"Snatch Balance and Backwards East Canada"(9.23.2010)
I. Beast of the East @ CrossFit New England:
On Saturday, November 6th, 2010 three of our very own Vagabonds will be taking part in the Beast of the East Competition at CrossFit New England. There will be four events, with the top twelve moving onto the final event. The fittest and healthiest athletes on the East Coast and Canada will be taking part in this event. I encourage everyone to clear their calendar for this date, to cheer on your fellow Vagabonds, but also to see some of the best CrossFitters in the world. There will be over 200 competitors taking part, so you will be in for a treat watching the best get at it in a individual competition. Some of the CrossFit stars taking part in this event will be Ben Bergeon, Heather Keenan, James Hobart, Rob Orlando, to name a few. CrossFit New England is located in Natick, Massachusetts, so the distance is only about 30 minutes away. Do no make excuses why you cannot root on your fellow Vagabonds, Be There or Be Square!!
