Record is going to Regionals…DETAILS.
You were ALL a part of getting her there – NOW, go cheer her on at Mid-Atlantic Regionals in Maryland! Details follow. Check back on this post for changes to the travel plans, etc. I’ll be keeping a running list of who’s going with who and when by updating the below.[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oiYRxA39_9w]
WHERE’S ALL THE INFO?
WHEN&WHERE ARE WE GOING?
Here’s everything you need to know about the schedule of events, as well as the address of the facility (Prince George’s Sports and Learning Complex at the Field House). This is in Landover, MD – which looks to be about 2 1/2 hours away.
HOW ARE WE GETTING THERE?
I can rent a car/van/etc. if we need to – I just wanted to wait on doing that until we had some word from anyone who has a car and is going on whether or not they would like to drive.
So far Abbey’s car (Jetta) is going down on Thursday and coming back on Sunday.
WHERE ARE WE GOING TO STAY? WHEN ARE WE LEAVING?
This is the full list of hotels in the area that are offering special rates to CrossFitters. It seems like the Best Western about 5 miles away from the event is our best bet for price and convenience. If we get rooms quickly, this should work out like this:
GROUP 1: One group going down on Thursday (staying 3 nights, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday) 1 room, 2 queen size beds – is $115 per night (coming out to $345 total). Split between two people this is $172.50, if four people stay in this room (2 people ok with sharing a queen-size bed) – it’ll be $86.25 for each person for the full 3 days. Right now (Sunday afternoon) there are 15 rooms like this left. Athlete registration is from 3-7pm. I think we should aim to leave at about 130pm on Thursday – but I’m up for anything that works for most. I’ve already reserved one room for this option.
GROUP 2: For those coming on the weekend – you could drive down on Friday night, and plan to be there on Friday night and leave on Sunday evening – total cost for two nights, 2 queen size beds equals $230. So split between two people, $115 and between four people, $57.50.
GROUP 3: For those only staying one night (coming down on Saturday morning and staying until Sunday afternoon), $115 for one night, 2 queen size beds – $115 per night. 2 people is $57.50 each, and 4 people is $28.75.
GROUP 4: Driving down for the day and/or there already and stopping by :)
*Keep in mind you will also have to go here to pay for a ticket to Regionals* A ticket for one day is $10. A ticket for all three days (Friday, Saturday, and Sunday) is $25. DON’T FORGET TO PRINT OUT YOUR TICKET AND BRING IT WITH YOU!
Please get in touch with me ASAP if you’d like to be in one of these groups and we’ll figure out rooms and transport ASAP. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
GROUP 1: Record, Myself, Abbey, Cassie, Meredith, Avener (and obviously I’m assuming more people but I’m not sure how long you all can commit).
*Abbey drives her Jetta*
*Record is also driving – or we are also driving Record’s car*
GROUP 2: Sayra, Linz, Tara (?) or Group 3, – how are you guys getting there?
GROUP 4: Greg Line and Cyndi
I have no idea which group you want in on :) – Linz, Jacob Dinkel, Brandi Mae, Tara
*any coaches wishing to go should know that I’m happy to accommodate your attendance by changing the schedule around for this weekend if you’d really like to go – I’ll be doing this for my Elements Classes as well.*
WHAT’S IT GOING TO BE LIKE?
Well I don’t really know but probably just a little bit better than last year’s Regionals (see below) and MOST LIKELY AWESOME.[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JBGweqNbLD8]
WHAT ARE THE EVENTS?
They are frightening – and listed here.
