White Elephant Special Rules

Paul thinks the game of White Elephant is in some serious need of an overhaul, and so he is proud to present you with White Elephant Sand & Steel Edition.  Standard rules are in black, new rules are in red.

  1. Everyone that is attending needs to bring a gift.
  2. The gift needs to be sealed so people cannot see the contents.
  3. You can bring more than one gift if you like, only one gift is required.
  4. The minimum retail price is $25, but you can spend as much as you like on the gift(s).
  5. The gift does not need to be one item — it can be a collection of two or more items.  But they need to be sealed in the same box or container.
  6. The order you choose your gifts is the reverse registration order.  This means the first person who registers for this event, goes last.  Going later is a distinct advantage in this game.
  7. When it’s your turn you can choose an unopened gift or you can steal a gift.
  8. A gift can be stolen up to three times … once a gift is stolen three times it is locked.
  9. If your gift is stolen … you can choose a new gift or steal an unlocked gift from a person other than the one who stole your gift.
  10. If you bring a gift that is so popular that people steal it three times, you get to draw a second gift.  After everyone has gone, you’ll then get to draw a new gift or steal an existing one as long as there are gifts left to draw.

12 Days of Christmas Champion Criteria

We have two trophies available for the 12 Days of Christmas WOD.  The winners will be selected by the coaches attending.  The coaches will choose the best performing male and female athletes for that day.  Factors include:

  • Overall time to complete
  • Support of other athletes during the workout
  • Assistance with running the event
  • Sand and Steel Spirit
  • Overall improvement since their last observed workout
  • Overall performance and technique in the workout
  • Workout honesty — we know who shaves reps and cheats form and who doesn’t.  Do the work, if you want to improve.

Best Cookie Competition

Official Rules:

  • Cookie is a broad term … fudge, brownies, and protein bars are all considered cookies on December 23.
  • No one is going to ask you whether you made your cookies or you bought them some from some awesome hidden bakery in Fairfax somewhere.
  • You should bring 24 servings of cookies to the event.  You can break cookies in halves if your recipe only makes 6 or 12.
  • All attending members will taste 4 cookies based on presentation, originality, and consistency.
  • Each member will vote for a first and second-place cookie based on taste and creativity.
  • Bring an extra ziplock bag or Tupperware container to take home extra cookies to your families.

Hoho Good Luck! 

We will make accommodations for all injuries.  If you have an injury, please let us know in the checkout notes.  Unlike some WODs, you can mix skill levels on this workout, because you are being judged on your individual performance, not whether you win the division.  Rx athletes you will be paired with two beginners or two intermediate athletes to assist them in scaling and technique of the workout.  Paul will teach and demo both scalings, but you will assist your two teammates with corrections and scalings so they have a safe and fun experience.  #payitforward
