Hunter Rowland (The Positive Ninja)
Kai Beckstrand (Cobra Kai)
Max Feinberg (Amaxing)
Riley Porter (Bookworm Ninja)

This will be a limited capacity, multi-stage event with cash prizes and half the proceeds going to The Wounded Warrior Project. NOTE: This is not a competition for beginners!
There will only be 96 slots available for athletes 14 and over. (Exceptions for 12-13 year-olds must be pre-approved by Rock Solid Warrior... those registering who are under 14 that are not pre-approved will not be allowed to participate. Contact email@example.com if you fall into that category.)
Participants age as of January 1, 2022 will be used to determine eligibility.
Saturday, February 19 (Live stream on Facebook)
two course stage 1(speed and technical)... top 50% (or those reaching a minimum score) of male and female by combined score from both courses move on to
stage 2 (longer, more technical course), top 50% of male and female (rounded up) move on to
stage 3(very challenging upper body and grip course)
Both Stage 1 courses will use NCL Rules with points gained as you progress on the obstacles. Stage 2 will have a point system and will allow 1 fail - second fail ends your run. Stage 3 will be one fail and you're done... farthest, fastest to determine the champion(s)

NOTE: Monday, February 21 is President's Day which may give people more options to consider for those traveling
two partteam competition (teams will be assembled from all participants in an NFL style draft pick...)
tag team competition on hybrid course from all three stages (and possibly some other wrinkles)
tag team competition on same course (but no team member can repeat obstacles they tackled on the first round)
