Yesterday, I was contacted by the organizer for the opening ceremonies of World Jr. Track and Field Event. He has requested that CrossFit Moncton be a part of the opening ceremonies. Just to give you an idea of the size of the event, there will be 2000 athletes from 170 countries coming to compete. This event will be televised worldwide!
The opening will be culturally based, and they’re requesting 30 of us to help. Basically, we have to carry a gigantic lobster around the field. We would have 2-3 rehearsals and the opening night is July19th at 6pm.
Let me know if you can help out as I have to let him know by Monday morning.

Would love to help but unfortunately I will be in Bathurst for two weeks starting the 19th of July 🙁
I’m in for hopper and lobster.
I won’t be able to make it this morning.
Bummer! Guy and I would have loved to help out but we’re away.
Hey all. If you have no plans for Friday, our HTHS teacher rock band, Bored of Education, is playing at O’Brien’s in Lewisvillle around 9 or 9:30. I play, Jane’s brother Greg plays, and two other teachers make up the band. All are welcome!
What is WOD?
Probably not good if it isn’t posted 🙂
and nobody from this morning has posted yet either! a vow of secrecy?
I guess I’m not allowed to say what I saw on the site at 1:44 am… ??? Just looks like another good Crossfit challenge to me 🙂
You can tell me Gabrielle, I won’t tell anyone….
I will say this : today’s WOD is definitely something we can all do 🙂
Carrying around a giant lobster sounds cool!! 🙂
Maybe that’s the WOD!
is the lobster cooked or still alive ???
That’s great for Crossfit Kevin! i will be fishing Salmon while you and others will be playing with lobster.

Hi Kevin…I’m not going to be able to make my 4:15 today. We’re going to pick up our new rescued lab tonight in Enfield after work. Sorry (you’ve got us all in suspense though…I want to know what the mystery WOD is!)
Have fun with Atlas 🙂 He is blessed to have such a great new home.
Thanks so much Gabrielle! We’re very excited.

Way to go Gabrielle; I knew you were gonna get this one in under 15 minutes!!!!
Thank you Corinna 🙂 I think I got pumped from watching you guys and I was trying to keep up with Shallon. You did awesome too – your burpees are getting better and better everytime 🙂
Kevin I will take a 3:15 tomorrow if someone from the 3:15 class cancels.

I am already volunteering at the Worlds…sorry!
Id like to carry around a lobster! Count me in!
Hey I would also like to carry lobster around.
I was completely amazed at the level of fitness I saw in action tonight. Incredible strength and stamina. Congrats to ALL. Dan, Melanie and Amanda (630pm) you totally “rocked my socks”
And I bet you rocked their socks too Cheyenne 🙂
Ya, why don’t you post your deadlifts?!
That’s awesome!!! Way to go Cheyenne! 🙂

Needless to say, I finished it in 19:45 with the 5:30 crew…and most of the 6:30 crew cheering me on…Thanks guys! I am glad I finished it, Gabrielle you were right…again!
I think what you did was much harder than what we did and you totally rocked it 🙂 So, so proud of you! And, you got a PR on your deadlifts before the WOD – Fantastic!!!
