CrossFit Cape Ann – Not Your Average Joe’s Competition

CrossFit Cape Ann put a team together from Gloucester to compete in the “Not Your Average Joe’s Competition” in Danvers. (I thought at first daughter Whitney had invited me for lunch..) CrossFit Teams from many of the area gyms came together to compete in weightlifting and rowing events. Competing for the first time in this event and not knowing what to expect, the team placed well landing in the middle of the pack of over about 40 teams.

Rick Terselic Represents! At The World Championship Punkin Chunkin Competition in Bridgeville, Delaware

Hi Joey:

Visited with you at Capt. Joe’s during Fiesta last summer.  I’m so thankful for all you do which allows me to keep current with happenings in Glosta.  Big shout out to Tom P. in The Fort & Erik H. in Annisquam! 

I’m fortunate to have joined the "Chunkin Up" team, and I brought my GMG sticker to World Championship Punkin Chunkin Competition in Bridgeville, Delaware this past weekend. 

Discovery Channel was there in force, so everyone will be able to see what happened later this month — usually around Thanksgiving.

Couldn’t help myself from yelling  "Chi Samiou Dute Mute? Viva San Pietro!" a few times, which lead to puzzled looks from team members… and later thinking that a pumpkin cannon built to resemble the Greasy Pole with a crew of costumed Sicilians could be a great idea for a future team?  Perhaps that deserves some consideration from Gloucester based Chunker engineers?

All the best, and keep on building the best blog on the planet!  We really do appreciate it.

Rick, Louise & Anthony Terselic in North Potomac, MD
