Carpool, Anyone?

WOW…Brutal!!!  A poster used to promote carpooling as a way to ration gasoline during World War II. (Image courtesy of Wikipedia)

The Canada West CrossFit Games Regionals is next weekend (April 27-29)  in Vancouver, and it’s going to be EPIC!  Now that the WODs have been released, it’s evident that this will be an event that you won’t want to miss watching…

With that said, who among you plans on going to Vancouver for the weekend to watch?  If you’re heading over at any point for this Friday, Saturday, and Sunday event, please post to the comments section!  We’re hoping to facilitate some different carpools so that folks can travel together and keep costs down.

If you’re driving, be sure to post here with what time you plan on heading over on the ferry, and how many seats you have available in your car.  If you plan on heading to Vancouver and don’t yet have a ride, post that here as well!

With any luck, we can help you all work together to arrive safely in Vancouver and show your support for our Zone competitors.  Let’s get sharing!

Are you coming to the Athlete Send Off Party tomorrow?  For more details check out: If you would like to carpool, meet at the Zone at 1:30pm (post to comments if you are carpooling – specify it is for Sunday)
