Walk to Defeat ALS 2009

Fiver's Team 2
Fiver's Team, the time is at hand! Again! This Saturday, November 14th, is the Walk to Defeat ALS. We're a little smaller this year, but we will still have a big turnout and a great time.

Walkers registered before last week should have received a packet with maps and other information. Most of it is located in this document here.

- Parking: Loads of lots will let you park daily for $8, our pal Olivia suggests the following lot, which is halfway between the Park and our lunch location:

Coming south on Peachtree St, pass Peachtree Ctr. After Woodruff Park (on left), turn right onto Marietta Street (it's Decatur St on the left here so don't let that confuse anyone). Go to Cone Street (Georgia Bar Association office is on left here); there is a parking garage on the near right corner that charges $5 for the "early bird" - getting in by 9 am will get you this rate. If you turn right onto Cone St and go to Walton Street, there is a little lot on the far left corner that charges $5 a day.

- Registration starts at 8:30 AM at the Southern Company Amphitheater. FIVER'S TEAM will be meeting by the Olympic Fountains at 9:00. Just look for the Hobbits, Superheroes and a group dressed like the cast of M*A*S*H. The "Father Mulcahy" will be our church Pastor. (Another of Mel's "Dying Wish" series. LOL) If anyone has a chance to make a Sign saying "Fiver's Team", or any other catchy phrase, like "Make ALS Walk The Plank!" Slogans that go with your costumes are great as well.

- There will be some musical acts performing at the Amphitheater until the Opening Ceremonies at 9:30. The walk starts at 10 AM

- Water, Pepsi, Powerade and snacks will be provided before, during and after the walk. Public Restrooms are located around the park

We'll see you all at the Walk on Saturday! This was an awesome time last year, as anyone there will tell you, and this year will be just as much fun.
