Event description

The Road to Minnesota ends on the beautiful campus of St Cloud State University. Congratulations on making it to the main event! To set you up for success when you arrive onsite to register for the weekend, here’s what you need to know:

Is This Really Necessary? – Yep, onsite Athlete registration is mandatory for all Athletes competing over the weekend.

Save the Date – Athlete registration runs from 10 AM – 7 PM CDT on Thursday, September 7th. Late check-in will take place from 8 – 10 PM CDT the same evening. This is different from previous years, in which we’ve offered late check-in the following morning.
o   Be sure to plan your travel accordingly to allow sufficient time to arrive for registration and the subsequent Athlete briefing (keep reading, more on that one below).

Where Am I Going? – Check-in occurs onsite at the Herb Brooks National Hockey Center on the campus of St Cloud State University.
o   Address: 1204 4th Ave S, St Cloud, MN 56301

Parking – Paid parking is available in front of the National Hockey Center or free street parking is available.

Channel Your Inner Boy Scout & Come Prepared – You’ll need to provide proof of age and residency, so be sure to have a valid ID on-hand to complete your registration. Your best options (keep in mind you must satisfy both age and residency requirements):
o   Driver’s license
o   Passport
o   Birth certificate
o   Another officially verified form of proof

Mission Accomplished, What’s Next?
o   After registering, you’ll want to attend our Athlete briefing from 7 – 8 PM CDT Thursday evening.
- Briefing will take place within the National Hockey Center, in the main arena.
o   Once you’re registered, we recommend checking in to your hotel and getting that squared away.
-  The Best Western Kelly Inn is hosting our designated Athlete accommodations and is located less than a mile off of campus.
-  Use code GGAthlete17 to access the block of rooms when booking.
-  If you choose to seek other accommodations, feel free to check out the list we’ve compiled with other options: https://thegranitegames.com/hotel-information/

No Take-Backs – Life happens—we totally get that. But please be aware that if you cannot participate in the weekend’s events, we cannot offer a refund for any reason.

Trading Places – You’ve earned your spot at the 2017 Kill Cliff Granite Games and it cannot be given to another Athlete. (See what we did there? Earned, Not Given.) The exception is in the case of Community Teams, who can substitute other Athletes registered within their Community, up until the point of check-in.
