2010 CrossFit Games Finals

Make the Most of Your Weekend

A guide to the 2010 Games festivities at the Home Depot Center

The competition at the 2010 CrossFit Games next weekend is just the tip of the iceberg. The traveling roadshow that accompanies Games competition is equal parts carnival, rock concert and family picnic. Last year, The Sporting News called it Burning Man with kettlebells and without all the acid. Good friends, lots of eye candy, activities and entertainment abound to make the CrossFit Games such an amazing event.

The addition of the live feed and onsite viewing via three Jumbtrons and a dozen plasma televisions raises this bar once again.

Tent City will be the home of all the day campers and affiliate teams. Many will be selling their shirts and swag, so pack light! The venue will be stacked with vendors, activities and entertainment throughout the weekend. Here is a guide to some of the other activities you will not want to miss.

Enjoy some libations with friends and strangers. In the dead center of Tent City you will find the Oasis: An 80' x 200' tent that houses the beer garden and full bar, 55" plasma screens tuned in to the live action, and a gang of tables for your loitering pleasure. We've stocked it well since partygoers at last years Games made good use of the Aromas beer tent. This bar will close one hour before the competition ends on Friday and Sunday, but will stay open until 10pm on Saturday.

Join the Opening Night Party. At the close of the competition Friday, enjoy dinner and drinks in the premium lounge of the Home Depot Center. Tickets are required, and include a robust buffet dinner and one drink. A full cash bar is available after that. The Party will last from 9 pm until midnight. You can purchase your tickets here.

Win a VIP Suite for a Day! Register to win at the CrossFit Journal booth. The winning Affiliate will get to watch that day's Stadium events in style from a 15 person Luxury Suite (and the Track events from the VIP tent). If your affiliate has at least 15 people in attendance, you're eligible! Friday's winner will be announced at 11am. Saturday's winner will be announced at 5:30pm Friday, and Sunday's winner will be announced at 5:30pm Saturday.

Entertain your ankle biters and rug rats. Jeff and Mikki Martin are running a CrossFit Kids Zone throughout the weekend. Parents can watch their kids playing CrossFit style. This is not a daycare, but an opportunity for the kids to have a blast in a healthy and productive environment.

Juggle kettlebells with professionals. Jeff Martone, of Tactical Athlete, will have a booth at the event. He will be on hand to teach H2H drills to those brave enough to try.

Saturday night party in Tent City. We'll have music, drinks and the CrossFit community. What more do you need?

Secure some swag in the Sponsor Village. The CrossFit Store will have tons of gear, much of it on sale for the Games weekend only. Additional, the following sponsors will operate booths onsite at the HDC with contests, prizes and Game Day only deals: Life as Rxd, Rogue Fitness, MindBodyOnline, OMG*Omega 3, Vibram, Inov8, Skins, Progenex, Regupol, Rocktape, C2 Rowers, Forged, Rage Fitness, Again Faster, Steve’s Club, Athlete’s Honey Milk, Hi Temp Bumpers, Maine Natural Health, Paleo Treats, Tactical Athlete, Training Day, WOD Book, Fitness Anywhere, At Large Nutrition, Lululemon, Mammograms in Action, Ahh Massage, Garage Gym, Watermans: Applied Science, Trinity GFX, Gym Boss, MIR Weight Vest, SEAL Fit, Stud Bar Pull-up, Under Armour and Weightvest.com

Will there be any childcare available as previously mentioned in an earlier update?
My husband and I are participating on the same affiliate team and our children are too small to take care of themselves.

Thanks for any details you can provide!

I can almost guarantee that mammograms in action is just Sevan in a fake moustache and white lab coat!
