Re: Grand Opening, What worked, what didnt?

I've been to quite a few Grand Openings and here's some trends:

Introduction: Lead Trainer gives a good solid 5-10 talk to the crowd on what CrossFit is all about, fitness, etc.

WOD: Fight Gone Bad. It is easy to set up stations in a straight line and work a lot of people through it.

Specials: First 50 members that sign up are locked in at XXX price usually gets more interest.

Good luck, and I hope this little bit can help.
We added contests like max pullups, and 200M row competition. It's a buck to enter and winner takes all!
