531Bench press

A huge thank you to everyone who came out and participated and/or volunteered this weekend, making the SmackDown a success! It was a lot of fun and an honor to be there with y’all. Special thanks to Raphael for giving us the space at Redwood City last minute, to Janet for rallying a great group of people from HGST, to Melinda and Kim for volunteering to judge the event, to Allsun for helping with logistics and especially to Andy and JD for letting us use their wodbrains program again to keep score and provide real-time updates on the internet. I had a cool idea, but nothing would have happened if it weren’t for all of you. Thank you!!
