Saturday Heat Times

Zach Ludlow

Hey all. Great first day of competition!

This image should be large enough for you to view, but here are the heats for tomorrow. Please note that some heat times may vary, so be ready!

Good luck to all the athletes and teams competing!

Great first day!

Bruce Roberts

Hey warmongers,

thanks for coming out to support a great event. One of the firefighters who is providing medical support thought that Tri Girls looked so fun he had to jump in and do it.

What a great community we have. I saw many of my friends and fellow gym owners out there competing and having a great time. One highlight was watching Damon and Joe racing and squatting. Not bad for a couple of old guys!

Day 2 is almost upon us. Heats will be posted first thing tomorrow, see you there!
