THE GOVERNORS GAUNTLET….
“Think Big” has been our mantra throughout the planning of this years event. We’ve given you hints along the way, but today we reveal to you some of the “BIG” things on tap for this year!
First, you might notice something different about the stadium in the image featured above… With the addition of a 30 foot Monster Lite Rogue Rig fully outfitted with the favorite “Spealer” bar there will be no doubt who the most capable competitors are when the dust has finally settled at the end of the day on 17-September!
Second, a name change…The 2016 Governors Gauntlet, known in 2015 as the “Governors Games” is meant to test the metal of all who dare to compete. This event is unlike any game we have ever played so we were compelled to give it a more fitting name…
“The Governors Gauntlet”
The word gauntlet itself comes from the French word “gantelet,” and referred to the heavy, armored gloves worn by medieval knights. To throw ones Gauntlet at the feet of an opponent was the ultimate insult and could only be answered with personal combat. The offended party was expected to “take up the gauntlet” to acknowledge and accept the challenge.
Although nothing like the combat our nation’s warriors have seen, The Governors Gauntlet is meant to be a grueling test of one’s strength, both mental and physical. This event is more than a team competition. The Governors Gauntlet is an opportunity for all involved to come together as a community and give back to those who have given so much for us.
We have thrown down the gauntlet… Will you accept our challenge?
The Gov awaits your arrival.
Be Excellent. Be Gov Strong.
