Tonight, Im going to thank more people. Actually I'm only going to thank Lindsey Leonard for putting all of this information together. Without her organizational skills and "get it done" attitude, this information either wouldn't exist, or would not have been made available until May 19. So without further ado, I give you hopefully everything you need to know regarding Alison Stall's fantastic voyage to regionals. Thank you Lindsey!
Atlantic Regional Ticket Information
Friday May 20-Sunday May 22
Georgia World Congress Center
Tickets are $30 per day or you can purchase a three-day pass for $75. Children 12 and under get in free with a ticketed adult. To purchase tickets, click HERE.
CrossFit has not released a schedule of events yet for the weekend, but last year teams competed first and then individuals. We will post more about the schedule as information is released. Parking is available in the parking garages connected to the Congress Center.
For those wanting to stay the weekend in Atlanta, CrossFit has partnered with several area hotels to provide a discount. To find out more information about these hotels and to make reservations, click HERE. Several of us will be staying at the Crowne Plaza Atlanta Midtown. The nightly rate is $129 plus tax and fees. This hotel is about 2 miles from the World Congress Center, so you will probably want to drive from the hotel to the Congress Center. Book early, as we do not know how many rooms will be available at this rate before they sell out.
Preparing for and attending Regionals is not cheap. There are expenses leading up to the competition to make sure that Alison is the best athlete she can be as well as expenses for competing. CFEC is planning to do everything that we can to help Alison achieve her goals. A lot of people have already been asking how they can help and we have three easy ways below. No donation is too small!
a. #Chasingstall t-shirt/tank pre-order
CFEC will be selling #chasingstall regional t-shirts/women’s tanks with proceeds going to help send Alison to Atlanta! The unisex t-shirt will be a Next Level tri-blend in green envy and the women’s tank will the Next Level tri-blend racer back tank. All shirts will be $25 and we will have a pre-order sheet at the gym tomorrow starting at the 5:00 AM class. All pre-orders will be due by Monday, April 25 at the 6:30 PM class. Please see Instagram and Facebook for the design.
b. Alison’s GoFundMe page. We want people near and far who want to help Alison have an avenue to support her if they want. Click HERE to make a donation today and help her reach her goal!
c. Do you own or work for a local business that wants to help “sponsor” Alison? If so, for $100 you can have your business’s logo on a banner that we will hang up in CFEC recognizing Alison’s achievement of making Regionals, we will be thanking our “sponsors” on CFEC social media, and Alison will be thanking her sponsors on her personal social media and website. (For those who participate- Lindsey will be contacting you to get your logos for the banner).
*All checks for shirt orders or $100 sponsorships should be made out to CFEC and Nick and Cindy will handle getting the money to Alison.
If you have another idea on ways to help Alison, feel free to reach out to Lindsey. Also, don’t be shy about sharing any of this on Facebook to reach people outside of CFEC!
We want to show CrossFit that CFEC is the BEST community around!
Again, thank you Lindsey for organizing, and thanks to all who show support, whether it's showing up to cheer Alison on, or donating a few bucks for her cause.
If any links don't work, let me know and I'll repost them.
