Let the Games Begin!

Packet Pickup Party

Thursday, October 14 from 3-8pm
39 Shelter Cove Lane (behind Kroger)

PARKING

Our designated parking area is around the Belk store. Please do not park in the on-street spaces around the shops or the park. Please don’t use Kroger’s parking lot either! Security will be monitoring so we appreciate you following the rules on this one.

A couple of things to know:

Picking up for friends

Yes, friends can pick up your packet for you; however, we will not release fundraising prize bags to anyone but you (you can pick them up at the finish line on Friday if you’re not able to attend Thursday night).

Teams of 4 or more

All teams that are 4 or more people will be boxed together (no exceptions). If you have a particularly large team that isn’t staying together, please make arrangements to meet up on Thursday or before the race on Friday morning so you can get your credentials and swag.

Is this your first time? We’ve made a step-by-step guide for you for today. Check it out here!

Welcome Home, FlockStars! There’s a lot going on tonight, but here are the basic instructions:
  1. Go to the pavilion and grab your packet and swag bag
  2. Find your Thursday bib (NEW this year!) and round the corner with your shirt size tear strip to grab your event shirt.
  3. If you raised at least $300, stop at the FlockYard to pick up your fundraising prizes
  4. You’ll pick up your Bingo Bracelet if you purchased a bingo ticket (or do so tonight if there are still tix available).
  5. Make a quick stop through the Newbie Zone to get to our NEW Hometown Sign painting stations (decorate an arrow with your hometown name and mileage so we can add to our “totem poles”
  6. Head over to the MUSC tent to sign the Honor Board and pick up a Survivor Swag Bag (if you are a survivor, of course).
Your Pledge the Pink swag bag (packet) will include:
  • 4 bibs (including a NEW bib for Thursday night to help you/us navigate through packet pickup)
  • Gifts and swag from us (and our fabulous sponsors)
If you raised at least $300, we’ll have prize(s) waiting for you at the FlockYard! Note that we will only give prizes to YOU (not your friends picking up your swag and packet).
If you raised at least $200 this year, we’ve placed a flamingo in our Flocks of Love display to recognize your support. Please feel free to decorate a “naked bird” to recognize those you are honoring. You can take your birdie home with you from 12pm to 1pm on Saturday.

In addition to our own Pledge the Pink merchandise, some of our sponsors and fellow FlockStars will be selling their goods during the party on Thursday, so make sure you stop by and say hey to everyone (click here if you’d like to have a booth to sell products as a PTP fundraiser). Our very own DJ Alan will be back to blast your favorite tunes and keep us in stitches with hilarious games and antics. 

Hometown Signs will be waiting for you to create under the big tent, and the beer and wine will be pouring for all of you with proper ID and 4 bucks a drink.
