Going to the Games Fund

So we’re going to LA! Now this whole trip is looking to get pretty expensive between the flights, staying for a week, renting a car, food, an endless supply of tough ties for TJ, etc… Amy and I have put up the money to cover the costs to stay for the entire team but we’re hopeful that the CFS community could chip in to contribute to the cost of the rest of the trip.  Below there are two options to donate.  The first one allows us to charge your CFS account for the donation you select and the second option uses Google Checkout.  Thank you for your continued support!

Charge my CFS account:

Use Google CheckOut:

On a related subject, the games tickets sold out early this year just after we found out we made it to LA, but wait for it… they just announced they will be releasing a few thousand more next Monday. For those of you that will not be out in LA with us, there have been some of you that have expressed getting together to watch the games here in Boston. As far as we know the Games will not be broadcasted live on ESPN but there will be live internet feed. Now we have a few options here..the first being using the upstairs at the Stadium to broadcast on their projector screen. The second being holding a viewing session at CrossFit Southie if a few of you are willing to volunteer to be in charge. If you are interested in either of the two options, please post to comments and we will try and get something brewing.

    Hey Guys,

    Would more than love to help organize something to watch the games, sucks I have to work all weekend but would love to put a viewing party together at the Box. Do some WOD’s and watch our fellow crossfitters compete at the same time, best of both worlds haha. Let me know if you guys need help with anything and I will definitely donate to the fund!

    the charge my account field is working now.

    Would love to help put together a viewing session of sorts! Also, on another note, just so that everybody is aware, the tickets that are going to be released next week are LIMITED ACCESS tickets (i.e. you will be allowed on the track and access to the vendors but NOT allowed inside the stadium where the main action takes place…booo).

      half of the workouts were on the track last year and I’m sure you can still see in, even if not seated inside the tennis arena.

    That’s a great idea to get together to watch the games….Love it!
    Maybe ask $5 at the door for the “Going to the Games Fund”?

    Donated, but under the stipulation that my money is spent completely irresponsibly, preferably on post-Games good times, extra points for breaking laws. Pics or it didn’t happen.

    • Goose 06/20/2012 at 2:17 pm

      nice Barrow…we’ll put it toward the Joe Masley Four Loco fund!

      • Joe 06/20/2012 at 8:16 pm

        Allocate Barrow’s donation to the Gosler Four Loco Fund. That investment will pay out ten-fold.
