    Do you have to buy the weights (4 bricks, 20 pound steel plate, or 20 pound sandbag)? Or is this provided at the event?

    • For WSFB – There should be nearby parking available

      For GRL/After Party – Park at any pay lot close by. The parking deck at the discovery place seems to be a pretty good option within a short distance.

      We have reached out to some parking services, but we have not heard back. If any discounted or free parking deals are worked out we will update the post.

    • Heather –

      Yes, it is near Rock Hill. You can click the address to get a map view of the location. It shows about 45 minutes from the central part of Charlotte. I don’t see your name on the attendees list for FAD, were you planning to participate? Thanks!

  3. Heather Williams on

    No, I’m not able to participate this time. I was going to come with my friends who are though. Take pictures ;-)
    What time does FAD end? Just wondering about getting to WSFB in time.
