CrossFit Reston Chili Cook Off Rules Location: 11576 Greenwich Point Road, Reston, VA 20194 October 18, 2015 Defining "chili" For this Cook Off, ANYTHING GOES. You pick, Vegatarian, Spicy, Red Chili, Green Chili, Beans, No Beans. Sky is the limit. Cooking on-site For this event, you may prepare your Chili Entry ahead of time and bring it in a Crock Pot or a Pot that we can put on the stove top. Chili volume Contestants should bring enough to have about 50 guests have a taste and score the Chili. It will just be a small taste, like 2 bites. After the judging, we are sure that there will be folks that want to reload. Anonymity Entries should be anonymous. Everyone will be given Scoring Sheets that has a number that corresponds to the chili so we can tally up the final results. Judging, of course, is the crux of the event, and as such, has its own set of regulations (which will appear on your scoring sheet) , not the least of which is a standardized set of criteria that determines what makes a great chili. Chili Cooks—please take note In a chili cook-off, that begins with a set of five specific criteria by which each chili is judged: • Color -- Does the chili look appetizing? Does it look bright and colorful or dull and bland? • Aroma -- Does it smell good? Does the aroma make you want to dig in? • Consistency -- How is the meat-to-sauce ratio? It shouldn't be runny, mushy or overly thick. • Taste -- How is the flavor? Do the ingredients blend well, or is one too overpowering? Does the first bite make you want another one? • Aftertaste -- Once you swallow, is there a spicy taste ("bite") that stays on your tongue? Is it delicious? Awards will be given for: 1. Best Overall Chili 2. Spiciest 3. Best Vegetarian 4. Most Colorful 5. Most Elusive Secret Ingredient

BCF - as some of you have heard (or noticed), we have made some adjustments to our programming. Coach Jake has programmed for BCF over the last 3 years, and has done an incredible job helping our community vastly improve all 10 fundamentals of fitness!! Jake has moved onto a new job and no longer has the resources to provide the programming for BCF. Thanks to Jake for all he has done over the past 3 years!! Over the last 6 weeks (starting Aug 24), we have had 3 coaches provide 2 week programming cycles. We are continuing to refine our approach to drive our athletes to your best performance, and there are many ways to do this! If you have any feedback on our programming, feel free to share: - WODs you liked/didn't like - thoughts on our historical programming approach of strength & conditioning several days a week, strength day, long metcon day, skills and conditioning days. - thoughts on more traditional CrossFit programming (like crossfit.com) of just having strength or conditioning each day (along with skills, mobility, etc to have a full hour) - any other feedback (or benchmarks you're dying to test/re-test in the near future) Feel free to respond below or email email@example.com with your feedback! Your feedback helps us deliver programming that you enjoy and helps you get the best results! Thanks!
Did you know Full Circle has one of the largest female strongman teams on the east coast? Believe it! Today's blog is brought to you by StrongMa'am coach and competitor Gabby, who says, "Beyond medals and nationals qualifications, every team member has done things they didn’t think they could ever do and has pushed beyond what they believed they were capable of. It’s inspiring and something that others want to be a part of, and it is certainly something that I feel very honored to be part of." http://crossfitfullcircle.com/2015/10/06/we-make-strongman-look-fun/
