California Self Storage Association Hosts Storage Olympics
Proceeds to Benefit Kure It
NEWPORT BEACH, CALIFORNIA —October 2, 2012—The California Self Storage Association (CSSA) is pleased to announce it will hold a Storage Olympics event at its 10th annual conference in San Diego on October 25, 2012. Sponsored by SpareFoot, proceeds of the event will benefit Kure It cancer research.
Held during the opening night reception, the CSSA Storage Olympics will feature "minute to win it” challenges such as Egg Zone, Chopstick Stack, Junk in the Trunk, and Hot Hoops Basketball, with points awarded for each game.
"This will be a unique sports competition event—much like ‘Minute to Win It’ on TV,” says CSSA Executive Director Erin King. "We will have an Opening Ceremony, after which there will be 10 sponsored tabletop ‘Olympic’ events.”
The event will conclude with an awards ceremony where the most skilled tabletop participants will receive Gold, Silver, or Bronze medals. Each enrolled conference attendee will receive three tickets to participate in the game of their choice, with additional tickets available for a donation of $10 each or three for $20.
