. We can’t wait to go back next year. Here’s Tucker getting a little emotional – he and his crew put their hearts into this event, and it showed:
With the event over, it was time to pack-up the Trigger Point RV and hit the road back to Austin. We got everything loaded up (there wasn’t any product to load-up as we sold out of it all), and got to motoring. Thanks again to everyone who attended the show, stopped by to work with us, bought product, and gave us wonderful feedback. Triathlon/marathon may be our “home crowd,” but you CrossFitters are really making us feel welcome and like a part of the family – we can’t say thank you enough for your interest and support.
