Grand opening

I was wondering what I can do for a grand opening. I am still waiting for a email back from HQ but just trying to get an idea of where to go with this. I am 20+ miles from CrossFit Georgetown and 15 from Centex and was wondering what would be a good idea. Thanks for the input in advance guys.

Re: Grand opening

Hi,
can i suggest advertising through local media, and invite the guys from the neighboring Crossfit Boxes. Even have a couple of mini throwdown wods with them? this is great for showing comraderie between crossfitters. Also post some mini WOD's on your board and encourage everyone to have a go. maybe offer some small prizes for the best times? have some information handouts on crossfit. I downloaded some youtube videos about crossfit such as game highlights etc and played them on repeat on the TV screens around the gym.

Re: Grand opening

Don't forget about your local fire and police departments. We are getting them involved as well.

Re: Grand opening

Benjamin,

We are a growing equipment supplier based out of Austin and would love to start a long term relationship with you right from your grand opening. We can help advertise it through our site and Facebook page, as well as potentially offer some prizes.

Hope we can help and I look forward to hearing from you!

Smile Re: Grand opening

Trying to figure out what to do ie BBQ drinks and WODs that kind of stuff. I was thinking having food and 2 gift certificates to Lukes locker for a men's heat and a women's heat winner takes all. I don't like talking in front of crowds I want to speak as little as possible. Let me know what you think.

Re: Grand opening

HAHA!! BBQ, drinks, and then a WOD sound like bad news.......

I think that would be cool if you can get the word out. Also, invite the affiliates around you. May be surprised at who shows up.

Better prepare a throwdown area though just in case.
