    Default Cranksgiving 2019 Registration

    Cranksgiving 2019 Registration is now live!

    https://www.eventbrite.com/e/cranksg...on-77662916875

    The event is Saturday, November 23rd!

    This year's event is being organized by a few folks from the forum and I hope you'll be able to come out and have some fun while supporting the Arlington Street People's Assistance Network (A-SPAN).

    Full Description
    Cranksgiving is a food and clothing drive on two wheels. Part bike ride, part food/clothing drive to benefit A-SPAN, and part scavenger hunt. All you need is a bike, a bag, and a lock! (and a few bucks)


    How it Works

    Cranksgiving is a choose-your-own-adventure-style bike ride that benefits those in our community in need during the winter season. Participants are given a manifest of suggested items to purchase or locate and tasks to complete in three hours. Participants will provide receipts and photographs when turning in their items to score points.

    All items collected will be donated to the Arlington Street People's Assistance Network.

    Teams

    It's suggested that participants work in teams of 4-5. We'll have an area designated on the day of the event to help match solo participants and teams looking for additional members.


    Donation Only Participation

    If you're not able to make the event, but would still like to support, please register as a donation only participant. All donations will be used by the organizers to bulk purchase items for participants to pick up when completing challenges. All items will be donated to A-SPAN.


    Starting Location

    The event will begin and end at Ireland's Four Courts, 2051 Wilson Boulevard, Arlington, VA. Participants will be given a list of tasks at 10 a.m. and must return by 1 p.m. to begin scoring. The after party runs from 1 to 3.

    9 a.m. - Ireland's Four Courts is open for brunch or coffee before the event

    9:30 a.m. - Check In Opens

    10 a.m. - Participants will be given manifest with locations

    1 p.m. - Participants return to Ireland's Four Courts with items for scoring

    What to Bring

    1. Bike Lock

    2. Something to carry stuff with: A basket, pannier or backpack should do

    3. About $10 to $20 to purchase scavenger items with

    4. A cellphone (you'll need to show us pictures for some of the challenges)


    Prizes

    We'll be awarding fabulous prizes at the after party at Ireland's Four Courts.

    We're up to 10 participants for Cranksgiving! Our starting and ending location at Ireland's Four Courts has beer, so you should probably sign up just for the beer afterwards.

    We just got word that Trader Joe’s is donating soap and cereal to Cranksgiving. Participants will have the opportunity to collect these items for their team by completing a challenge at one of our fabulous pit stops.

    Sign up today!

    It appears some of you may be intimidated by the really long registration link.

    We took care of that for you: sign up for Cranksgiving at bit.ly/CranksgivingNOVA

    Fun fact! If you’re not able to attend Cranksgiving, you can still help like Chris did by making a donation to the event. All donations will be used to purchase items to give to participants to collect for completing challenges.

    Visit bit.ly/CranksgivingNOVA and click the register button which will take you to the option to donate.

    Thank you for helping out Chris!
