Crowd camps out for free Chick-fil-A food

Around 150 people were already lined up at the new Chick-fil-A location near Five Points by 6 a.m. Wednesday, hoping to win a year's worth of prizes when the store opens tomorrow morning. The restaurant will offer 52 free meals (one per week for a year) to the first 100 people in line when it officially opens around 5:45 a.m. on Thursday, Sept. 8.

If more than 100 people are still in line tomorrow morning, the restaurant will hold a raffle to determine which ones will receive the 52 meal certificates. Winners have to be at least 18 years old and have a form of identification to qualify for the contest. (See http://www.chick-fil-a.com/Locations/First-100 for details in the contest rules)

Several people set up tents in the surrounding area near the restaurant, located at 2000 Highland Ave. South. A release from Chick-fil-A said that "food, fun, games and prizes will keep the 100 participants busy throughout the day."

Alan Collins will be speaking with these dedicated Chick-fil-A fans today and will bring us an update during the 6 p.m. newscast.
