12 Days of Christmas Holiday Party and Workout

From: $0.00

We are proud to announce our Ninth Annual Holiday Party, 12 Days of Christmas WOD, White Elephant, and Best Cookie Competition. Sunday, December 11, 2022, 6PM-9PM.

This year we have introduced a few twists to our 12 days of Christmas WOD with a mystery faceoff at the end. Also, members that register earlier receive a distinct advantage in the White Elephant gift exchange. First to register is last to go. You want to go last (or next to last) in White Elephant.

Prizes for the 12 Days of Christmas WOD have been revealed – the grand prize being a weight lifting belt from 2POOD. Bake-off winners will get 25-50% of the event proceeds, and we all will have a great time with complimentary coffee and hot chocolate. Please bring a mug.

12 Days of Christmas Workout

12 Days of Christmas WOD:

A specialty endurance WOD that’s lots of fun. Paul has been building Sand & Steel’s version for the past 9 years. The workout has a time target of 35 minutes and a time cap of 45 minutes. It burns a ton of calories so that you can be a guilt-free judge on the baking competition immediately following.

WOD Winners Receive:

  1. First Place: a CrossFit lifting Belt from 2-Pood
  2. Second Place: a Sand & Steel Beanie
  3. Third Place: a custom cut jump rope from Sand & Steel.

If you would prefer to exchange one of these items for store credit, we’ll make that option available.  E.g. you already have a 2POOD belt, so you’ll get a store credit for $60 instead.

Best Cookie Competition:

Sand & Steel will Supply Coffee and Hot Chocolate, Please Bring a Mug

  1. First Place: ~50% of the event proceeds
  2. Second Place: ~25% of the event proceeds

The remaining amount (~25%) will be used to cover costs for the event including prizes, drinks, supplies, credit card transaction fees, etc. First and Second Place winners will be provided the money in the form of Zen Planner credit if they are a member, or through PayPal if they are a non-member.

Official Rules:

  • Cookie is a broad term … fudge, brownies, biscuits, pastries, and protein bars are all considered cookies on December 11.
  • Pre-bought cookies. If you prefer to buy your cookies from a bakery, please select Baking / Baking & Workout option. You’ll be a judge, but you get the pricing discount since you are bringing food. If you choose this option, please bring something made locally. E.g. avoid national brands like Keebler or Nabisco.
  • You should bring 24 servings of cookies to the event.  You can break cookies in halves if your recipe only makes 12.
  • 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.
  • Bring a Mug for Coffee and Hot Chocolate. If you forget, mugs will be available for purchase $4.95

White Elephant SSF 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 (2021 rules).  Standard rules are in black, new rules are in red.

  1. Everyone that is attending needs to bring a gift.1
  2. The gift needs to be sealed so people cannot see the contents.
  3. You can bring more than one gift if you like, but 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. E.g. the first people that register for this event will go last. In White Elephant, you want to go last!
  7. When it’s your turn to pick, 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 Workout Official Rules

Our 12 Days of Christmas Workout will have a qualifier round, semi-finals rounds, and a final round. To make the semi-final round, you’ll need to place first in your skill class (Beg., Int., or Rx). Paul gets a “by” in the qualifier round and will join the semi-final round. Paul is ineligible to win any prizes, but what could be a better prize than beating Paul at his own game. #BraggingRightsForAWholeYear

Semi-Final and Final Rounds will remain a mystery until the event, but they are high-speed sprint WODS that should take 2-4 minutes to complete. In the semi-final round, you’ll face off against your opponent head to head. Two people make the final round, the fastest person wins it all.
