The event was held at a CrossFit Gym, so they had (and I used) Theracane, Abmat, Foam Roller, Crossover Symmetry, and Chalk.  In an unknown environment, I would try to bring a foam roller.  One athlete brought a jump rope and was using it between events.

Had all the events been outside, it would have been nice to have a boonie hat or straw hat.

I would also like to add cold packs to my medical kit.  My forearms were lit up after the Farmer's Hold.

A couple of athletes were using ammonia inhalant.  I should practice with this.  Several athletes were using Figure 8 wrist straps for the deadlift.  I will keep an eye out for a pair.

I packed a little randomly.  In the future, I will pack primary support gear, propel and snack in one small tote bag.  I will pack spare clothes, spare gear and medical in a large duffle in the car.
