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?
