Hey -- I've signed up as a volunteer but I'm gonna need a ride down from DC....Joe I also live in DuPont...we could zipcar if you also still don't have a ride? Chrissy I may be able to a borrow a bike rack from a friend if you can drive us?
A bike rack would be great.let me know if you get one and we can sort it out from there. Thanks for volunteering!
If still needed, I can give 1 person a ride and have room for 1 bike.
Adam- I signed up to volunteer on the spreadsheet but did not "register" as a volunteer. I just saw this thread an tried to do so but registration is now closed. I'll definitely be there. Sorry for not following directions.
Hey Ferguson I'd love a ride. I'm volunteering and so I don't need the bike spot. wanna email me at meghanctighe at gmail and we can coordinate?
sounds good Meghan- I'll shoot you an email in a bit.
All, very sorry but we have to postpone the race to Sunday.
Due to the heavy rain that fell overnight, we need to give the Potomac more tide cycles to flush itself clean.
We're very sorry for this inconvenience but hope all of you can make it. Registration has been opened back up until 7pm tonight, 5/16, do to this change.
Matt, I added you to the volunteer list and fwd'd you the email I just sent to all the volunteers. Hope you all can make it!!
Thanks Adam. I can still be there to volunteer on Sunday. Looks like I'm on the assignment sheet in a few different locations / times- feel free to place me as needed.
Is there a way to de-register? NTP has an OWS clinic at Lake Anna on Sunday that I'm already signed up for.
Same here. I'm doing the OWS at Lake Anna on Sunday too. I'd like to de-register from the training tri or get a credit toward the next training tri, if that's possible. Thanks, Patrick
Ditto--won't be able to make Sunday and would like to unregister. Bummed the weather didn't work out. Thanks for letting us know, Adam.
I will also be doing the OWS at Lake Anna on Sunday and would like to unregister or get a credit toward the next training tri.
Thanks so much!
I've signed up to volunteer and I can make it on sunday. I am looking to get a ride down and back with somebody and I can meet them anywhere in DC.
Still available for volunteering on Sun with 2 of my tri buddies/kids. Looking fwd to it. Oh, I can also bring my "fancy" camera to take pics as well.
Any way we could keep the race date tomorrow?
Too bad- I am unable to participate on Sun.
Adam- are you refunding sign-ups who cannot join the make-up date?
Time to find an alternate workout for tomorrow.
I'll add another can't make it to the list.
What jonathaneadler said. The rain stopped much earlier today than the forecast predicated and it does not look like we'll get anymore today.
Jonathan, I really really wish we could. For you, others that might be new to the area or just don't know, one-third of the District of Columbia is served by a combined sewer system (CSS), which was developed before 1900. During heavy rainfall (>0.5"/24 hrs), excess flow called Combined Sewer Overflow (CSO) occur.
Here's more info about the CSS and CSO's.
And here's info on the major projects DC Water is doing to clean up our rivers.
So, as stated before, we have to let the river flush itself for safety reasons.
I am still planning to come on Sunday, as are two of my friends who were registered.
That said, will you be sending an email out to those registered? I've talked to several people who aren't monitoring this forum so didn't know before I told them that it was postponed. Wanted to let you know that.
Thanks for organizing and see you on Sunday!
Hey Adam - Any word on NTP refunds/transfers for the conflicting OWS clinic? Thanks for organizing, I'm sure this is a mess to try and figure out at the last minute!
