East Coast CF Challenge

Hey all,

We are planning to hold the first annual East Coast CF games at Albany CrossFit. I'm working on a good date in May or June. I know I will not be able to accomodate everyone but wanted to poll everyone to get an idea of what works.

Tentatively I am thinking of May 31st, it's after Memorial day and before Summer. It will also give anyone planning on going West in July time to prepare.

If you want more information of want to be added to my distribution list, e-mail me at JasonAckerman246@hotmail.com

I'm looking forward to holding this event, it will be a great way to meet some fellow CFers and show the West Coast how the East Coast does it!!!

Re: East Coast CF Games

Here is what I have brainstormed...


4-mile Run

CFT

Hopper Event

Schedule would look something like:

Friday - arrive, competitors meeting at night
Saturday - morning CFT, break, late afteroon Run, evening - dinner and party for competitors

Sunday - morning hopper event, late afternoon awards ceremony.

Any opinions?

Re: East Coast CF Games

I'm disappointed. Per our union, I had to apply for and have approved all vacation picks for 2008 two days ago. Not a chance I can change anything now.

Re: East Coast CF Games

The wheels are already turning.

Folks should know that Albany Crossfit is located a very short cab ride away from Albany International Airport, and also has an Amtrak train station about 25 min. ride away.

There are plenty of hotels, restaurants, and a large mall all within a few minute's walk from the gym. Once we get going with registrations, we can certainly arrange a group rate at an affordable hotel. There's plenty to do within walking distance for anyone bringing da family.

Plus we're the nicest bunch of hard-working b**tards anywhere.

Re: East Coast CF Games

Aww dang! That's going to be a week after my wedding, and I'll be on my honeymoon!

And I was always wishing there'd be an east coast games too... Oh well, that just means I got a year and a half more of training before my first games!
