Alright Gentlemen... If you can read, you have probably seen a bunch of posts on the blog about the Open. The Open is great and all, but the Marginally Elite Athletic Tournament aka MEAT is significantly more important and better.

About MEAT and History:
Since most of us won’t be going to the Games (I’m looking at you McGee), it’s time for the rest of us to get ready for a long standing CFC tradition, the Marginally Elite “Athletic” Tournament. The founding of this "tournament of marginality" dates back to the days when men like JoeP did CrossFit and Woody was too short sighted to add the “A” and just called it MET. Maybe they were vegan back then?

For those who have never participated, or are generally new to it, here’s the deal… Each week, you compete with other members of MEAT to beat them or embarrass them in the prescribed Open workout. The winner of each week gets a prize (most likely a can of PBR) and the loser gets a prize, too (your can will most likely be warm) and the privilege of donning the the Hallowed Pink Tutu of Shame for the next workout.

There will be brackets, seeding will be done based on how you answer a series of seemingly irrelevant questions you are required to send me. In keeping with MEAT traditions, brackets will be printed out and available for all to fill out. They will most likely not be finished until the Tuesday before 16.1

I don’t know who won last year, but the “JK Rule” is in effect, you have to do the first workout in the tutu, even if it involves HSPUs and overhead squats.

Speaking of JK, former MEAT participants that have since left CFC (Jared) (and now live in the woods or had a baby and are now living the #burblife), will be allowed to participate in MEAT from their home boxes, wherever they live, unless it’s Arlington Heights. You cannot win the tournament, but we can make you wear the tutu.

There are a few rules:
1.You must compete Rx’d
2.You must submit your scores to the Games website for it to count
3.You must be at least this tall to ride this ride
5.Remember, it’s not whether you win to lose, it’s how stupid you look doing it.

Action Items:
Fill out the fields in this documents so we can order shirts and determine brackets: MEAT2016 Roster
