Mark has done it again. He came up with a clever and awesome name for our team divisions! Here is what he wrote eloquently on FB:
Welcome to The Game of Moans! The official site on FB for Crosssfit Pickering Athletic Supporters to monitor, cheer, and share their love of their athletic community with their fitness soulmates.
Each year, Crossfit HQ holds the Crossfit Open, the worlds largest fitness competition to find the Fittest Man and Woman in the World. While we, here at Crossfit Pickering, are under no delusions that person is coming from our box, we do have a cast of extraordinary athletes, and more importantly people, who love to take part and brandish their skills on the field of battle here at 1734 OrangeBrook Court in Pickering, Ontario, Canada!
To make this even more inclusive, we have added an in house competition, by randomly dividing the participants…both Games Registered Athletes and Non Registered Athletes into teams who compete for the HUMAN SPIRIT CUP shown in the picture above.
Thats right, even non registered athletes can Bootcampers can get points for their team.
Will you be part of TEAM UNSULLIED as they try to win back the IRON THRONE for KHALEESI?
Will you join the legacy of MANCE RYDER and Team WHITE WALKER in their ruthless quest to regain the NORTH
Will you collaberate with the dysfunctional HOUSE LANNISTER in unifying the Jaime and Tyreon in their quest to rule WESTEROS
will you be part of the evil DOTHRAKI empire as they mercilessly crush every opponent in their way.
…the choice, will not be yours! Teams are randomly put together and its your goal to encourage everyone, whether you know them or not in your quest for th the HUMAN SPIRIT CUP!
