Teams of 4 people (2 men and 2 women) came together at CrossFit Webster for the Masters Team Throwdown. The teams of four had to have a minimum age of 160 years old. Each team participated in three WODs and the competition was great!
We are proud to say that one or our teams took first place (Bridget, Meg, Jim and Scott)! These four members are all parents and work hard with their busy schedules to be incredible CrossFitters. We are very proud of their determination against this tough competition. Three members were also part of the third place team (Christine, Eileen, and Dan) along with Jason from IronCore.
Congrats to all of the teams who participated.

On Saturday, Sept 20th, Flower City CrossFit and CrossFit Webster will be hosting a Hero WOD and Fundraiser in honor of RPD Officer Daryl Pierson. One of our members is a relative of his, so this hit very close to home for us.
We welcome the solidarity of other CrossFit boxes joining us with this WOD. The important thing is that everyone does something (and donates to the family through the official fund). Please feel free to join us in doing this WOD or change it for your community. We had some of our members do a dry run on Sunday, and the WOD should take most people in the 35-40 minute range with better athletes finishing in under 30.
The WOD (workout of the day):
8 rounds (8 years of service with RPD)
9 pull ups (September)
3 Deadlifts (315/225) (3rd)
14 Burpee Box Jump Overs (24"/20") (2014)
Flower City CrossFit: 7 am, 7:45 am, 8:30 am, 9:15 am
CrossFit Webster: 7 am, 9 am
We are asking all participants to donate $20 to the memorial fund that benefits his family (and bring your receipt to the WOD) or just bring $20 and we will make the donation on behalf of the gym community.
