PreBlast: Deck the Ha11s 2023

It’s time for the official start of the holiday season, Deck the Halls!  An event that is great on so many levels.

What is Deck the Halls?  As my friend Midriff once said, “we continue the time-honored SOB tradition of gracefully scaling each parking deck and collectively holding our breath that security won’t foil our visions of grandeur.”  Here are the basic ingredients:

  1. Launch from the Brave
  2. Run to the top of a parking deck via the ramps
  3. Performa a few called exercises at the top
  4. Run down the stairs
  5. Run to the next deck and rinse and repeat

We started with 7 decks in 2015 and have added more over the years as Ballantyne has developed.  Last year we conquered 11 decks, and will repeat that plan (in a different order) this year.  There are no new decks to add for this year, but rest assured there will be next year when some of the current construction projects are completed.

  • Deck Run 2015 – 11/20/15 – 7 decks
  • Deck Run 2017 – 6/9/17 – 8 decks
  • Deck Run 2018 – 10/19/18 – 5.5 decks for most (foiled by security), 8 decks for Kirby, Paper Jam, Mighty Mite
  • Deck Run 2019 – 10/18/19 – 8 decks
  • Deck the Halls 2020 – 12/4/20 – 9 decks
  • Deck the Halls 2021 – “The Deckathalon” – 12/17/21 – 10 decks
  • Deck the Ha11s 2022 – 12/11/22 – 11 decks
  • Deck the Ha11s 2023 – 12/15/23 – 11 decks

Friday, December 15th is when we’ll be taking our tour of Olde Decklenburg.  The event will be split into 3 stages, each launching from The Brave (11318 N Community House Rd #200, Charlotte, NC 28277).  Feel free to start with stage 1 OR stage 2.  It all depends on how much deck you think you can handle.
