Re: East Coast CF Games

Did they offer cash prizes last year? If so, do you know how much and to what places?

Re: East Coast CF Games

DL and press sounds like it would cover the strength portion pretty well.

Re: East Coast CF Games

For the southeast, I've emailed Jason at CrossFit Albany and are now planning to hold a concurrent CrossFit games in Melbourne, Florida at Harbor City CrossFit. Same format, same days, same workouts. We are a 5,000sq' facility, 40 min due east of Orlando and 3 miles from the ocean. This will give folks from the south east an opportunity to compete, and meet other CrossFitters.

Re: East Coast CF Games

I'm going to offer $ to the top overall male and female and medals to top 3 overall and every event. Also, I may have some challenges, ie. muscle-ups, pullups, Fran, etc. if we have the time and depending on the number of participants.

Re: East Coast CF Games

I would love to do the whole CFT to make the competition on par with the west coast version. (or as close as possible)

Re: East Coast CF Games

Albany Crossfit to Host East Coast Crossfit Challenge
Jason Ackerman of Albany, New York is pleased to announce that Albany Crossfit will play host to the first annual East Coast Crossfit games, scheduled for Friday, May 30th through Sunday, June 1st.

The festivities begin Friday evening with chance to meet fellow Crossfitters during a non-alcoholic cocktail hour, a tour of the facility, and a pre-games briefing.

Saturday, May 31st morning will see participants doing their best in the CrossFit competition. A 5 kilometer run is scheduled for Saturday afternoon.

Sunday morning Crossfitters will wait breathlessly for the Hopper event, a random drawing that will set competitors to doing a Crossfit WOD. Will it be Fran? Or Murph? Or something we haven’t seen before?

What you get for your entry fee:
-T-shirt for all competitors
-Prize money for top overall male and top overall female finisher
-Medals and Free participation in next year's ECCFG for top male and top female in the hopper event
-Medals for top 2 finishers in each weight class for the heavy lifting
-Food during Friday's social hour
-Food all day from the kitchen Saturday
-Dinner Saturday night (tentatively scheduled to be a full pig roast on premises with plenty of sides for the non-meat eaters)
-Awards ceremony Sunday late afternoon following the hopper event.

Ten years from now, when Albany's hotels fill up months in advance for the East Coast Crossfit Challenge, you will want to say you attended the FIRST ANNUAL event!

Albany Crossfit is located within the Court Club, a gym that includes racquetball courts, a climbing wall, spin bikes, and full service locker rooms with showers. Family members will be welcome to use the Court Club facilities, including the climbing wall, for a small fee.

Albany Crossfit is located a short ride from Albany International Airport. Blocks of rooms at discount rates will be available at hotels located within walking distance of Albany Crossfit. Also within walking distance: an upscale shopping mall with movie theaters, restaurants, and bookstores, to keep the family happy if they accompany you!

Call or email Jason Ackerman at 518-221-8431 (jasonackerman246@hotmail.com)
