Join us for an afternoon of "fun"draising at Green Mountain CrossFit's new Hyde Park facility. $50 to register your team. All profits to be donated to Green Mountain United Way. Come prepared with your teammate and your gym's custom Cornhole boards!
The tournament is based on the familiar backyard game Cornhole, but with a bit of a CrossFit twist. CornFit will be played in a double elimination format, a 10 burpee penalty for any player whose feet go past the front edge of the board and a Team Dance-off to resolve any disputes. Each of the 32 teams will consist of 2 players and proceeds from the $50 per team registration fee will support the Green Mountain United Way. Registration is open to the entire community, from competitive CrossFit athletes to those who simply love a game of Cornhole for a good cause.
This years tournament is at our new GMCF-North facility located at 576 E Main St., Hyde Park, VT. All profits from the event, raffles or silent auctions will benefit the Green Mountain United Way’s programs and services. We will be firing up the grill and providing Burgers & Hot Dogs for participants but you should plan to bring your own beverages.
The winning team will receive the title of 2018 Vermont CornFIT Champions, their names on the official Tournament plaque, and a custom trophy.
“We are always surprised by the creative ways that our local community finds to support our agency, and this is no exception! Green Mountain Crossfit has always been such an exceptional supporter of Green Mountain United Way and we are thrilled to be a part of the tournament again, and this time we’re hoping to field some United Way teams that win!” said Tawnya Kristen, Executive Director of Green Mountain United Way. “One of main initiative areas is Health and when GMCF came up with the notion of combining a game that anyone is able to play with a bit of competition and community building, I knew we wanted to be a part of it! The success of last year’s event has us looking forward to more fun in August.“
